Exterior color scheme help on 1880's Victorian...
I used to post frequently on the Kitchens forum...and then the Old House forum.
Just unearthed our 1880's Victorian out from under 1952 aluminum siding. It is filthy and in need of a good paint job, but otherwise in pretty good shape, considering it's age.
We know it was dark green and white in the 1940's as per this (albeit) B & W photo. This is my husband's granfather's old house so we can vouch back that far at least.
We were just going to copy this color scheme...but then I got to thinking this *might* not have been the original color scheme. And if it was, there might have been more areas with green than in the old photo.
If you had this house and needed to include dark green and white, what would you do? Would all the trim be green? What about the scalloping? Would you add a third color?
Any help or suggestions welcome!
