Come on Over to my House


Welcome to my little California Craftsman. As you may or may not notice -I need help. I'm not too crazy about the curb appeal. First of all I need color! The house color is a muted army green, white trim and navy blue edging around the windows. The garden is a bit of a mess with no color. Right now there are boxwoods under the living room window, white myrtle (?) topiary surrounded by a red mulch circle. Any ideas??

My house is a four-room board-and-batten cottage. It's painted yellow, with sky-blue shutters and hot pink window boxes and front door. It sounds totally crazy but works very well. I was aiming for a 1940's cream and green look but obviously overshot. I had the help of two artists in my colour selection. I have come out of my house twice and found someone taking pictures. One gentleman said he loved the "Caribbean vibe," something I'd never thought of. It's also got a Victorian painted lady cottage thing going. It took some courage to do but now we love it. Your house is totally adorable, by the way. Enjoy your colour selection process.

Thanks for all the comments! Well I've put in some roses and they seem to be doing well -as for the picket fence it looks like I can't do that because of the city. (But, I love the idea)
Sherry -so funny I've been thinking of painting those colors for awhile now too. -Something bright and cheery. Though I think I may do the yellow, scarlet trim and ivory (and or aubergine)
