My first thoughts were to pick out one of the colors from the multi-colored brick to paint the bay window.
But after studying every brick I realized I didn’t like any of the colors that much.
I decided to take a chance on Restoration Hardware’s Paint color, Slate.
It ended up looking quite nice. Agree?
Now it’s time to focus our attention on the garage.
Being as how we blew the budget on the inside, ain’t no money for a new garage door.
So paint it is.
As you can see, our carpenter added a piece of wood down the center to break up the long windows.
I wanted to repeat the 6-grid pattern of the front door windows but I was out voted.
He also replaced above the garage with shingles instead of the trim.
So now the question is what color to paint?
I’ve been studying homes and noticed that the norm is to paint the garage white if the house has any sort of color. But I don’t normally like to play by the rules. I’m wanting to incorporate more of the Slate shade either on the shingles or garage. So help me out peeps…
Slate garage, white shingles?
White garage, slate shingles?
White on both?
Slate on both?
Pink garage, purple shingles?
What about a fresh new coat of paint for the shutters? Black or white?
