Please help me Choose a new House color


Sample Paint Colors:
Please help me Choose a new House color-img_3953.jpg

Front of my House in a Red Brick Veneer, the rest of the house is the press board siding, current the pale faded green. (The reason for the tan siding pieces; they are new pieces of siding that have never been painted) The trim and gutters I plant to leave white.

Thank You

more info needed . Style of house, general area, what other houses in the area are for color, roof color, siding material. any brick?

and most importantly: what color does your wife like?

I see the brick now. My computer apparently had a malfunction and that pic didn't load at first.

Sorry about that, Was still posting the pole and additional info.

1963 Custom Built 2 story, press board siding on all but the front, which is the red brick veneer shown in the photo I added. Neenah, Wisconsin (30 miles south of Green Bay WI). roof is light grey.

I think we like Spicy Mustard, Deep Royal, Cottage Red and Borel Forest the best. Bayshore Beige is too plain, and I think the Semolina looks too retro.

Neither I nor Karen can come to a decision. We were back and forth to the Benjamin Moore dealer a number of times today getting samples. I am leaning away from the Borel Forest, even though it is a nice color, but I think we want a change from green. (house was deep green but is seriously faded)

The Spicy Mustard, Deep Royal, and Cottage Red are kind of a tie...


Thanks,

Jamie

2 story, front is the solid pitched roof, back and sides are like a normal 2 story with windows on the first and second floor. (Sides, Back and attached garage are all the press board siding)

I edited my first post to include the answers to the other details you asked about.

Thank You.

Jamie

p.s. I am quite impressed with the bold Benjamin Moore Colors. I plan to use Aura.

Of all the colors you listed here I can only vote for the soft yellow (upper left), but frankly, they all look wrong to me... and you are using the wrong method to test them - sorry!
