1930 Tudor Revival - need exterior color ideas
We are buying a house near the Purdue campus for my daughter and a few roommates to live in. We have to completely redo the outside...new roof, paint and window repairs.
I am going crazy trying to pick a color scheme. I find myself drawn to the yellows- not bright yellow, but a mustardy or pale yellow. We will most likely own this for around 5 years, so resale is a concern as well.
I'm open to bluish gray, greens or even reds. I don't want a white or tan body. It's too generic, as everyone in this area has these colors. I really like the creamy whites as trim too.
I also can't fine any houses like this on the Internet. All of the ones I find have a brick peak, whereas this is all cedar siding.
What do you think about making the peak with the front door a slightly different shade as the rest of the house? Either lighter or darker to give it some dimension?
