What color should I paint my house?

Vote now: Blue, grey or green?


Jaye Wells said...

I vote for green. The blue seems dated and the grey seems...well grey.

John Elder Robison said...

My first thought was blue but now I agree with Jaye, Green

I like the blue; I like the grey. I don't like the green. I think it's pretty, but in the long run, you might not like it. There is a house near our neighborhood that is BRIGHT, BRIGHT, BRIGHT blue that the people probably originally loved but now it's just a big blue house joke.

Go subtle.

Oops, I don't think Jaye or John will be happy with my thoughts.

Other thing--what is wrong with the white? That would be cheery! And maybe you could do some subtle accents in the other color(s).

Not grey though, don't do grey. That would just be gloom.

I live in a light grey house. It's grey inside and out. If I had a photo I'd mail it. My seashore house is dark grey with crisp white trim. Looks great against the water and marsh.

We're not helping you any, are we?

No white! Almost every house in my neighborhood is some variation of pastel whiteness. BORING!

Also, because it's UPS brown now (bought it that way 12 years ago - not my choice) it would take at least 2 coats to paint it a light color.

Thanks for voting and as we used to say when I lived in Chicago - Vote early and vote often!

White! Oh! That isn't a choice huh!

It's not an option, but I actually think that house would look nice in a light tan... otherwise I'd go with the light gray.

i vote green but then maybe grey or blue how about blue?
Is yellow under consideration?
or black?
Black would be cool -- maybe beige or red.
could you do brick?
What was the question?

Go back to bed Pat. I think you're still suffering from jet lag!
