White Siding house with stone
lacevedo
January 31, 2013 in Design Dilemma
I love this photo of this house with white siding and stone. I would like to incorporate the same look on my one story house. The roof on the 2 story is black but because a one-story I don't think the black roof will work. Help! What color roof should I go with?

I think the white is too strong a contrast with the stone, a lighter buff color will be more harmonious. Hate to say gray, ever these days, but a slate gray would work. Faux slate even better. Real slate best yet. Copper gutters and downspouts.

I agree with Ironwood. The stone is great, but the white is just too harsh. Find something softer in a tan or sage green. Take a look at the "wicker" or "sage" colors here and use them as a starting point. http://www.gentek.ca/en/Index/Home/Revement/VinylSiding/SequoiaSelect.aspx

And for the roof choose a two tone brown, such as http://www.iko.com/images/res/swatches/Cambridge%20-%20Driftwood.jpg or a charcoal such as http://www.iko.com/images/res/swatches/Cambridge%20-%20Charcoal%20Grey.jpg
