We moved into our house last August and have decided it's time to make over the outside. We will be closing in the carport with two white craftsman style garage doors. (I would like to keep them white)
As you can see the house is basically black on black! I have just started to collect samples and have them painted all around the exterior.
I definitely love the grays, charcoals, creams and whites, but I am having a heck on a time with the trim. The trim right now is black and I feel like it still needs to be something dark with a lighter body. I just can't see the post and beam trim in a white - I feel that is won't look good. I think because, you can't see the roof I am struggling.
The windows are white, with nice trim around them, but they are painted black and I want the windows to really POP as I only have a few in the front. I was thinking of painting the trim around the windows and garage doors white only.
I really need help as I just don't know what direction to go.
I have attached 3 photos of our exterior as well as some inspiration photos.
The dirt pile in front of the house, we are building a low cedar deck and will have landscaping going up the walkway - would like to plant two palms.
Some of the colors that I am playing around with are
Sandy Hook Gray
Flagstone - (I really like)
