Since this house was due for painting the owners decided to take the opportunity to change the look. The rock work at the sides of the overhead garage door and the patio stones at the front entry have red and brown in them. The downspouts and gutters are brown with a reddish undertone. These are fixed features on the house and are important to take into consideration when choosing new colours.
It was decided that the trim would stay brown to match the gutters and downspouts. The current brown was a bit lighter and had a reddish undertone. We decided to re-paint it with a darker chocolate brown. The body was changed from green to a brown with a warm undertone. It works well with the bricks and rock work. The doors and overhead garage door were repainted in a cream colour similar to what they were.
