Exterior Color Schemes: Autumn Roof Recommendations

A classically tailored roof brings a well-styled feel to the entire home. From the coast to the farm, the versatile nature of the Autumn shade is clearly an alluring benefit.

Autumn is one of my favorite times of years and DaVinci’s Autumn cedar shake alternative is also one of my favorite color blends. It works well with many colors and the variations of hues of Autumn blend perfectly with the natural environment.

When creating an exterior color palette, I follow my FRESH steps to choose each color. I have selected five fabulous exterior color palettes for homes that look great with DaVinci Shake in the color Autumn. Use one of these color schemes exactly as show or let one or more of them inspire you to create an color palette of your own.

Colonial Revival Tan

A rich warm gold, paired with Autumn roof can only bring back the spicy scent of fall and pumpkin spice. The trim and accent color follow along with rich red and an off-white trim.

Egyptian Pyramid

A home deep in the forest is barely visible when a monochromatic mix of brown hues coat the exterior. If one color was called upon to wake up the brown, it would be fresh blue. Nature is our guide and a blue door would be the perfect compliment for an outdoor setting.

Navajo White

A muted white paint color coats the home exterior while the white trim liven up the smaller details of the home. The brown and deep teal blue are a different, but welcome color option that stay in line with the Autumnal tones.

For all non-risk takers the main exterior color Sourdough is the safest option when it comes to pairing with Autumn roof tile. The trim and accents get a bit more daring using dark green, brown and red.

Wedgewood Gray

Autumn roof tile can go bold with a soft blue reminiscent of a coastal home. The main color is blue paired with a dark blue trim and complimentary color orange produce an unexpected design masterpiece. The orange also ties the roof tile back into the main color nicely.
