THE COLOR

Bloggy internets! My house color! We're about to choose THE COLOR. Help me, please? Here is the new color choice, which we're thinking we like, but in a toned down version. This (Olivine), or Treehouse. Lookit.


Here it is on the front of the house, what people see when they drive up our little cul-de-sac (our house sits at the top of the hill at the very end of the street).



Here it is (on the left) next to Treehouse, which y'all mostly seemed to like.



And here it is on the back of the house. It's kinda minty, doncha think? Just kinda. I mean, it's pretty and all. But more of an indoor color.
I thought capturing it next to the brick would give us a good idea of what we'd end up with. And I painted several areas of the house with it because we bought a quart. It seems that Home Depot hasn't quite made it into the 21st century and figured out the whole pint o'paint concept.

So help me? I know, I know - I'm beyond help. Shut up. Just with color, I'm not so good. The Hunny, he's good, and he's torn when it comes to the color at the moment. Too close to the whole project. And he'd like to get the back of the house painted this afternoon. Do you HEAR me laughing?

Until I write again ...

I still like the darker one better - this one is kinda minty I think.

I kinda like the lighter green one.

I like the darker color next to it. Was that an option? I'm agreeing with you on the indoor-ishness of it. It's "soft" you know?

I prefer the lighter, but I could go either way really, since it is a bigger house. Not a lot of help, is it? LOL

In the last picture it looks darker. In the top picture it does look a little minty. Or are those not the same colors.

Either way, I think the fact that you have the brick next to it will make it a more muted color and less "pastel" looking!

Have fun kayaking!

olivine, it's almost the same color as my house and I love it!
It doesn't look indoorsey in my humble opinion when outside on a big surface. Whatever you like it's your house!

I'm so glad I don't have to make this decision. This is one time I defer to you...trust me, I used to have a neon yellow kitchen...I picked the paint! ;)

I'm going to keep my mouth shut. For some reason, picking out paint colors always gives me the willies. I have to do simulations in Photoshop before I feel remotely okay.

I also have a hard time picking paint. I'm not sure why since the worst penalty is . . . you know . . . repainting a different color. Thus I'd probably stick with white and get some nice bright red for the door and window sills.

Great color. We have it in our living room and my Dh's office. You'll love it. Very soothing.

Oh Dear Lord! I hate picking out paint colors for my own stuff... the stress of it all!!! But, I like the darker green on your house. The other one is fine too. It's up to YOU! He He He!

The darker one gets my vote.
