My house is tan with brown trim. I don't want a tan house with brown trim any more. It's so boring to me now. I DID want a tan house with brown trim back in 1981 when we put an addition on our house and aluminum sided the whole thing.....but not any more.
Sadly, it isn't a matter of buying some paint. Aluminum siding takes a little more work. You have to wash it by hand, prime it with a special mix of paint and paint thinner and then paint it with an expensive latex....and that is why my house will probably remain tan with brown trim!
Whenever I am out walking, I always look at the colors of the houses. I love little yellow houses with white trim. Those really catch my eye. I am still drawn to neutral color houses, but the color of the trim is what really makes it an attention grabber for me. I've seen some great combinations.
When I e-mailed Irv to ask him how long our house has been tan with brown trim....all he wanted to know was "Why"? I make him nervous when I ask questions like that.
How about you? What color is your castle? Do you ever wish it was a different color?
