More thoughts on Exterior Paint Color

Wednesday, February 24, 2016

Hi Everyone! A while back when we were just in the process of buying our house, I wrote a post about possible exterior paint color choices.  Well, can you believe spring is right around the corner and it's time to think paint? In all actuality given the scope creep of other projects and additional things we want to accomplish around the house this year, we may not get around to paint, but this is one of those things I'm going to have to noodle on for a while and test out with swatches on the exterior, so it's good to keep it top of mind regardless. If you recall, we were thinking something like this:

I still like aspects of the color palette but am returning to the idea of something more neutral like a charcoal with hints of a dark aqua and light mint.  I also am thinking that I should keep the trim light. I love dark window frames but our storms are light and are not really very paintable so they just wouldn't work with a dark window.  Here is where I am at now. I also added in a simple picket fence to get an idea of what it would look like on our property (although we will most likely do something with a more interesting picket top to tie into the architecture of the house)
What do you guys think? Are we a little warmer?
