Dark and Moody Exteriors

Hope everyone had a wonderful holiday weekend. Mine was just the right mix of fun and relaxation.

Recently we replaced our roof and gutters. Although not as exciting as decorating interiors, I wanted to be sure to choose a roof color that complemented our siding color (a mid range sandstone color). Looking around for inspiration I was struck by how the color of exterior siding has sifted from light to dark and moody. More and more people are choosing darker siding colors and complimenting it with lighter trim. I must say, I for one, love this trend.

Gray, brown, orange, navy or even black are all hot trends in exterior siding. New siding in your future? Get inspired by one of these great homes.

Love the dark blue color of this siding with the white trim & white windows.:

This exterior brings together all the elements I love.  10 &12 pitch roof lines, shake siding, dramatically contrasting trim, curved copper dormer, corbels, a single arched window that echos the arch over the door, all topped off with  the perfect copper chimney cap.   Bravo.:

Happy decorating!
