Looking for paint color themes for this 1959 MCM. Inside remodel is distinctly modern. Current exterior paint is lovely if a bit tame. Would like something more distinctive. Need to keep roof, and want to keep rock veneer which has a cool vibe. Give a girl a hand Houzzers!

Omg, I love, love, love your house. Im sure you'll get great advice on this site, my first thought was a sage green or even black so can't wait to see what others think and to see what you decide.

moss green would look great with your roof and stone

I like charcoal for the trims/fascias. Perhaps a burnt umber for the body? Think the trim/body both dark is too dark. Two colors for trim & body accentuates windows & walls separately, compliments lighter stone. Happy Houzzing.

I'd paint the wall sections in a tone two shades deeper than the roof in sunlight. Then hit the windows with a deep steel grey. The windows become more modern and unified with this treatment.
