We don't have ice. I would use a rough texture in a colder climate so you would have traction.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Palladian windows. Named after Venetian Renaissance architect Andrea Palladio, these three-part windows, with a central light capped by a semicircular fanlight and flanked by a pair of sidelights, are common. They typically appear either on the second floor centered over the front door or in front or side gables.
Bud Dietrich, AIA added this to Top 10 Solutions for Architectural Peeves
5. The Palladian window. Surely, Palladio would weep if he saw just how ubiquitous and poorly scaled his namesake window has become. It's not that these aren't terrific windows, it's just that they've become a cliché.Solution (shown): Look at using a Palladian window in context. Properly scaled and detailed, this window can be quite elegant and historically correct, as in this example.
Bud Dietrich, AIA added this to When to Paint Your House Brown
While dark brown paired with bright white trim is a classic color scheme, a nice variation is to combine medium brown with cream trim. This will yield a softer and quieter exterior while retaining the architecture's classical formality.
Vanessa Brunner added this to How to Choose the Right Exterior Color
Brown. Brown homes don't have to be boring. Rich chocolatey shades, stone-inspired beiges and reddish cedar hues can help ground a home to its environment. See: When to Paint Your House Brown
