Hello All,

I am officially stumped and have to choose siding and if I am going to have shutters and what colors by april... I would love some suggestions... I like savana wicker with black shutters and with a black roof?

Thanks Gina

Go to a paint store web site---a real one like Sherwin Williams. They have a feature where you can pick a house design close to yours and actually see different colors/trim combinations.

Gina, it is really hard, I agree with you, and even the best virtual displays are helpful only to an extent.

Here's a slightly peculiar thing that I am doing--I am going around my neighborhood with the samples you can get from a contractor and seeing if I can find houses with the same color. It is quite shocking to see how different each looks on a whole house.

For example, my neighbor picked a Certainteed color called herringbone. Next to the other small samples, it looked gray, which was her desire. On her house, it looks bone (more brown than gray) which is fine but a total surprise.
