Hi Michelle and everyone!
Yesterday I was advised by a interior decorator at our builder's showroom to add a 2nd render colour to the front of our house to give the house more of a projection. She didn't really comment too much on what we had selected for our exterior colours, maybe because apart from the bricks everything else is Woodland Grey! We've seen another PD house with it and we both really liked it - shock horror!
House is - cremorne 41 by Porter Davis with the Arlington Facade
Bricks - Jarrah by Boral in their Horizon range

Mortar - Natural with ironed finish (?)
Roof Tiles - Boral Striata Tiles in Gunmetal
http://www.boral.com.au/Article/Roofing ... _Rooftiles
Gutters, Fascia, Downpipes, Window Frames and Garage Door will all be colorbond Woodland Grey

Front Doors - Corinthian Madison 104 - double doors with translucent glazing. Now first consultant suggested Cedar for the stain and 2nd consultant has suggested Antique Cherry. I would have picked something more like walnut.
We are having the portico, balcony and around the study rendered (the study has the windows to the front, render will be from molding strip down). We had originally planned on having all this in Woodland Grey
Consultant suggested Bringo or Tin Pot as a 2nd render colour to the portico and balcony to give the house some projection. Sounds good to me but now struggling with what colour to use to blend in with the Jarrah and all that Woodland Grey! The render colour is the only brochure I don't have......
What would you suggest?
The photo shown is the house we saw and liked......both of us!
Oh and our fencing will be colorbond Grey Ridge - this is provided by our Estate.
Thanks so much.

Is that a Clifton facade with side balcony?
It looks nice!!
I have been wondering where some finished Cremornes with Clifton facades are so I can go check out their exterior colours!

Bringo or Tin Pot………..
Any Idea who’s colours these are????
Wattyl, Dulux, Taubmans????
And where did the colour consultant suggest you put the second colour?
I don’t see a lot room for play with 2 colours that will project your front façade.

Sorry Michelle I have no idea what brand these colours are and can't seem to find it anywhere in my information or on the Net. Our facade is the Arlington and has a portico with balcony above it. Consultant suggested having Woodland Grey around the study windows which are flush to the wall not sticking out like in my posted photo and doing the portico/balcony a different colour to show some projection. Maybe we should just keep it all Woodland Grey and maybe down the track we can paint it ourselves ? I'm thinking that as house is double storey there are alot of bricks so maybe it won't look too bad with all the woodland grey on the front.
Haywgl, the photo is of a Norfolk 34 with similar Clifton facade, the Cremorne replaced the Norfolk plan but look very similar. There is an estate in Ferntree Gully that have about five Norfolk's in it, all different colours and facades.
Thanks for your help! I'm just about over colours and selections, hasn't been as enjoyable or as easy as I hoped it would be even with the 3 hour colour appt we had with an interior decorator/designer........we were not on the same page...........

tdn……thanks for posting your façade, I was looking at the wrong one!
Now I can see were you can put the second colour.
I’ve had a look, and can’t find her colours anywhere!!!
So heres my suggestion.
Portico – “Woodland Grey”
Front wall jutting out – “Dulux Dune”
Back wall above portico – “Dulux Dune.
Dune will give you a subtle contrast and help the Woodland Grey to be more obvious on the front.
You now have the front of your house in a neutral colour, making your Woodland Grey the dominate colour, blending with your roof tiles!
Should look good…..very much the colour in the photos of the façade you posted.

Thank you Michelle for your help and advice. I will try and find a sample of Dune at Bunnings or ring PD and see where I can find it apart from their showroom which is a quite a drive for me.

Thank you for the link! Not what I imagined the colour to to look like - thought maybe more like Sandbank above it. Dune as in sand....... But I like it.
