Colors for a New Farmhouse

This is the black and white picture from plans

My House:

We are building a farmhouse out in the middle of a field. Right now it will get direct sunlight all day. We are a simple family with a relaxed lifestyle.

My Project:

We are in the middle of choosing the exterior colors. We have went ahead and chose a white for the exterior window color thinking that was a safe color. But now the siding, trim, roof all seems too overwhelming to finish the color scheme


  • I would like advice on siding color.
  • We are looking at the James Hardie siding, so we have the option to choose one of their select colors. Or the siding can be ordered primed to paint ourselves.
  • We also would appreciate opinions and advice on accent colors to go on the exposed pitches or trim.
