 o
Marvin Wineberry- help with color matching

Not sure if this is the right forum for this question, but I'll give it a shot!
My husband and I are trying to pick colors that will match the marvin wineberry for our exterior. We will be doing cedar shake (not sure if light or dark).

Does anyone have any recommendations for good colors that will compliment the wineberry. Specifically for the window trim? We would like to stay away from the green family, but are open to all others.

Thank you so much!

Best bet is to see if you can get a sample of something and take it to the paint store where they will match it for you and get the formula for future use.

Found this image in houzz.com that shows a house with cedar shakes and has a comment stating that the windows are Marvin windows in the wineberry color.

There are several more images of this house including a couple more exterior shots. The link below will take you to them. It looks to me like maybe they went with a very dark brown or grey (almost black) for other trim work. Perhaps you could contact the developer and find out.
