Need help on paint color
Would like to paint our house and purchase a new front door. The roof color is throwing me off a bit because it is blue grey and I am not a fan of it. Any suggestions to giving this ranch some pizzaz?
I love a blue, perhaps like a dark wedge wood blue, it would go perfectly with your roof. Also a think grey would be great more toward s a charcoal with a touch of blue, also to match your roof and really add some pizazz to your lovely home. These colors would also really accentuate the great landscaping and paver driveway. Also I would go with a dark gray trim for either color, a little more modern than just white.

you will want to go cooler on the body to go with the roof but at the same time remembering that stucco looks its best when it retains a sense of coming from the earth which means it needs to be a warm color. There are a lot of greyed warm colors you could try. You want to keep the body fairly light or with the roof it will feel glum. Also make the window trim and the rest of the trim the same warm off white. Paint the garage door in the body color. Because the body is stucco and the door is wood or metal they will be the same color but appear to be two different colors which blend well.
I really can't see the front door enough to comment on that. Sorry
