Exterior Paint Colors

drjay9051October 10, 2013

Just looking for suggestions. I have a small CBS home with red metal roof. Single story. On 10 acres. No neighbors. Surrounded by lots of grass and trees.

House is painted a dark brown with lighter brown trim, shutters and fascia.

i want to brighten it up. I am sold on a fairly bright yellow.

What about shutters and trim? I thought red shutters and fascia/trim in white or maybe black shutters?

So many choices. Oh yes, the door? Red like the roof or neutral white. I suppose I could do white trim as well but I want some life in this tired house.. I have been on Google Images for 2 hours and am lost !!

Here is a link to Ben Moore's exterior color brochure.

You might want to check the Sherwin Williams site to see if they have something similar.

I love yellow houses!

Our house is BM Harbortown Yellow, with BM Philadelphia Cream for trim. The cream trim adds more interest than white would, and is still bright and cheerful.

I think this combination would go well with a red roof, too.

Tan usually goes with red roofs sort of like the Spanish colonial or mission look. You could trim in a sage green or similar.
