We are building a new 40m square deck out of composite with a Stratco Outback pergola. I am struggling to choose the correct colour composite deck to match in with our existing brickwork and gutters / roof.
1. Our bricks are a dark brown colour with an orange undertone - at least that's what I think they have!
2. The gutters are painted in Jasper - concrete roof tiles are brown (faded as the roof is old!)
3. The fascia is paperbark
I was thinking the Stratco pergola should be in either Desert (very close to Paperbark) or Sand Dune (live a cream colour). Gutters obviously stay in Jasper.
I'm not sure about the decking itself though. I feel anything too brown (ipe) makes the whole area look brown and dark. Teak type colours which have an orange undertone also seem to clash with the bricks. I think a taupe colour like Trex Rope Swing may work but not sure if it's too bland and boring.
I would love some opinions to see if I'm on the right track. I've read heaps of stuff on matching clours, complimentary colours etc but I just seem to be going around in circles at the moment.

A light grey or antique grey as shown in the link https://www.abbeytimber.com.au/composite-decking/ would be my pick. John
Thanks John. That’s also another brand of composite I’ve never heard of before.
Light grey is similar to the Antique of NewTechwood and Rope Swing of Trex I’ve been gravitating to. So that helps a lot. Thanks.

ANy more suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
I feel a grey colour goes best with our bricks but having said that our roof guttering is Colorbond Jasper and all of the fascia, posts door trims etc are a warm type of cream or taupe. Our colour scheme inside the house is also warm shades of neutral and taupe.
