Exterior trim colours

dana_rJuly 18, 2012
I need help choosing colours for my windows, soffit fascia etc. I have a tudor home and I don't know what colours to go with. Cream grills and trim? I had chosen dark brown but the colours available through my window guy were either too red or too green. I'd been hoping for an espresso colour (almost black). Should I go simple and stick with white? All the tudor trim and garage doors will be painted. Our new front doors are a dark cherry wood.

Wow. this says you posted 8 months ago! I imagine by now you have updated the house? If so, would you post a picture; I'd love to see it.

Good job so far! Nice choice with the garage doors! You might add some black iron faux hardware to them? Regarding color for trim & doors, check out houzz pics, English Tudor Style exteriors. Trim and doors tend to go "Dark"! I like to approach exteriors from a historical perspective (that's the architect in me)!!!
