Yes… I know that I am a bit premature worrying about the exterior color of my new house but I have been thinking about it for 4 months now and I still haven’t come up with a plan. So I’m guessing it is good that I started early. I know that long before the paint comes the tile roof…and I have to know what the paint is going to be so that they will work together….
Sometimes I feel like building a house is like doing a very large Rubics cube. One thing affects another which affects another.
This was my old house…
We called it “Dianne Tan” because I couldn’t find a tan shade, out of the hundreds and hundreds of them out there, that I liked. Many of them had a pink glow to them…some turned white in full sun…some were too dark in the shade.
What I did love. is the way the white trim popped with it.
This is my house that we are about to tear down…very soon.
We painted it yellow when we bought it 7 years ago. It use to be this color…
A really dirty tan…so I am having a hard time imagining putting up a new house and painting it tan…I really don’t want to be reminded of this place.
As we have been demolishing the house we also found that the house was this lovely tourquise at one time. I can’t imagine what the homeowners were thinking…or for that matter …what the neighbors thought.
And apparentlly army green was once a good idea to them too…
I loved this green house until I found that army green paint. Look how nice the white pops.
But….I think I want a blue front door and that wouldn’t go with the green.
I love the feel of this house….I wish I knew what color they used…Sometimes when I look at it, it looks tan and other times it seems to have a bit of grey to it… yet it doesn’t seem too dark. Remember this is a beach house…not a mountain home. Please send me any paint suggestions you’ve got. At some point I am going to have to come up with an answer…Oh and remember…the porches will have stained wood ceilings.
