love facade colors and front door - I would like to know colors for trims and wall, as well as where to find front door. My house is somehow similar but roof is dark-grey/blue shingle, so I'm looking for a complementary colors (browns/grays) to pain it. i would appreciate your reply. Love this house!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

2. How do you and guests approach your home? “It’s all about that glimpse over the fence,” Nilsen says, emphasizing the need to consider how people approach your home. Go out and see what your house looks like from the sidewalk and across the street. Then think of how you approach your home and how you will see your fence from inside. As Nilsen says, often “you are seeing [your fence] from within, rather than from beyond.” There’s a big difference between an overhead CAD drawing of your yard and the real view from the street, so go outside and get the actual perspective.Shown: A low, semiprivate fence allows foliage to grow in front and behind the fence, giving both the homeowners and neighbors good views.
