Best Colors to use with a Black Roof

Overlooking your roof isn’t hard to do. While it’s a huge part of the exterior of your home, it’s rarely discussed when it comes to completing your home décor. If you have a black roof, try some of the following in your siding, trim, door or outdoor accessories.

Deserted Beach

Our most neutral option for roof-conscious design, Deserted Beach is a safe, smart choice for the outside of your home. Paired with dark brown or even white accents, Deserted Beach is best as a siding color, as it allows your roof and accessories to pop. It can, however, also be used as an accent itself, placing other neutral siding colors into additional design context. Sure to please in a number of different palettes, try this color for a quick, reliable updated exterior.

This stand-out yet delicate mauve is bold, but not without purpose. Old Mission Pink should be used by only the most adventurous and daring decorators. As a trim color, it can accent white or neutral gray exteriors. As a siding color, it can set the tone for a San Francisco-style home. With this pink, you can truly take your exterior into your own hands, pushing roof and décor coordination to a dramatic level.
