Color Coordination
1 Attachment(s)


I am terrible in selecting/coordinating colors so I need urgent help in selecting colors for exterior wall lights and shutters.

...We are having a new front entry door installed. The doors stain finish is a medium oak (see attachment).
....Our homes bricks are old georgian style in a clay with white, gray and black veins.
...The casing around the door is white.

Here are my questions:

1. Exterior wall light finish (color). Due to the design of the entry door area, exterior wall lights must be installed on the 10" wide trim panels framing the door. Considering the mideum brown stain of the door and the natural clay of the brick what is the most appropriate finish color for the exterior wall lights?

2. Shutter color. Given the color of the brick, door and trim what is the most appropriate color for the tradional louvered shutters.

Thanks, Henry
