Color my house.....what looks best for an "old farmhouse" look
January 20, 2014 in Design Dilemma
We are not in love with our rusty orange brown brick home with the red and black shingle roof. We are installing white windows and possibly a front veranda/porch. We are ok with painting the brick. Hope these pictures give you an idea of our existing colors and home. Thanks!
Thank you for reporting this. Undo
I would consider keeping the brick, but adding and changing a lot of the other elements, as I think the brick is a nice color. You could change the roof shingle, paint and/or add window trim, add shutters, paint the siding above the garage door, paint the front door and garage door, and the dormer window siding, all in a color, to be determined. A few color ideas: sage green or charcoal gray. The front door could be in a third color as shown below..
