curb appeal - help me pick paint colors! add character & charm

14 years ago

I've just purchased this little cottage and have been renovating the inside. It has white aluminum siding and trim. I'd like to paint the siding and leave the trim white - something to warm it up - that still coordinates with white. And I'd like a red tone or dark brown/black door (using brushed nickel hardware). Anyone have a good paint recommendation? It's under some tall trees, so I think I need to stay lighter and brighter or it'll feel really dark.

Any great & inexpensive ideas for the front are welcome too... I don't love how the left side has just one window and the right side has 3 - looks really off centered to me. Shutters? Not sure I love that idea - but thought I'd get some more ideas...

Thanks in advance!
