Exterior of new home

KathyBransonNovember 27, 2012

Help! We've a onyx black roof; milgard tan windows; natural stained mahogany door. We need decisions on faschia color & gutters (black? carriage red? brown?); siding color; stucco color (around bay windows & top of arches). We want to use California Gold slate ledge rock on lower front part of house & on pillars in front of front door. Any help is appreciated! Thanks.

Pics would be helpful, and you may want to post on home decor forum as there are lots of color mavens there.

OK...here's the front of the house.
I think we're doing bronze gutters & faschia board. Ledge stone - California gold on pillers & part way up front of house. Creteboard siding except on bay windows and top part of door. Sherwin Williams paint - desert sand I think then 2 shades darker for stucco. Opinions?

I would definitely pull the siding color from the stone...not sure I'd do the stucco in a different color as you already have a lot going on with the facade...siding, stucco, stone, roofing, garage doors, front door...especially since you have so little siding on the front relative to the garage doors and windows. I would think about selecting colors of the rest of the trim and surfaces to minimize the differences so you get a more unified look to the house.

Thanks for the advice. We'll probably do the siding & stucco the same color. BTW...I went to your page. Great remodel!
