Cupola on a Colonial Home? And Hardie Plank Color Suggestions!

3 years ago
last modified: 3 years ago

We are doing a two phase approach to improving our home's exterior. First a new roof, extending the rakes, along with a portico over the front door. (In about a month.) Next year, we will do siding, hopefully Hardie Plank. I need help with color of the siding/shutters/front door, and I need to know if a cupola over the middle of the garage ridge would look ok or be "too much?" Any advice would be most appreciated. The roof will be Certainteed Landmark Pewterwood unless we hurry up and change our mind fast. I'll add cupola pics we are considering and the blue tones I love but am afraid to choose because I've never seen a colonial like ours with blue like this before. PLEASE help! I posted once before and didn't get any replies and I don't know why. Is there a trick to being "seen?" TIA! :-)
