Need help with exterior paint colors
July 11, 2014 in Design Dilemma
We are replacing our front windows to eliminate the arch windows and replacing our cedar shingles with batten and board. We are repainting our entire exterior and need help with color schemes. The new windows will be square/rectangular with a grid of panes across the top. Any suggestions are appreciated

Which house is yours?

Either way, you need to find something that will work with the stone on the front of the house.

Go to the paint store and get as many paint swatches of colors in the stone to compare to it. When you find a couple you like, buy some samples. Either paint an area of the house or use a poster board or small piece of sheetrock to see what you think of it. Since it's the outside of the house, it isn't as critical how it looks in different light as you won't be looking at it 24/7 like you would if it was inside. For trim I would go with two or three shades darker to add a nice contrast. BTW, your house is beautiful.

In most cases go with 'neutral' tones which the house already is.
