We are nearing the end of "Phase 1" of the renovation which included the entire upstairs of the house. We are getting ready to put a new roof on the house-which normally wouldn't precipitate big decor decisions, but in our case it does. We plan to paint the outside of the house-in "Phase 2" of our renovation, after the new roof. To pick the right roof color I need an idea of what the outside color of the house will be-which makes sense.
As a reminder the current house is light khaki with a dated teal color accent. Not our taste. Since I am all about taking risks with color I lean toward a grey outside color scheme (I know-CRAZY TOWN-but my comfort zone is khaki and taupe.) I used the Sherwin Williams site to mock up some ideas. This is crude-but you can get the idea. Also keep in mind-our lot is heavily wooded..and we are not planning to change the stone. We will do a full overhaul of the outside landscape next spring, "Phase 4." I will be adding lots of color to the front of the house with reds, purples and white bushes and flowers. Don't let the current UG-Landscaping influece your ideas.
Please let me know what you think.
|Option 1. Green, Grey and a Teal-ish accent.|
|Option 2- Grey/Blue, Taupe and Orange|
|Option 3- Khaki, Dark Khaki and Red|
|Option 4-Light grey (almost cream), dark grey and blue.|
|Option 5- More khakis and a green accent|
|Option 6- Dark slate grey/blue, light grey and a bold yellow. Note I like the tone of this door but yellow will be no where in the landscape if I have my way.|
|Option 7- grey blue and an orangey/yellow accent.|
