Painting soffits and porch ceiling
June 30, 2013 in Design Dilemma
Your advice would be appreciated! We are painting our house next weekend and have chosen exterior Benjamin Moore Millstone Grey with white trim. My husband would prefer to leave the porch ceiling and soffits the same colour as the siding...while I am hoping to highlight the soffits and porch ceiling to lighten things up. Could you please give your thoughts and recommendations?

Here is another older picture of our house showing the garage doors. Should the garage doors be painted white or should we leave them the same colour as the siding, which will be BM Millstone Grey?

I'd paint them either the siding color, or if you are using a third deeper color for any of the trim, use that. You don't want the garage doors to compete with the other architectural features on this house.

It is a tradition in the south to paint porch ceilings sky keeps bees & wasps from building their nests up there but now it has just become a wonderful tradition.

I'm leaning toward painting the trim and porch ceiling white.
