Choosing an exterior paint colour is a little nerve racking. The exterior is what everyone will see as they pass by your place. It's how you tell the world what the people who live here are like. At the moment the people who live in this house are indecisive. The outside is still pink. Some of the trim is still heritage green, some of the trim is a darker grey. The dark grey is our choice of trim but we are undecided as to the colour of the walls - except for Lulu, who thinks they should be rainbow colour or keep the pink.
Choosing colour for climate
Alice Springs has hot, hot summers, so as much as I like the look of houses with darker colour walls but they would absorb far too much heat. White would be great, but would it discolour too quickly with dusty wind? I think a nice compromise might be a pale grey to offset the dark grey trim. In the meantime here a a few exterior paint colour combinations that I am loving from across the web,
what's your favourite?
