It may have taken over a year, and several material swatches spread out on the floor of the paint store that resulted in conversations that went something like, “Excuse me ma’am, is that a piece of your roof on the floor?” Why yes. Yes it is.
But I finally narrowed the house color down to one of these three options.
I painted some large swatches over the weekend and had them nailed to the house. And I’ve been snapping pictures of them periodically throughout the day to see how I feel about them in different lights.
And I know I’ve been saying for a while that I really think I want to paint the house blue.
I like the the contrast of the dark, and blue is a bold color. But actually…
Now that I look at it, I have to say that with the wood, and the roof, and the trim color…
I think I really like the green the best. Or “sage” actually. It’s not too green, not to gray, and has just enough color to satisfy the rebellious voice inside of me (probably the same one that led to tattoos and facial piercings when I was younger) that no way was I going to live in a house that is beige.
All the while the Engineer has been saying he liked green, and I gave him the squinch-face every time. But maybe I should let him pick out the colors of stuff more often. I’m totally sold on it.
