    Default PLEASE help me choose exterior color(s) for my barges and eaves

    So... my house has light yellow vinyl siding (not planning on painting it), a brick stairway to the front door, and a slate foundation facade (dark blue/grey).

    So what color do I paint the barges and eaves?

    White? (trying not to be bland)
    Blue-grey? (may be too severe with the light yellow vinyl)
    Brick red? (I was told that's like matching your shoes with your tie)

    Of course, there's the windows too!

    AHHHH! Help me please. Logical and abstract suggestions welcome.

    THANKS!

    Can you post pictures here?
    Maybe someone who has photoshop skills can whip up any color changes.

    Check out the paint aisle of your local big box store. There they will have brochures of complimentary house colors. Choose a brochure with yellow as the primary color and you'll have a number of trim color choices that will go well with it. The easy choice is white, with a brown or beige soffit (overhang ) color. Paint dealers will have a broader choice in brochures to choose from.
    I suffer from CDO ... Its like OCD, but in alphabetical order, LIKE IT SHOULD BE!!!
