This exterior [was] in the process of being painted. It was previously an unfortunate shade of pink and is now in the middle of the transformation!
Much better don’t you think? Normally pillars look the best white [or cream] but in this case, this huge house without a lot of great artchitectural detail really works with the accents and pillars painted in a charcoal.
One of the reasons why the charcoal and brown works in this colour scheme is because they relate so well to the existing slate steps and patio areas. Always consider your fixed elements first before you choose a colour scheme.
