You can try doing a color sample with a weathered grey color on the mansard and a warm white on the walls and see how it looks. Exterior colors are very dependent on location so it's not something you can decide without looking at the colors in situ.

This is a real Mediterranean color scheme. It works with the bright sun in Southern California. I think in Maine you might want to use denser colors. Look at the colors used on farmhouses in Normandy, Brittany or the Netherlands.

Thank you. I will investigate your suggestions; however, the house to the right is white, totally, and the one to the left, a yellow gold. But I do see what you mean. Without sun all day it will look somewhat dull. I don't want something boring but I don't want to be too conservative. Any thoughts?
