We just redid our landscaping and as a finishing touch (yesterday) painted the exterior of our house Benjamin Moore "Saybrook Sage" HC-114 and we HATE it. We need a new color ASAP - so that the painters don't have to re-do the prep work, but are torn on which direction to go. We were thinking in the greens, but WHAT WERE WE THINKING? Now, we are leaning towards greys/taupes? But really have no idea. We need a color that goes well with our dark walnut-stained trellis and landscaping. Our house is very BLAH looking itself and has very little to NO curb appeal? This photo (though not the best) shows our concrete color, roof color, the trellis color and the landscaping colors - we need something that will go well with these. For some reason we thought green would work, but realized we were VERY wrong! We need help! Any suggestions on a great exterior paint color that would look good with the colors we have going on? Keep in mind that we have that textured stucco (we would love smooth stucco, but it's too expensive to do). Also, the garage door is about 1/2 of the facade and we are torn whether to paint it the same color as the house, white or do a wood overlay and stain it to match the trellis. THANK YOU!
