Color Difficulties… Please Help
I’m having difficulties picking the right colors on my home. There is too much dark red tone.

Product: I’m not sure.
You have a lovely home and it will look even nicer with a new roof that complements the existing colors and downplays the reddish tones.
On your style home you have the choice of going with either the slate or shake profile.
There are two color directions that I recommend. Go with a brown that is darker in color than the brick and more brown/black than brown/red. The DaVinci Mountain blend would be a good fit. If you prefer to keep the trim in the brown family this would be a good choice. When it is time to repaint choose a brown that blends with the tones in your new roof.
Or you could go gray. European blend slate be a good choice because it has a few brownish tiles placed throughout that would blend with your brick and window frames. A solid gray could also work. In either case you could then change your main and accent colors to light gray/dark gray to update the overall look of your home while still going with a color scheme that would respect its history.
I hope that helps you to make your selection.
