Outside Story x

This summer it will be fourteen years since the outside of house was painted.  I know the date exactly because it was the year we got Molly the dog.  Which means everythings getting a bit old.  But at least the outside can be re-painted..although I’d prefer not to paint it white..at one point I thought a beige putty colour would be the way to go..but finding the right putty colour has proved very hard as so many have too much green in their base.  Now I’m thinking it’s the chance of a lifetime to go rad, be bad..and go dark..

Particularly when you see photos like this: It’s hard to standout against such beautiful period houses but this modern number effortlessly makes its mark.

Ours is a Victorian redbrick house not dissimilar to this one.  Whilst the colours compliment, on a personal level I think an off-black would work better…

Maybe more like this. But is that just opting out??

I think I might takes some pictures of our facade and start colouring in…there must be some technology out there now to help make the decision? Watch this space.
