We have been trying to decide what color to paint the house for about a year now. For a long time I thought we were all set. We were going to have a faux paint job done using three colors and I had the colors selected…done. Until we realized how much it will cost to have the exterior of our house faux painted. We’re at the end of the project and really trying to stop the never ending exodus of cash. So then I started sampling light colors, none of which really did it. Last week I started playing with reds. At this point I would really love some advice. Here’s what the house looks like now. Please try to ignore the massive mounds of dirt.
The peachy color is the old color and the grey where the stucco has been patched. You can see my trial and error of color experimentation with the faux, light colors and reds. A couple of major factors in the color selection is that our house is not very big to begin with so a darker color will make it look smaller and the roof is dark so maybe we need a lighter color on the house itself to balance the dark roof. We need to consider the colors of the chicago brick driveway because it plays a major role in the appearance of the house. So, we know we need some kind of earth tone but are stuck right now. The exterior may become Sherwin Williams Neutral Ground like the interior, unless we come up with something else. Please help!!
