Are there any resources on material collections already corralled into an overall theme of colors/textures and materials as opposed to everything in a one by one format?
i.e. roof textures that go along with siding textures that go along with  concrete color/ window frame color/ trim color etc. etc. all in one place?

Hmm, I don't know of any, but I'm not sure these would exist anyway.

The sort of thing you are talking about is generally aimed at retail domestic customers for decorating.

Podium, like pretty much all render engines is aimed at people who have some level of knowledge or design training. 

It's not that your proposed solution wouldn't be useful, I'm not sure anyone has thought of it for this kind of market - you may have identified a niche [smile]

I hear you. I'm simply coming at it from a time saver perspective. Its frustrating trying out different textures and constantly going "doesn't fit, doesn't fit, doesn't fit..."

It's a question of personal taste I guess. What one person thinks will go together, someone else might think doesn't.

You would need someone with a really great eye and a good understanding of design to put these together. I'm certainly not confident enough to [smile]

i definitely hear you on that! To add to your comment, some textures are taken with different lighting applied and therefore don't go with a different texture of opposite type of lighting. its painful sometimes finding workable combinations especially with subtle variations of colors and hues and light intensity and shadows etc.

Interesting! I always save some combinations I liked in my library, wood, and steel, concrete and bricks, etc.

 

Also, use a lot of "mood boards" from Pinterest or google search, look for something you like and go with it.
