What colour for our roof, eaves, exterior colour on our dated stucco house?
May 16, 2013 in Design Dilemma
We love more modern-looking homes with dark grey stucco, wood accents and bright front doors, but not sure it would work on our Toronto house. We are starting with a new roof and eaves (we'll replace the siding and change the stucco colour later) - we'd love to hear your ideas and suggestions!

First photo shows how the house currently looks with grey shutter and periwinkle front door; second photo is a better shot of the current roof and stucco colour (it's an older photo, before we painted the awning, shutters and front door).

Thank you!

What about a bright yellow door with gray siding and white trim

Remove the country style shutters and the awning - they are taking you away from your desired modern vibe. Try a more contemporary awning and colors RFF suggested. For modern curb appeal, remove shrubs and mis-shapen trees, and try xeriscape plantings that work in your area. Power wash and then stain the concrete.

I would keep the eve the same as the stucco. As in this picture, I think it could use trim between the two different sidings.

This for your roof.
