Need help on our façade.
August 19, 2014 in Design Dilemma
Hello! My husband and I are inheriting a townhouse from my grandfather. We gutted the interior, and the design is leaning more on industrial. Our problem now is our facade. The original design of the house doesn't include a roof over the parking space in front, so our grandfather had a steel roof built, unfortunately, it sticks out like a sore thumb.

I need some ideas how to implement a replacement roof that will go with the original facade of the house, and I was thinking something like this?

228 Pendleton Road

Moreover, our roof is green and the gutter is stainless. Unfortunately, we can't change the roof color so we're stuck with it. I wanted to paint the exterior grey and replace the stones under the window with red bricks like the ones in our interior. Would that be ok?

I appreciate the help!

Personally I would allow the exterior of the house remain true to itself rather than trying to bring the interior scheme outside. I feel red brick with the green will not add up to a good look. Your exterior seems to want a verdigris colour so I would work around that and perhaps a pale olive grey green to render it seamless.

As for the replacement roof, if there were a way to have a verdigris roof - I think it might work well - this is the colour (usually made from copper) that I am talking about

or if not a tin roof which gives a more muted metallic colour to work with the greens
