Exterior Paint Color to Coordinate with Maroon Iron Roof

I have a house roofed with maroon iron sheets. Which wall color will match with the roof? If possible send me photos with this type of roofing and walls painted in suggested colors.

A warm but muted soft yellow would be very, very pretty. Some folks up the street have theirs painted that way and it looks outstanding from all of the other homes.

A warm tan would look good.

A lighter Yellow would look good. Ask them at Professional Paint stores, cause most likely they would know.

Another good option would be some shade of gray.

I would just sugget a beige or tan. It looks good together as clothes. I wear a Maroon dress shirt and beige pants to church all the time. :)

But in all seriousness if you don't have one borrow a digital camera and take a picture of your house. Load the digital picture into your PC. Use a program like paint shop pro (MS Paint might do the job too) and load the picture. Use the fill tool to change the colors till you have a match you like. Print out the pic and go to your paint retailer and ask them to try to match the color you chose.
