help

Picking exterior colors for a home seems trivial giving what is going on around us and I honestly am only sharing these things because it's nice to focus on something else right now. But if you enjoy this type of thing I need your help.


I've never picked exterior colors before that were different than what currently existed. I don't hate the color combo on our home but we want to do something different. So here are a few ideas we have pulled...


I like this color - and if you know me I like this color a lot - so much so that I sometimes wonder if my family is sick of it. I also love the bright white trim - it really pops against this color.


I fell in love with this dark, navy, little bungalow with the white trim and light gray used on the window sashes. What do you think?


Here is another lighter color - a light, sea foam color and I love that front door. Doug isn't a big fan of this one, though.


And here is another navy - seeing a theme? We actually love that the trim and sashes are a bright white and really pop. It's not traditionally what is done on a 1920's craftsman (usually its a three color combo with the window sashes being a different color than the trim)


I love this pink door - could be fun against the navy but Doug vetoed.


He loves this combo with the navy siding, white trim and red door.


and I love this color red - the one above is a little too orange for me.


So what do you think? Dark Navy or green/light sea foam color? Do we go off tradition and paint those fantastic window sashes the same white as the trim? And what do you think about the door color?
