I've been on the fence about how I feel about the house color and I decided to try putting some of my inspiration photos next to the finished house to prove to myself that I chose the right color, or should I say the color I was going for. The collage below shows the two houses that I was most trying to copy and our actual house in the middle.
I don't think I'm too far far off. I'm slightly more green which is funny because I almost went one step greener. It's almost like our house is missing something (landscaping, obviously). And although I have a pretty cool historic looking screened door and a porch swing you can't see in this photo, I still think it needs something. I was thinking about a flower box on the left side. Also I don't have any of my porch stuff on the porch because someone still has to paint the porch floor. Also the camellia is in a sad state and even my liriope is like, "Isn't winter over yet?"
But this makes me feel a little better about the color. Maybe I'm just in the wrong season to get the full effect. Ah, if I went just slightly bluer.
