Im bout to paint my house. Im looking at this house and for some reason I think the front door shouldve been a different color than the shutters. It looks too conformed. Just my little old thought. However I do love the colors otherwise.

I thought Benjamin Moore is a paint store, not a place to get siding. jshanebrook@yahoo.com

My guess : siding in Benjamin Moore Ashley Gray, trim\pillards in Benjamin Moore Manchester Tan, shutters\door in Benjamin Moore Dior gray ... I would rather paint the door Benjamin Moore Black Jack (a darker shade of Dior Gray) for more contrast.

Great design! What size exposure on the siding? - Is the siding a 5 inch or 6 inch exposure? I like the look and lines. Am trying to decide between 5 and 6 for my colonial home. Thanks!

Siding shingles color and shutters color - I assume the colors of this house are pain not natural cedar shingles. I am having my house built and I need to choose my siding colors. My choices are from maibec, easter white cedar. I would like to try to find something in a similar combination as this house. Any ideas? Thank you.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Bud Dietrich, AIA added this to 9 Top Siding Materials
Horizontal Lap SidingProbably the most ubiquitous of siding choices, horizontal lap siding can be made from wood, aluminum, vinyl or fiber cement and can be finished in an unlimited range of colors.This siding choice is a natural fit for a colonial, or traditional-style, home as it works well with simple, boxy forms and symmetrical compositions. So whether your home is a stately colonial …Not sure what siding to use? Work with an architect on your remodel
Bud Dietrich, AIA added this to Seal the Deal With Fiber Cement Siding
Make mine traditional. Most fiber cement board is used as horizontal lap siding, ideal for traditional and colonial-style homes.
Kelly Porter added this to Invigorate Your Home's Exterior With Color
If you want your home to keep a low profile, try a tone-on-tone look. Here, two shades of grayish taupe work together to give this house a modest facade that doesn't stand out.Suggested paint picks: Galveston Gray and Ozark Shadows, Benjamin Moore
Laura Gaskill added this to Nail Your Curb Appeal: Traditional Style
Play up symmetry. A common element of many traditional-style homes is the use of symmetry. (Imagine taking a photo of the front of your home and folding it in half, with the front door as the centerline: When each side looks nearly identical, that’s symmetry.) If you have an older house that has been remodeled over the years, one way to bring back its classic styling is by making sure that the facade has symmetrical elements, such as:The same number of windows on each side of the doorMatching plantings on both sides of the houseSymmetrical structures like columns, paths or pergolasArchitect’s Toolbox: Strike a Balance With Symmetry
