What color should I paint the outside of my house?
August 18, 2013 in Design Dilemma
I've been pondering for the last 3 months of what color to paint the outside of my house but I didn't want go too bold or too soft. Also with my roof being black, it was hard for me paint the house certain colors. I need help for the Houzz team to decide on my next paint color. Please and thank everyone in advance.

It's hard to say, without looking at the whole picture.

Your home definitely has mid century modern details like the windows and roofline. I think I would play up that feature. I have attached two houses with two color schemes.
A Dark taupe would be lovely with white trim or light gray with white.. I would remove the shutters to emphasize the modern.

Can you snap a picture of the entire house instead of just 2 windows?

The "before" picture of your home is a better start than the one in the discussion below but some similarities with the roof line and style. I thought it would interest you. With the brick rather than going blue as clsz did I think I'd lean towards a deeper grey, do away with the shutters, trim out the windows in a cream, power wash the brick and porch...and you're on your way.

I'd also make at least 8' deep planter beds and plants some white azaleas, roses, or hydrangeas, whatever grows in your zone. You could also lay flagstone, pavers or brick on the patio. Cute home. Lots of options. I think you'll get more ideas here.
