    • Our Long Beach, CA MCM Remodel ? Paint choices!, Hello Everyone! We bought a mid-century modern home last year and are about to remodel the exterior. We would like to make it a more contemporary remodel and are in the process of getting a smooth stucco finish. We want to replace the block wall on the front of the house with horizontal ipe wood planks and knock down the block wall over the right of the house and replace with a shorter 4' horizontal ipe fence. Struggling with paint choices and wondering what everyone's opinions are. We covered the fireplace with travertine and i'm afraid maybe i went a little too creamy on it? We also have a brown roof if that makes any difference. What do you all think?!? Thanks in advance!, Home Exterior Design
