ext paint -- waffling bet. Agave and Chestertown Buff

Posted by livinginniles (My Page) on

This is an exterior paint question -- I want my little house to "pop" after being painted plain white for the past 15 yrs. I've painted big swatches of BM Agave and BM Chestertown Buff on the house. Does anyone out there have experience with these as an exterior color? I like them both a lot, but the green (Agave) is pretty "out there".

My first love is the Agave (avocado green), but will my house look like Kermit lives there? Chestertown Buff is gorgeous, but doesn't evoke the same emotional response in me as the green does. With either color, the trim will be off white/cream.

I will deeply appreciate input on putting rich, saturated colors on a home's exterior.

Thank you ~

I say go with the Agave, it looks a lot more interesting than the chestertown buff. Annnnd, you said yourself that it evokes emotion in you!
