We are trying to decide on siding colours for our home. We are looking at the Gentek sequoia line and will likely do a combination of board and batten and horizontal siding as well as an accent wall in stone. We have a brown metal roof and currently the house is painted in cedar tones. We would like to stay away from Browns and beiges. We thought of Venetian red as a choice but think it might look too “barn-like”. Leaning now towards windswept smoke or dark drift with white trim. Any advice ?
I do agree with you, the red would create the barn look you don’t want. I like Windswept Smoke with a white trim to give a more traditional look. It you would like to go a bit more modern you could try Pebble or Canyon Clay as the trim colour for the home. Either option would look great, it is more a decision based on your taste.
