Update Stucco, Trim, Front Door and New Garage Door

linnhodgesJanuary 12, 2013
We have lived in this home for 25 years. I would like to update the stucco color, front door, trim and replace the garage door. Please help me with color and garage door design.

I think a sage green would be nice for the house and cream for the trim, black for the accent color, as in door and windows. If you'd want to make a big change, replace the bow window roofing with copper and add a copper awning over the front door. Could also be done with raised seam metal roofing. You could add faux shutters to the two palladian windows above in the black accent. Be sure they look like they could close over the window. To minimize the garage door, you could paint it a darker sage from the same color strip as the body of the house. I"d be for removing the clumpy hedges, unless they are bloomers like azalea. You need some updated plantings suitable to your area. Keep it open and airy, not something that will become clumpy.

I love it now! No need to change. Maybe just fresh paint because I seriously think it is perfect "as is". Save your money. :)

I think that your home is beautiful. We all get the itch to change things. I would find out what exact style your home is and if you decide to spend money on major remodeling, then I would stick to that era. This is of course my opinion.

Paint the garage door the same color as the house or black (like the roofs of the bays). The architecture of the house is quite appealing but there is no protection from inclement weather at the front door. Decoentusiaste's custom arched copper awning might be a good option. It could also be done in dark zinc to match the planters on the porch..

Hy, what do you think about the colour : green tea ? Walls and garage door in the same colour .... and plant flowers instead of your bowls lugustrum. They give some very shady look to your house. Try Allium Bulbs (Giant) or Allium 'Globemaster'

For the garage door, you may want to consider a carriage house overlay or a carriage house stamped style. This would really make your doors stand out and it would go along well with the overall style of your house! Here are a few other garage door styles to consider: http://www.motorcitydoor.com/residential.php
