Will this trim color match my roof and brick color I picked out?

If this attitude gray is not the best color Please give suggestions for trim! I am sticking with the ballet white for brick for sure. See all 6 pics

    The ballet white will really brighten up the house. I wouldn't use gray with a brown/tan roof. The house color gives you a lot of other options. I also would paint the fascia board along the roof Edge the same color as the house. Painting it the shutter, and door color will make the house look small.

      Before doing any painting on trim/shutters make sure that you are not in a Home Owners Association area with restricted architectural modifications. If you paint it a nonconforming color, you will face fines and be required to paint a proper color.

    I think you’re fine with these choices. If anything, maybe a tone or two lighter with the gray? At least on my monitor, it’s a very warm gray. Real difference is your roof line is much closer to the shutters than in your “ inspiration” picture, making it more critical that the colors blend together. Good luck.

    can you go with a more brown grey (taupe) as opposed to the blue grey you have chosen? I think you need to play into the roof colour a bit more...the white will look fab! You could just paint the brick for now to get a feel for what colour to do the shutters. I would also make your front door stand out by doing it a different colour than the shutters, a scarlet or cherry red perhaps

      Yes on a bright door color (again, if HOA approved if applicable). Maybe paint the shutters to match roof and then a favorite color for door. My two exterior doors are duckling yellow and I love them -- such a happy color!

    My suggestion is......don't over-think it. I have the same problem when choosing paint colors. What I have come to learn is that I usually go back to my first choice, which turns out to be great! You don't need anyone else's opinion.....YOU'VE GOT THIS!

    Wont be much of a contrast with the grey against the white brick and wont go well with a tan roof - grey and tan? What about greige which is a combination of grey and beige if you want to stay in the gray family and it will go better with the tan roof. Google greige pain colors and see how rich and gorgeous it is. Or you could go with basic black for the shutters/trim and front door which would make it look stately against the white brick.

    I tend to agree with Holly, in a way. The darker contrast is great, and you need it for the 'pop', but I would choose a warmer gray to blend in with both the roof and the warm Ballet White. My favourite are the warm grays with a very slight tinge of green. They are awesome with warm white and beiges.

    I like the grey you picked out. I don't think it will go well with the shingles. Have you thought about a mossy grey green?

    I would get a sample quart of the gray you are thinking about and try it on the trim on the back of the house, next to the roofline. Leave it for a week or so and see if you like it. That way if you don't like it you haven't spent a lot of money and can paint over it. I personally like it and think it would work well. Check it out at all times of the day and as the sun moves as colors change depending on the light hitting it. Best of luck.

    I agree that definitely a bit warmer grey. Don’t be afraid to be a little bolder as in make the shutters a little darker. I also agree that the fascia should be the same color as the House. I would paint all trim and shutters in whatever grey you pick (grey and tan can definitely go together) BUT...pick something brighter for the door! There are some great ideas for contrasting door color on Pinterest. Have some fun with it!

    You might go to the Sherwin Williams site and upload a pic of your house. You can then try different colors on your house. I loved using it to pick colors for our house!

  • Mary Mary on Apr 11, 2018

    I would deffinately go with a warm grey/beige. Then I would paint the door a shiney black. Very traditional but a classic that wows with curb appeal!

  • Helaine Helaine on Apr 11, 2018

    Make sure your roof and shutters are the same color!

    I agree with most everyone else here you should do the front door a different color so it stan out more. I pain my house a dark gr and shutters black with the door dee red it goes with the red bric planter beds I hav.
