Exterior colour choice on new stucco

careoline's picture

They don't call it stucco now, it's a cement coat....over styrofoam insulation. The company gives colour samples 1 x 3 inches and gives six 8x8 ft samples upon request before signing a contract. My setting is a rural green with trees to shade in the mornings. What colour do I want with brown shingles with blue and beige flecks (commonly called driftwood). This split level design has a steep pitch on the front down to the 10 foot level so to lift it, I would like lighter tones. The hues in GTA are light grey-whites on exteriors...very citified. We would be power-washing after a season of lawncutting. The homes nearby are country farm brick (light yellows) and coastal cottage stylings (teals and blues with white boardsidings). The stucco is very scarce here but we need the insulation from the wind on this 20 year home. Is light peach too sweet? I saw someone refer to BM-CC-460 grey-white. Is that an acrylic paint that can be added to cement coatings? Who makes that? Is it a soft colour that blends with my surroundings but can match with brown roof? Perhaps this is a design and decorating forum topic that I want anyone to respond to
