what colors to choose for my exterior?

hoinoyDecember 19, 2012

My wife and I have decided on cement fiber siding, stone veneer, and standing seam overhangs. Only thing we are sure about is that we prefer a darker brown with a hint of red to the metal seams. Don't know what to do with the siding colors and stone veneers.

We like the looks of iron gray or boothbay blue from Hardi, but woodstock brown may go better with more stone choices.

Please help!

I would start with the stone...much easier to match paint colors to it than the other way around....

Beautiful elevation. I know you didn't ask about this but is there any way to get rid of the pork returns? I've linked a more pleasing approach IMHO.

Here is a link that might be useful: Tudor stone

love it this exterior!

not sure if this is what you like..but the link below sort of looks like woodstock brown, and may help with stone selection.

we are building a house based on this house...and woodstock brown was one of the samples that resembled this house.
