Help Needed - Exterior Trim Color for Stone House

2 months ago

Need help choosing exterior trim color for my historic stone house. Finding it difficult due to the pinkish color of the stone. Also, previous owners installed white vinyl windows which is not a good look on this house so I want trim colors to help camouflage this. Just installed a new roof so its time for new colors. Currently, there are 4 different colors on the house; I am open to keeping a multi-color look, or simplifying with fewer colors. I do not care for 'fleshy' colors (like the current gable area color), and want to stay away from colors that highlight the pink in the stone. I've looked at the possibility of using Needlepoint Navy on the gable area with Zurich White on the remaining trim, or Plum Brown on the gable with Egret White for trim (but not sure how to incorporate this gable color on other areas of house to create balance - without it looking like a rugby stripe!). Open to any other color ideas. Roof is GAF Camelot II in 'Antique Slate.' Porch roofs will need to be painted as well. Thank you!!
