Need help with contrasting paint color, cashew crunch

December 26, 2012 in Design Dilemma
I attached a picture of my house. The current paint color is Ace brand Cashew Crunch (C20-5). The siding of the house is stucco. The front door as well as the fence is the same color as the house. Looking for ideas on a good contrasting color to break up the monotony. Additionally, I'm looking to replace my current fence (wood) with a decorative metal fence and will be painting the fence.

Thank you in advance!!

I don't see a fence. Can you post additional pictures please?

Deep red, green or blue would all be good choices for the front door.

I'm thinking red ocher as in the photo with white, brown or black elements.

Attached is a picture of my current fence. When I find a color, would it be an option to paint my fence and front door the same color?

No. The fence would look nice in white. Your front door should draw the your eyes attention; making you look at it. If the fence and the door are the same color it is confusing. Your eyes don't know where to look.

Can you post a picture that looks straight toward the door? And one that is a little closer to the windows?

It looks like you may have bump-outs that could be painted a different shade of the same color.

Here are the pictures. I also want to update the brass address plate, door handle, door bell plate, and such.
