Exterior paint help!
Oh, could somebody please help a girl out?! I'm so, so bad with paint colors. I have yet to paint a room a color that I'm happy with....it has always gotten repainted within a year. And now I'm faced with the decision about our exterior paint color for our house built in 1925. This is definitely going to be a one time shot - my husband will not want to repaint the outside of our home again next summer!
We had picked out a slate gray/blue for the siding, but our direct neighbor beat us to it and just had their house painted the exact shade we were hoping for. Yellow, baby blue, and teal/green are the neighbors' house colors that surround ours. A new roof and gutters will be put on in the next month as well, so we are not stuck with the current roof color. Concrete stairs and railings will be replaced with something more appealing at some point, but probably not this year.
My husband is bored with the current tan/gray and would like something more "interesting." My 3 year old would like it to be red like Lightening McQueen. If that helps you at all.... ;-)
So, if this were your house, what would you paint it? Many thanks for your help!
