I am not repainting the red roof. So require a colour that will match the red roof and the green colorbond fence. Do I stick with the heritage colours? Based in Western Qld, so its hot alot of the time. Would love some ideas. Thanks.
The current green in the boards works with both the fence and the roof. I’d do a version of that with a clear white for all the trim. Will look fresh but not out of place for its era.
Thank you. So would you do white where all the cream is? What about the doors?

Yes, white to replace all the cream including the doors. For the front door you could pick a favourite colour as a highlight.
I'd ask whether you want to keep it heritage , or go more modern ? Bigreader basically has the 50's vibe covered -- to go more modern I'd go an offwhite with a slight green or even blue tinge on the waeatherboards , then either bright red or a stronger green than the fence , for the trim .
I'd get rid of every bit of the brown , and it looks like some grey on the back steps -- I know all about budgets too , so maybe do all the steps and railings in a metallic look charcoal , or if the budget stretches , maybe go more modern on all the steps and railings and all the doors -- there's a difference between painted old , and retro haha -- $2000 or even $4000 spent cleverly now will really add to the overall effect .
