How to combine colours with brown Q707 Peikko
The dark brown Q707 Peikko is a reliable classic.
A brown facade can be as modern as a wooden house painted with cold shades.
Keep the colour scale scarce and use only brown on all surfaces of the building from roof to sockel and the modern look is complete. Small details can be enhanced with, for example, the brighter brown D111 Kajakki. Test the shade on window frames or a door, for example. If you want the sockel to be slightly lighter than the colour of the facade or to follow the subdued grey of the concrete surface, it can be painted with Q710 Aapa.
A classic among classics is a brown facade with light details. This is the most traditional and harmonious colour combination for a wooden house in the middle of a Nordic forest. Test the broken white Q800 Pöllö on weatherboards and other details.
