Goodbye June! Hello July!
We've been spending a lot of time outside since the days are longer and evenings are so nice. The downside is that our ugly, dirty-white, exterior paint keeps staring me in the face. I want to punch it! We have a long way to go before we have the money saved to paint our house, but a girl can still dream, right?
We have gone back and forth about painting the house in a more historically-accurate color scheme, but they all seem too pastel, brown and dull.
I came across this collection of blue historic homes and am more inspired to select a fresh, modern color scheme. I think a deep navy/teal would look really good with white trim and maybe gray shutters? I'd even like to do a pop of yellow or lime on the front door. Too wild for our geriatric home? Here are a few of my favorites:
One thing is for sure, it is going to cost A LOT to paint our house so we don't want to choose wrong. Leave me a note if you want to weigh in on this decision.
