Wow... interesting question... But to be honest one would have to take this upon themselves to decide the final outcome. What shade of blue? What are the surrounding areas? What environment is it in? Is it a traditional theme? Is it a contemporary setting? Their has to be a hundred questions that I would have to considered, in order for me to answer that properly.
I will steer you in the right direction though....Please introduce yourself to the basics of color complementary education 101. The color star developed in the late 1800 and used by such artists as Monet, Renoir and Van Gogh could help. The RGB color star will also help you in this mind bending dilemma. Please Google... RGB color star and this should point you in the right direction... At the end of the day, colors are interpreted and are excepting to each individual differently. For instance... in a beach theme a dark rich Navy blue could be complimented with a creamy white wall. In a modern setting a rich vibrant blue could be paired with a silver toned wall. Its the setting, the person and the surrounding that drives color combinations and more than that the feel each and every individual has when they combine colors. Hope that helps.....good luck and experiment... its only paint... if you don't like it.... paint it again.. but most importantly.... HAVE FUN... its not that serious....:)

Is the steel structure transferring the load into the planters?

Yes exactly. the ones that are on the wall side sit on the parapet wall and the posts in the planters are attached to the bottom of the planters which then sit on a tile which is supported by pedestals. so the weight is distributed.

We manufactured the poles/rods that hold the Sheers. The framed pergola was designed and built by CGD as most of our pieces are specific to each customer.

Hey there...May I request for one an advise. We are in process of completely renovating our house in India. We have planned a deck on the first floor which also will serve as the porch for our front door. Could you kindly advise on -
Which wood rafters can we use?
What could be done on the waterproofing front so that no water drips as the deck is right over the main entrance door?
I would really appreciate due advise. Thanks. Cheers Priyanka.
