But what color should the house be?
My second favorite color scheme is being sported by the house on the other side of us. They also have siding so once again, I'm thwarted. What to do? What to do?
I visited California Paints and Benjamin Moore and tried different colors on my house and I have some inspiration to go with an olive green (similar to next-door but not exact) with white trim and a reddish-brown shutter color. I like the idea of white trim because then I can do a white front porch. Our front porch now is painted dark brown with cream trim that matches the body of the house.
