Fiddlin’ February – 2018

Tell It Color has been a lot of fun.  I’ve learned some things about colors and how they make me feel. 

Today’s final prompt is the colors of home.  For the longest time this was the color of home to me:

Of course when we first moved in 21 years ago the paint was a little fresher and there were not as many worn spots.  We always told people to look for the mint chocolate chip colored house when we were describing it.  
Last year we redid the outside and the roof and now it looks like this:
I am happy that we have a new roof and siding but truthfully I’m not a fan of the color, or lack thereof.  
This is what I want:
or this:

I suppose that’s going a little too far so maybe I’ll just have to get some of these:

to put in pots.  I’ll get the ones from Michaels that are not real so I don’t have to worry about doing yard work, of which I am not a fan.  Do you think that would work to brighten things up a bit?  
Of course I could paint butterflies all over the house:
but that kind of defeats the purpose of putting up siding that needs no upkeep.  Guess the flowers in pots will have to do.  
What about you?  Love the color of your house?  Could you live across the street from a house painted like that?  Tell me!

    I love my yellow house, but I hate the brown trim. One day. Those ‘one day’ moments always come šŸ™‚ I’m feeling more terracotta, one day.
    I could NOT live across the street from that colorful stuff, because of my picture window. It’d really distract from my trees and critters. But next door would be alright! lol

      Yeah, next door. Of course I wouldn’t really want to be close enough to the casino for it to interfere with me either. We have the train tracks between us so it’s not so bad.


  2. Ours is a moving house with browns, maroons, deep yellows–sort of ombre. I’m a live and let live kind of person–the house with the butterflies wouldn’t bother me too much, but I’m sure they’d still get grief from the neighbors! šŸ™‚

  3. Janet,

    Our house is in need of painting badly. I think I’d keep the same color, a cool gray with white trim. It may be rather boring to some but it fits the style with the brick front. I hope our next home has little to no exterior wood to have to worry about painting or rotting. I think homes that are painted anything other than conservative are a fun find but I don’t know if I’d like to live in one. I don’t think it would both me how my neighbors choose to paint their house but then again I don’t how I’d actually felt if it did happen. I hope I’d have an open mind to their choice. By the way, this reminds me of a house in rural WV painted pink. No other homes were painted like this one and I always found it interesting whenever passing it. I had no clue growing up that people in certain parts of the country adopted colorful exterior colors and I suppose this family was exposed to it somewhere. šŸ™‚

      That’s why we went with siding this time too. No need to paint or do anything other than power wash for 50 years (so said the contractor). By that time it’ll be our kid’s worry. We had really let our poor house go, having lived in it for 20 years without doing anything other than emergency repairs.


  4. Ours has a pale blue wash. We didn’t like it at first, but now are quite happy with it
