Design Trends and Versatility

To those who yearn for the luxury of French style but don’t know where to start, c’est la vie, but it doesn’t have to be! We always recommend starting big and then working on the finer details of your exterior design. Take a peek at this inspiration board for ideas on how you can transform your abode to a mesmerizing European dwelling.

To create that gorgeous Parisian feel, we recommend crowning your structure in an Amethyst Blend roofscape in our Tapered Slate profile. Its raw, chamfered edges and rugged appearance allows Tapered Slate to provide the perfect illusion of a natural slate roof without the hefty weight and cost. Elegant and organic, the purples, tans and grays found in the roof tile plays well with not only vintage design trends but also an earthy palette with contemporary pastels reminiscent of French Modern and French Country compositions.

Pair Amethyst Blend with luxurious exterior accents that you would find in French Gothic architecture, such as exquisite sculptures, wrought-iron balconies or ornate window framings with decorated stone or moulding to command the attention of onlookers. For a touch of French Provincial opulence, swap out your garage door for a custom wood one and outline it with neutral rock accents for a classic and timeless feel. In addition, sprinkle in small gold and black accents in the form of light fixtures, hardware, planters and even lanai furniture for an affluential feel so commonly experienced in Europe.

Color Exploration

You’ve gotten your vision down with the larger details, so now it’s time to dive into paint colors. We’ve devised two vastly different palettes truly inspired by French culture. Ever popular neutrals with dashes of pastels are rampant across Paris, as well as the French countryside and riviera. No matter your style, there’s a scheme here for everyone.

You can’t go wrong with whites, grays, beiges and taupes; timeless neutrals mirroring the gorgeous historical buildings in France. When paired with Amethyst Blend, colors such as these will provide subtle contrast and visual balance, allowing the hues in this gorgeous roofscape to pop. For instance, consider Behr’s 1850 Ultra Pure White to cascade your structure with a classic, clean hue for a fashionable feel. Then trim your abode with MQ2-37 Eiffel For You, an inviting yet moody shadow that draws out the sultry tones of the roof tile. Finally, adorn accents such as garage doors, sconces and front entryways in N200-4 Rustic Taupe to complement the warmth of the overall scheme or incorporate a cold gray, such as N460-3 Lunar Surface for a harmonious exterior.

To go the extra mile, consider adding iron accents in the form of lighting or railings as seen in the inspiration photo. Whether as a structural or cosmetic detail, it will surely add some archival flair to an otherwise muted colorway similar to that seen through the streets of Paris.

To liven up the neutral scheme above, you can incorporate touches of pastels in your exterior reminiscent of the lavender fields in Provence or a colorful plate of sweet French macarons. Draw out the different purples in Amethyst Blend with Behr’s 650B-4 Elite Wisteria. A vibrant violet tint, you can utilize the paint chip to beautify your landscape in lush annual and perennial blooms of that same hue. If you love shades of green and blue like those adorning historical structures, then PPU11-12 Mild Mint and MQ5-59 Ovation are the way to go for veranda furniture or even as a pop of pigment on flower pots. Lastly, if the pink skies at sunset over the Eiffel Tower evoke peace and serenity within you, we recommend M130-1 Pink Posies on shutters or your front door for a slight tinge of airiness. When paired with such an alluring concrete tile roof, the possibilities for a soothing look incorporating these soft delicate colors are endless.

Say au revoir to drab exteriors with flimsy roofing materials, and instead say bonjour to a stunning concrete tile roof like Amethyst Blend for your next project!
