Please help us choose an exterior colour scheme for our beach house. I'm thinking dark warm grey, but I'm not sure if we should have a lighter shade on the lower level or will this make it look disjointed? It's quite a small house in a very laid back beach spot. Any ideas?

Color of roof? Will there be trim on the house? Color of windows? Are those 2 front doors? Is the green house yours and the red and the white? better photos? or sketch of what the house will look like?

Can't really get a sense of the overall shape of the house. What will be the siding material ?

Hi, I know there are so many things to take into account and it's hard to get perspective from a photo. The white you can see is an extension with building paper, and the red is the existing building which is two story. The exterior is wide weatherboard planking, the windows are silver aluminium with very little trim. The doors in the front of the picture are French doors from bedrooms that will open to an enclosed courtyard ( yet to be built of course) The roof will be a light grey/brown but you won't see it much because of the flat roof style. There will be decking and ballustrades covering half of the new extension.

Oh and the green house at the rear is the neighbours.
