I am somewhat obsessed with green now.
You may recall my Pinspiration greens from Sherwin-Williams.
I recently blogged about painting our upstairs bath sage green.
We chose Unusual Gray (at the bottom) for the walls,
with a ceiling of 50% Contented (second from top).
Our bathroom, very much in its “during” stage:
My green obsession has me plotting to use a lot of sage green upstairs,
so stay tuned for that.
Meanwhile, I now have just a wee bit of color remorse
re: the exterior siding of our Dutch colonial.
How’s that possible? I’m asking myself,
when I truly love the white + gray + black scheme that’s out there now?
I was perusing some older blog posts the other day,
when I came across some siding choices from 5 years ago.
As one does, I’d placed some color samples on the house
for what I call “the admire”,
which is what I do when I am trying to decide ANY-thing.
Notice that there are 2 gray siding samples at left + 1 green sample at right.
Even 5 years before my green obsession developed,
I was seriously considering green siding!
Too late now, of course, but for fun, here’s a close up of the green:
I forget the name of the siding company, but we bought it from Menards.
Shall we look at some green houses + wonder “what if”?
Check out the stunning details on this next beautiful home!
The Adirondack chair + container of blue hydrangeas are so “me”!
And, saving the best for last, this cottage charmer.
Looks like they used the same colors as we did in our bathroom!
Extra points for painting the front door + the window sashes
with the same (beautiful) darker color!
Disclaimer: I would totally fall on those steps!
I still love our white house with the gray gables, though.
I think it’s timeless, + the white first story + contrasting color second story
is definitely a “thing” when it comes to Dutch colonials.
