Choosing board and batten colour
Hi there, we’re stuck on colouring for our home. The window trim is white, pillars and house trim are a black. The first picture is our house now. And the second was our original design. The third is our stone choice. The two outer walls will be stone and bottoms of the pillars. The rest will be board and batten and the top gable ends will be cedar shake. The second picture shows the siding as cedar shake rather than board and batten .What colour of board and batten should I choose? And should we leave the cedar shake original colour or stain it? Thanks!
From what I can see in the pictures, it looks like you are looking for brown tones for your Board and Batten siding. I would suggest that you look at either Espresso or Dark Drift. If you go with Espresso, I would suggest that you stain the shakes a lighter colour to create a contrast. If you go with Dark Drift you might want to keep the shakes the original colour. The stone you have chosen, looks to have a bit of a grey tone to it as well, it was hard to tell from the picture. If I am correct that there is grey in the stone, then you could also consider Windswept Smoke, which is grey with a brown tone to it.
