Exterior paint color - How dark can we go?
August 29, 2013 in Design Dilemma
Our stucco house is totally lacking in curb appeal, so we plan to paint it and add decorative stucco trim around the windows. We will likely remove the ugly (though functional!) sun shades. Since there are no architectural details, such as shutters or a stone face, we don't want to go too neutral. However, we are nervous about being too bold. One last challenge is that our roof is VERY dominant from the road since our house is downhill from the road. So we feel this limits how dark the house color can be. We are considering a taupe and a sage. Either base color would include a creamy trim. What do you think...how bold is too bold? How dark is too dark? Thanks!
