Exterior Color Scheme..Porches, Door ??

pauli12April 26, 2011

We are redoing a house to live in and I am very excited as well as perplexed. I don't know how to figure out what color to paint the porches, doors and handrails.

Let's just say we use the color "milk pail" a greenish, bluish grey. If we painted the trim around the windows "beach sand" which is a very light greenish gray(think lime but lighter) then what color would the porches be? Is there some kind of rule or thought on this?

The windows are white the soffits are white. Also handrails? I don't want too many colors going on. So porches, door and rails...any ideas.

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

I suggest you post this on the Home Decorating forum and include a photo or two of your house. Also, mention what brand of paint you are using so people can check on line to see your colors.
