Exterior window color Linen or Winter Wheat

We are starting the framing phase of our new home. I am going with Loewen SDL windows. I am trying to decide what color to go with. We will out Old Overton brick with buff mortar. The shutters will also be painted black. I am not sure on the porch color but I think our inspiration picture may be dove white on the exterior. I would like to hear thoughts on that as well.

Hi joallen001, do you already have the sample cards from Loewen? There can be quite a color difference between real life and the website/computer screen. Your inspiration pics are lovely. If you can take a photo of the color samples with your brick, that might help -- and the folks over on the Decorating forum also are very good with color. Good luck!

Yes me and the window rep went to that exact house with loewen window chips. She recommended the linen color. But it is lighter than the inspiration pic. But the winter wheat is darker. She said she thinks the linen color window will fit the style better.

Wish I were more sensitive to color but if they both look good to you with the brick and trim I don't think you'll go wrong. Someone with color sense (not me!) will chime in soon.

Did the Loewen rep tell you what the upcharge would be for the architectural palette colors (that made a difference to my husband, maybe not to you)?

She did not mention any type of up charge. I will double check on that.

Maybe she will be able to give you the architectural palette for the same price? I would have loved that but our Loewen rep was not able to do so.

Are the windows the same color on the interior as the exterior?

The interior will be Douglas fir so it will get painted.

I like the linen. Love your inspiration house.

Thank you. I went ahead and ordered the linen!
