To help us decide on colors for the house, I scanned a photo into PhotoShop, turned it into a sketch and printed several copies on plain paper. I then got out my art markers and began to color. This is the combo we decided on. The siding will be a very pale/creamy yellow. The major trim will all be bright white. The porch floor and stair treads will be a sage green and some accent trim will be a cranberry color.
We will be removing the ugly silver storm windows that were covering the windows. They are vinyl/aluminum replacement windows that are very dark brown. We want that to show to create contrast. The silver storm door is being replaced with a full view glass door that will allow our original wooden front door to show. The dormer windows will be new windows in brown also with the grills to give the look of the divided panes that we think were once there.
We are thinking about painting the upper part of the brick supports white. We are unsure about the lower part of them and what we want to do with the porch skirting.
