Here's what it looks like right now. I've never been a fan of these colors. In fact, I'm afraid I may have mentioned the word "ugly" when we first looked at the house.
Here are some alternative looks I came up with by following this Photoshop tutorial. What do you think? What color would you paint your house? Any other colors I should try? I would really appreciate your input. We have an estimator coming tomorrow!
|Acceptable, but not exciting.|
|My favorite so far; not what I expected I would like! Sherwin-Williams says, "A large home on a small lot painted white or a light color - for instance, a tinted neutral - can make the house seem larger and the lot seem smaller. Dark colors can make a home look smaller but more substantial." I like that; our front yard is small and our house is fairly close to the neighboring ones.|
|One of my original ideas. I'm glad to see it on the house; I don't like it with the stone trim. Also another house nearby was just painted like this, so I guess it would be better not to copy.|
|Dark blue and blue-grey. I'll give this one a maybe.|
|Hmm, still not sure how I feel about this one.|
|There are a few red houses around our neighborhood and it seems to be an easy shade to get wrong, so I don't think I'd be brave enough to try it in real life.|
