color and stone

I was brain storming ideas this weekend as we drove to upstate NY for a mini-vacation. As a passenger I got to check out all the local Catskill and Adirondack architecture. I *love* the Adirondack style. My goal is some sort of Craftsman-Prairie-Adirondack mix.

I decided that I definitely want stacked stone footings included in the design of the front portico.

I am so in love with this home...

Gorgeous - but 'too much' for our plan:

I love this color combination... I couldn't grab the good photo that shows better that the lower half of the house is painted red. I'm also picturing a very deep, dark red - combined with naturally stained shingles, and either the bronze or dark green framed windows.
