Need Help with Color Blends for Our Home

Having a hard time picking a color as they seem to look different on paper than they do on the website. Could you look at our picture of the house and recommend a color or color blend. I am liking the blend of dark mountain, dark tan, but could really appreciate your suggestion for this style of house.

Dear Ms. O’Brien,

You are on the right track with the color blends you like for your home.

I recommend that you look at DaVinci Roofscapes Multi-Width Shake in Mountain and Tahoe. The Mountain blend is darker and more brown/gray. The Tahoe is slightly lighter and more brown. The Tahoe will be closer to how the roof currently appears to me in your photos.

Either color blend will work well on your home. Look at the colors against your home in the light and determine which you prefer with the main and trim color of your home as well as which you think fits in best with the natural surroundings.
