RE: Soffit Colors? (Follow-Up #1)

I think eggplant might shout too much. Eggplant trim around doors and windows would seem more "normal." What about a caramel or honey type color. I've been seeing alot of that. It looks nice, but I'm not familiar with cedar siding.

NOTES:

Looks like it's going to be a GREAT home! The land is pretty as well. When I say "normal" I mean that when I see homes that are natural with a spunky twist, it's usally in their shutter or window trim choice rather than the soffits. You don't want to draw the eye to the soffit and away from the front of the home. Purple up against the green roof may look Mardi Gras. However, it may look cool. It's hard to say, but I would just want to keep the attention on the home. I really like it!
