Hey everyone this is my first property and it is located less then a mile from the beach in Southern California. I'm going modern with the style and I'm trying to figure out a cool modern paint scheme to go with. Any ideas would be great. The house has a stucco addition which is on the left side and stucco all around with front wood trim all red. I was thinking about sanding the garage and staining it dark. Adding trim to all the windows and painting the trim white. Then going with a light brown or light blue exterior and then sanding all the red trim along the railing and red trim in front of house and painting maybe white? Not sure what are all your thoughts?! What color should I paint all the stucco? Should I mix and match? Low budget so cant do much demo :/ but she's got good bones!! #veryexcited

Paint wood portion of house kalmata olive. The the concrete a charcoal grey... Kalmata Olive is a deep dark brownish plum color. Remove wrought iron and replace with tinsel fence rails in steel. Door color a bright teal, aqua or turquoise blue.
