    I am thrilled to find these pictures. Trying to decide on a cool dark color scheme for our 1958 small ranch house. We live in California and have two large redwood trees in front with a south western exposure. Want to capitalize on the shade from the trees. These colors are nice and rich and cool. Also, we have the exact same style of siding, so will be a good visual for my husband too. Super excited! Your place looks lovely. Thanks for posting this.

      Thanks, Sue! Glad you found the color choices helpful – the side of the garage that I showed in my photos and the side of the house that has the sliders face west, and I have found the colors to be fine in that light. We have a lot of trees on our land – a mix of evergreens and deciduous species, so I felt that a green-gray color for the house with brighter accent colors would do the trick for us! I’d love to see photos of your house…thanks again, Sue!

    What is the roof color on this house? I have a very similar style board and batten ranch with large overhangs that is currently a very similar green with similar tan trim. When we painted the house we had a light brown shingle roof. We now have a charcoal standing seem roof. We have to replace our garage door (currently trim color) and we are having a hard time deciding what color it should be. Since it faces the street and is 16’x7′, it is very visible.

    I like the color you did on this garage, but not sure how it would look with a charcoal roof. I would rather not repaint the house just for a garage door, but we are considering re-painting the trim a darker gray-green and doing the garage door the same color. However, I like your idea of painting the garage door and front door the same but different than any other color on the house.

      Forgot to mention that I’m in New England as well, just outside of Burlington, VT

        Hi, Todd – My own roof is a charcoal color – the house trim color is Ben Moore’s Camouflage, which does go a bit green, depending on the light. As to what color to paint the garage door, it does depend on how much you want it to stand out; I like having my garage door a bright color – it doesn’t face the street, however. If you paint the door the same color as the house, and frame it with the trim color, that would differentiate it from the house a bit. As in many things, there is no wrong answer! It depends on your preference!! Thanks so much for writing!
