Exterior color- too bold?
So, it's about time for us to think about ordering our stone and shingles, and it's gotten us re-thinking our original exterior color scheme of a lighter blue/green/gray. Just as of lately we've began thinking about taking it 180 degrees and going with more of a charcoal/white trim/contrasting stone look. Any thoughts or opinions? Our windows need to be white, so the any siding color (board and batten and shake shingle siding) needs to go with white. Would this darker siding color look good with a dark-stained wood front door too? Are there any heating/cooling/wear/tear factors to think of with going such a darker color?
On a side note, does anyone have any idea what type of stone this is, or have seen something similar with such bold contrast? Thanks in advance.
