My husband and I bought our home about 3 years ago. The home was built in the 50s and it is a traditional two story colonial. Since the moment we bought the house we have really wanted to change the original aluminum siding. It has been such an eyesore for me and guess what?! We are getting new siding! I am so happy I could jump for joy. You would think me being a designer, I would know right away what color I would want to use, but when I was given the colors to choose from I had no idea what to pick. When it comes to my own home I am very indecisive. My first instinct is to do a gray siding with white trim and black shutters with a black garage door. I am a little hesitant though because our roof is an ugly reddish orange color and since it is a new roof that the previous owner’s had put on, it is staying, so I have to work with it. The safe option would be to go with a tan or beige, but then our house will look exactly the same as most of our neighbors. I am designer, so my house has to stand out a little bit As I was flipping through the colors I came across this pretty green that I thought would look great, but I was nervous that my house will look too Christmas-y because the lower half of my home is red brick. Here are some pictures of homes with vinyl siding that I really like.
