I confess … it was difficult for me to brush yellow paint across the pink clapboards of my circa 1875 historic home. But the pink was looking faded and I felt a jolt of sunshine was needed. It took months to choose trim colors but we eventually settled on Cottage White, a dark shade of green called Blade, and Candle (some shade of red … not quite sure what you’d call it, exactly). I toyed with lavendar because it’s directly opposite yellow on the color wheel, but another house in town bore this color scheme and I wanted something different.
but I’m a summer season kinda girl and it’s always hard to pull the faded blooms.
the front of the house is overexposed. Oh well. I painted the porch ceiling blue like many historic homes I’ve seen.
because we had a rose garden. We’ve since replaced the roses, having lost the battle to black spot.
