Need Help Deciding Which Bellaforte Color Blend with My Brick

Choosing colors for roof & siding. Attached are photos of my house & brick.

Dear Ms. Rasmussen,

I think that the direction you are going for the changes to your exterior are on target.

A gray or gray/brown roof in either slate or shake will work well with your brick. I have recommended either the DaVinci Multi-Width Shake in Mountain or Bellaforté Slate in Slate Gary-Veriblend to give you the look you are after.

For your siding look for a color like Benjamin Moore Stonington Gray HC-170. You can also go with that same type of color but darker depending on what looks best when you look at it on your home next to the brick and in your environment/lighting.

You can stay with the same color family for your front door. Just look for a tone that picks up on the darkest values in your brick. It looks to me like Benjamin Moore Sienna 2092-20 might work well. Use this as a starting point but again look at your actual brick and trust your eye to pick a color that is the right tone. It doesn’t have to match and in fact will look better if it is a bit darker and/or brighter so just look for a door color that blends — not too red or too orange.
