I'm finding that choosing colours is the worst part of building a house!
After months of looking around I've decided I like Grey and white together.
It's a nice contrast without being too in your face like black and white.
(although I'm thinking that colour scheme for my fancy ensuite! )
We're building a steel frame rural house on a dirt road with colourbond exterior.
I'm just after advice from anyone that lives on a dirt road and has white window frames.
Would you do it again? Do they show the dirt a whole lot more than black?

For a typical gravel road, I'd expect white to show the dust less than black would, in the same way that it tends to show up less on a white car than a black car. However, with bigger contrasts in the colour scheme, it may overpower the effect of dust more.

Great colour scheme! I think grey and white for a home absolutely goes together well. When you look at a glance, your white window frames should be alright. However, when you look closely you will of course see dust and dirt on it. If it bothers you, my advice is to wipe your window frames regularly. Black window frames will show more dirt than white ones.
