My little house needs paint
I'm fairly new to this forum, but not new to GW. I spend most of my time lurking everywhere from the house forums to the gardening side. We bought our little home about 2.5 years ago and we are just getting around to doing some exterior updating. The long range plan is to hopefully bump up the roof to make this little ranch into a cape with dormers, but since we bought at the height of the market, we won't be investing a lot of money for a while. I've convince DH to help me paint the exterior over the upcoming holiday weekend. I've been playing on the BM and SW paint sites with their color viewers but I'm having a hard time finding combinations that work well on a small home. I guess we want it to blend into the surroundings, as opposed to stand out. There is a little cape not far from us that has blue siding, cream trim, red shutters and door, and we like that, but I just don't think it will look good on our house.
I've been playing with tan shades for the siding, with cream trim color and reds and black shutters. I kind of like them but I just don't know on this little house.
I've attached a link to a pic of the house. I hope this works.
Thanks for any ideas and suggestions you may have!
