I am trying to figure out what color trim to put on the pavilion we are having built in our backyard. The posts will be having a cultured stone on the lower third and the gable wall will be a light Beige/Taupe painted siding (same as the house). I am wondering if I need to "match" the fascia and soffit with the same thing I will be using for the house? If so, the house will be white trim. The house will have the same architectural shingles as the pavilion. The exterior color scheme of the house will be similar to the picture (from a Houzz submission).
But, I am thinking a white trim on the pavilion may not look good with the darker wood posts? Maybe if I stayed with a darker fascia that blends well with the posts?
Bottom line I guess is, does the pavilion need to have the same color scheme as the house, even though the pavilion does have dark wood posts? Or, can I go with different fascia and soffit colors?
Any suggestions would be welcomed. Thank you.
