Exterior Color Schemes: Mountain Roof Recommendations
Home on the range is tall on style with the feature roof color Mountain. A westward journey of color scaling monstrous mountains, creeks, and streams in the wilderness bring an earthy hue to any rooftop.
Homes vary by region but DaVinci’s Mountain color clearly fits the timberline build as well as homes in a wide variety of locations and styles. Choosing an exterior color scheme for your home with this rich grayed brown is easy because it goes well with so, so many colors. What makes it difficult is deciding which color scheme you like best for your home from what seems like an infinite number of color combinations.
When creating an exterior color palette, I use my “top down” approach to help me narrow down the choices. I start by looking at the color of the roof. From there, I follow my FRESH steps to choose each color. To help you find the right color scheme, I have selected five fabulous exterior color palettes for homes with DaVinci Shake in the color Mountain. You can use one of these color schemes exactly or use them to inspire you to create one of your own.
The home pictured uses the natural elements of wood and stone. A monochromatic scheme using a medium brown mixed with tan, and light cream keep the focus on these natural textures not distract with bold paint.
Trouble finding the perfect color? Let nature be your guide and go green. Envision a forest filled with various species of trees some light some dark, but all in a similar color family. This is exactly how light green, a deeper muted green and brown work together. DaVinci Mountain roofing tops it off – literally, with a multi-toned roof tile to compliment these gray greens. Utilizing contrast is still an option by painting or staining a dark brown door color.
Yellow is a color that gives your home for a sunny and fun personality. Golden yellow and brown are perfect partners. Mountain roof tile on top of the gold tone paint gives a upbeat welcoming tone without drawing away from the natural surroundings. Bright yellow would call too much attention and is best reserved for more tropical settings. The brown, almost purple accent color compliments the main color beautifully. On the front door this color rich in brown from a distance will illuminate with purple undertones up close.
In home design, white often shows classic and timeless style. Homeowners seem to either love or hate white. For those who love white, its best to go with a contrasting door color. Painting the door darker than the deepest color of the Mountain color on the roof is a great way to add contrast and depth to the home.
Many historic properties contain a similar color palette due to naturally occurring colors. A muted color can sometimes be more powerful in framing a property or landscape. The cream exterior color is simple when paired with off-white trim. The pale brown accent can detail windows. Dark brown would cover the door while coordinating tones with the Mountain roof.
