I mentioned in my last post that I would show you a few homes in my subdivision that stood out from the rest of the homes that have been painted recently. I added in a few other homes whose color choices are not bold and that I could probably work with for my own.
There is always a house on a street that help you guide a visitor to your house and this is mine "The Orange house" on the left! Every time I invite someone to my home (who has never visited) I say "once you pass the orange house on the left mine is....". I love this house even if I can't figure out how they choose their Christmas decor! I guess they will always have Halloween right?!
Then there is this house, the "Periwinkle house". This is how I incorporate this house into my directions: "If you see the Bright blue house on the left, then you have gone too far"! When I saw the "painter guy" painting this house I was like WHAT WERE THEY THINKING?!
So when I was telling him colors I was thinking about using for my house I mentioned blue, but not like that blue house. He told me that they are from Jamaica and that it reminds them of home so now I understand why they made such a bold color choice.
This house belong to my neighbors. They recently had it painted and once I saw it I was like WHAT? THAT'S IT? But I found out they will be moving soon and they wanted something that wouldn't scare buyers away. My thoughts are as long as it's not orange or periwinkle then it is okay! I would have like a little more color, but hey maybe our house can be the house for that!
This is my favorite (color wise that is) house on my street. It's a sage green with cream trim. It looks so clean and soothing to the eye.
Here are a few other homes in my neighborhood that aren't too shabby in color
So what do you think? If you were getting your house painted TOMORROW what colors would you choose?
