Colors!

I know I am getting ahead of myself with all the interior work that needs to be done, but I can’t help thinking about house exterior colors. What color are we going to paint this house! Go bold? Stay very traditional? Not sure.

Of course, everyone has their own opinion… which makes things harder.

Found this chart of traditional colors from the Victorian period when this house was built? Would one of these work? Can they still mix these colors?

I also found some examples of color combinations I like. I’m inclined to go a little bold right now. The blue with cream and light green trim is “speaking to me.” This could all change. 🙂 Stay tuned…

  1. Blue houses are awesome! Ours here is blue with white trim as I had always wanted a blue house (it was pale yellow when I bought it…as were the walls in every single room, hmph!). And Dan is up for us painting the new house the exact same blue with white (except we have to replace all the windows in our house, all 20 of them, so I’m going to splurge and get black windows as I love the contrast). I like both the red and blue houses in your pictures, but my advice is always pick your favorite color as you always love coming home and seeing your favorite color 😁😁

  2. The blue is lovely. My grandparents home was similar style and her favourite colour was green so my grandfather had it painted green with white wrap around porch, it is still that colour today. Enjoy.
