We are replacing the windows and siding but are keeping the white soffitts and eavestrough for now. We are planning on elongating the upper windows by about 12 inches and considering removing the shutters. We will replace all of the windows with casements but do not know if we should use the same colour on the bow window as on the smaller windows. The 2nd photo shows our brick and shingles along with White, Pebble and Dark Drift for the windows and siding, but we are not sure what colour scheme and siding style would best update our home. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
I would like to see you go with Dark Drift for the siding and Pebble for the windows, which would help blend with the existing stone. As for the bay window, I would keep it the same colour as the other windows. It is enough of a feature on it’s own, that you don’t have to over emphasize it with a different colour. As for enlarging the windows and removing the shutters, I agree with this, but I would still like to see some constrast colour on that portion of the house, so maybe do a wide capping of the window in Pebble as well.
