Fence color to show off plantings

Darrell72223(7a)February 18, 2014

Hi. I just replaced my old privacy fence with a new cedar one. It's one week old. I'm trying to decide what color to stain it. Left natural, it's a little light to my liking. My goal is that the color coordinate with the house but also shows off my flower beds well. I will have a few climbing roses on sections of the fence, too. What colors do you think show off plants best? I really want the fence to "disappear" particularly when viewed in the back yard.

The house is brick and siding, in brown and green tones. I'm steering away from the red tones (particularly redwood).

Penny for your thoughts on this.

I would consider something in the taupe/grey line. Examples:
