Help with exterior colors with my green green roof
June 23, 2014 in Design Dilemma
I would love some suggestions for exterior stain colors for our 22 yr old west coast home. The deck was stained 2 yrs ago and is needing to be done again as well......argh
The house was originally stained with oil. The original section is 22 yrs old and the addition has 10 yr old oil stain. I will be adding window trim as well so would love a suggestion for that as well. The roof is hunter green tin which unfortunately will have to stay. Any ideas would be appreciated! Thank you.

With your hunter green roof, a dark red house would look great.....

Since the siding is stained, it won't be possible to go lighter, but a refresh will make a big difference. For trim you could use a tan that has a green tone to it, like in this pic.
