So I just received an email from the husband asking whether I would like to change the color of our house exterior because the painter needs to know by Monday! (Insert panic, hand wringing, dizziness, and an emergency trip to the Home Depot paint chip area here) We’ve been waiting to paint forever and getting pushed back in the schedule due to rain and other delays, and therefore hadn’t even given it proper thought until, well, about ten minutes ago! I’ve been dreaming of painting the house for ages, but now faced with a two day window suddenly I cannot think of any colors whatsoever. I need your help dear friends (really, otherwise I may pull out my 120 piece set of Prismacolor pencils for inspiration)!
If you could paint the exterior of your home any color, what would it be? And if, just as an example, your home had a white entry way, white window frames, and a black door, and was in a historic district what color would you choose? (haha, heeeeeeelp!)
Update: Thank you SO much for all of your thoughtful suggestions! There were a lot of votes for grays and blues, (and when my sweet friends speak, I listen) so after many, many paint chips we have chosen a grayish-blue (or perhaps it is a blueish-gray), Benjamin Moore November Skies! I am so excited for the work to begin, I think our house is going to look much more chic after the makeover, and I will definitely post photos.
