Limewashing new house and don't know what trim color to do.

4 years ago

We are purchasing a new house and want to update the exterior to make it a bit less... brown? This picture was obviously taken on an overcast day so it does appear a little brighter in sun, but the front will be in shade in the summer. The brick is a white/cream textured brick, the mortar is brown, and the roof is a brown/red depending on the amount of sun.

Current thoughts are:

- Limewash the exterior so there is not as much contrast between mortar and brick

- Replace front stone with brick

- Remove overgrown bushes and landscaping and replant

- Center the lanterns

So I guess my question is what color would trim would work? Maybe a taupe? Or should I stick to something that matches the limewash better? Any other ideas?
