I was absolutely dreading painting the house, mainly because I couldn't figure out what colors we should go with. Our roof is an odd terracotta orange brown color so I figured we'd end up painting it white, which is just kinda...meh. I was also dreading the task because I figured it would drag on all summer.
But then, a few days ago, I came across this beautiful image via Houzz that inspired me in terms of paint colors.
Isn't that gorgeous? Our house is a Plain Jane ranch, but I think we could steal the color combo.
I also love this front door. Ours would look great like this; I'd need to strip off the paint first, but it's do-able!
Hiring someone to paint is a big purchase for us. It's a big deal, and I want to make sure we get it right so I'm debating a little on exactly which shade of gray to go with. Here are a few images of our exterior. Oh boy, our house needs some some curb appeal in a bad way! I'm a little embarrassed by the current state, but we are moving in the direction and in a few weeks it will look lovely. Fingers crossed.
Here are the colors I'm considering:
Left of window: Sherwin Williams, Gray Clouds
Right of Window: Sherwin Williams, Silver Spoon
Under Window: Sherwin Williams, TinsmithThe colors are all very similar and I'm sure any of them would look fine; but I'm leaning towards Tinsmith because I think it would look the most like the Vermont Farmhouse. Jesse likes the darker Gray Clouds color. What do you think?
