Selecting a House Color

We have a colorful neighborhood.  My house is blue, and just next to me is a green house.  On the other side of the green house is one that is barn red.  My other next door neighbor is going to paint her house and she's selected a yellow ochre color.  She is from Sicily and she wants to give her home an Italian villa look.   Here are a few colorful views around my neighborhood.







Shades of blue


and yellow 



and purple,


beige and even orange!  Shades of green and brown are really popular too. 


One of the houses near me just sold and I'm really excited.  The new owner to be said he's thinking of painted his house a dark purple with gray and white trim.  It sounded luscious to me.  

My first blog stop in the morning is typically Marie Arden Pink Living  and it started me thinking.  The one color missing from our neighborhood color palette is




PINK!!!

  3. Hi Cheryl,

    It has been too long since I've visited your blog. I hope you are doing good and haven't stressed too much over paint color.

    We are going through the same process right now. It shouldn't have to be this hard.

  4. Pink? - well it depends on the shade.......
    I love a colourful neighbourhood and the wood on our stone house is painted raspberry and taupe - just the thing in a place that has rain all winter long.
    Yes, I know mamoul - my mother still makes it and baklava for special occasions - yummy!

  11. I think the best move when new in a neighborhood is to get input from your neighbors across the street. They're the one who will actually be living with it on a daily basis!

  13. I like your neighborhood. It has a joyful look about it. I am curious to know if the homes are older and lovingly cared for or newer in old styles.

    Best,
