We think our house is ugly

help me please

My House:

My house is about 30 years old. It is located in Mississippi . Mine is the oldest and ugliest house in the neighborhood. It was a foreclosure that has had no upkeep and was empty for a year before I bought it. I have redone the inside of the house now its time for the exterior. I want my house to look updated like the rest of the neighborhood.

My Puzzle:

I am going to paint the entire exterior of the house brick and all. My roof is a orange brown color. I have tried 20 sample colors and I am not any closer to picking colors. Everything I put on the house to me does not match the roof. I don't think I have an eye for this sort of thing. I will probably need a new roof in 2 years. Should I try to match the roof? Should I pick colors and match the roof to the house later?


  • I would like like to know what colors would look for the house, trim and shutters.
