Last night, Matt and I talked about house colors that we liked. We have to paint the outside or the new house eventually and I found a website that you can pick a house that looks similar in style to yours and then pick out colors and then have fun playing with it.
We like something similar to this, but is it too dark? Or something more like these. I really want a red front door...can you tell?
This is Brinley's choice...Barbie anyone?

what a cool way to pick a house color...you could paint your house the same as mine with a red door. It would look cute. It is a greenish grey. Actually on our "the replacement" post there is my house in the background. SO EXCITING!

I probably would pick the top one, but I like green too. The pink one is FABULOUS and Abby would be ready to move right in. Fun to be able to do such "grown up things!"

I am pretty sure that we are going with the gray one.

The middle one actually was a brownish yellow color and now looks more like baby poop, the more I look at it. That color is off the table.

I love the gray....maybe just a little lighter version?

Karlene said...

Love the green one. How fun! What website did you use?

julie said...

cody says he likes the pink one for you and he said you could just paint matts room in the house green.

Arah said...

Karlene,
the website is paintquality.com
I am sure there are more out there, but this was the first free one i came across.

I like the gray one, but I think it's a little dark, maybe a lighter gray perhaps?

Or it just might be my computer screen.

Give me a picture of the house, I can always photoshop it to get it the color you want (photoshop is so awesome, and I will keep swearing by it)

I'm not worried about it Kami, it's not the exact color we want anyway, it's just the options the website gave us. It just gives us an idea for a house color.

LOVE the red door. I want one too if we ever buy a house of our own. The gray is my favorite too...

fun website

I like the first and 3rd ones the best. We can't wait to come to Spokane and see your new house! Congratulations!

I like the grey, especially if you went a little lighter but with black shutters. HOWEVER, I think the green that's got a touch of a gray in it is really fun. It looks awesome with the red door. My only concern is that in 5 years, would it be considered a fad of the past? Go with the gray or green...either way, I don't think you can lose! And stick with the red door--too cute!

When I lived in AZ, I knew an older couple who inherited his sister's house after her death. HE painted it pink. It became a landmark. Everyone in town from then on referred to as The Pink House. I'm with Brinley!! :)

Wendy said...

Yeh I like Debbie's comment. Maybe you should just make a statement with the pink. I'll have to check that website out cause we're looking to paint our house also. Congratulations on the house. That's so exciting! We bought our house last March and I just love having my own place.

I love the green and Red. Two of my favorite colors. Kaitlyn loves the pink of course.

The Barney's said...

I am so excited for you. can't wait for us to be back in our own home. It will probably be next this next winter. Good luck!! Love lori
