Anyway, I couldn't stand the orangey-brown colour, especially with yellow trim. In 2006 we painted the house blue (actually, my Dad did.) I know, I know, neutral beiges are currently trendy and much more sophisticated looking, but in a city that looks brown for most of the year, I need colour wherever possible!
I can't quite decide, so I am asking for opinions. Here is what I am currently thinking though:
I love the funky chartreuse trim in the top photos, but am thinking it's too impractical. In a couple of years, we want to start replacing all the windows and will probably go with low-maintenance vinyl frames on the outside. Therefore, the trim needs to be a fairly standard colour. (and by the way, I'm not up to painting the eavestroughs right now so they will stay brown)
While not as bright, I also like the light blue-ish/teal-ish/grey-ish trim. Now what do you think about a door colour?
[Update: Elli, one of the artists in my family, says green trim. She would pick the less practical one...!]
