I mean, not to put pressure on myself or anything.
But we close on our house next Tuesday (YAY!!) and I need to find a paint color.
Some things to think about.
- The house was built in 1895 and is Victorian style, with trim, woodwork, and wrap around porches.
- The house is currently painted the lovely hues of seafoam green, mint green and pink. Yes, you heard that correct.
- My husband is probably not too thrilled on living in a house that looks like the tears of a sad clown, and neither am I.
- Painting a house takes considerable time and expense, and will likely not be completed again, even if we hate the color we pick. We will be living with it for
thousands of dollarsthousands of years.
So, I guess I am a feeling a little bit of pressure.
Oh yeah, I am also needing to pick interior colors. For every room. See above tears of a clown colors and apply that to the inside.
Sigh. (insert whiny voice). Finding paint colors is hard!
So, I have been scouring Pinterest, books, magazines, blogs, websites, and casing the historic neighborhood to see some sort of concoction of hues that might work for us. I think I have settled on a color palette for the exterior. What do you think about these options?
I think this might be my first choice. Taupe, white and accents of red. I mean, its no seafoam green and pink, but it might be a little more our speed.
Although I do really like Grey.
Light grey is nice too....
But I keep going back to the taupe and red, though.
Hm..I am not sure. We could do grey and red, too.
At least I have a reason to spend all this time on Pinterest.
In the name of research, right?
I welcome all opinions and thoughts. I will share the final result whenever I make up my mind. :)
