We are quickly approaching the "pick your colours" phase in our build. We are stuck. Please help. The roof will be galvanised as well as the guttering. Initially thought a lite green but then thought maybe a lite grey.

White with Grey combination will look great

Light grey would be my pick in this situation.

What neighborhood area of the country are you in? The northern states and midwest have the more natural tones: green, soft yellows, burgandies, soft beiges. The southern states have the more hot colors, yellows, reds, and bright colors for the hot weather climate. I am from the midwest, the colors on houses are more conservative here.

is there a break in the center of the house or belly band ? you could do a split color lighter green on top and darker on the bottom with white trim

Why not go a little bolder?

And add some white trim to go with it.

We are in SE QLD on Morton bay Australia so the climate is sub tropics. The area has post war colonial style "Queenslander" and new modern homes. There is not a belly band so two tones would be hard to pull off.

Funny you'd mention that, I, my immediate family is in Queensland!... my dad moved there, they now are in Brisbane! near Mt. Tamborine!... I would have never thought you are in Queensland!... well, I have been in a bunch of houses there!... Victorian type. Corrugated tin roofs, large wrap around balconies! with some victorian type details!... so hope to see more of what it's like there!...

The colour in the centre is called Pebble Bay. That is the colour we are going with for the house exterior. The white will be on the trim, the dark green/brown colour is for the slats under the house and possibly the guttering/soffit. My question to you is which blue (A,B or C) should we paint the front porch ceiling? Any comments/opinions would be appreciated! The colours are all by Taubmans: A is Wiltshire Blue, B is Abracadabra and C is Pins and Needles.

Non of the above unless you change the green/brown colour.

A is the softest the others are closer to a slate grey. Are you looking for a soft sky color? then A. if you want a grey blue then B or C.
