I'd go with a buttery yellow or an orange but that only be for an accent colour.

question about that fence installation - Hi, Great looking picture- what detail did you use to "lap" the wood on that fence? I'm worried about water and freeze/thaw. Thanks.

I really like the wrapped corners and ends. What prevents the wood from separating at the corner joint as the wood shrinks from drying over time? What kind of fastener was used here? Is the channel siding mitered? Is it working over time?
