We are building a craftsman bungalow this summer and trying to decide on exterior colors. So far we’ve picked: Gables will be aspen brown shakes from Grayne One wall and porch posts will use Fusion Stone Great Lakes in brindle.
We’re looking at Gentek for siding of the remainder of the house. We’ve picked out the wicker cafe 638 but no one around here has used it for more than accent trim so we can’t see what it looks like on a large scale. Looking at the small sample, it looks okay but concerned it might be too light? The dark shakes on the gables are most important to us and want to find something complimentary.
Aspen Brown is a great shade to work with. I like Wicker as a complimentary colour to this, but if you think it is too light, why not Pebble? They are complimentary colours and will work well together. To add some lighter tones to the home, you could use Wicker as the soffit, fascia, eaves and window trim to bring it all together.
