'Just read your post about roofs. Because our house is in FL, we were advised to go with a lighter roof. Matter of fact, we may even get more credit on homeowner's insurance now! There were not a lot of choices. This was NOT even the lightest grey/slate color; there was only one darker than this one. Now, though, the black shutters and door look really dark, in comparison. Wishing I had chosen the darkest slate color.That said, we will be repainting the outside, the front door, and replacing shutters, etc. It's such a great house, and I want to do it justice. My husband didn't want to go with a dark roof, because of our location near the gulf.How can I pull outside together now??? I loved the bluish grey green color of our house, but may need to change color, and color of shutters too!' Jeanette L.
Dear Jeanette, There's nothing wrong with your gray roof, I think it looks great with your turquoise house and terra cotta walkway. You're right changing the shutters and the front door would make it perfect!
I would paint your front door SW 6691 Glitzy Gold because yellow looks fabulous with orange and turquoise. Or perhaps a darker turquoise like SW 6767 Poseidon.
Your shutters should be a darker charcoal gray like Behr 780F-6 Dark Granite to relate to your roof.
Hope this helps make your house happy!
