Happy Tuesday! So yes, I took pictures over the weekend, but that´s for later. Right now, I need your advice. Lately all I can think of is color. Walls, floors, furniture. I am trying to come up with a color scheme for the house and it´s hard. I don´t want it to be too colorful this time around but I also don´t want it to be bland. That´s only inside, and then there´s also the exterior which is almost as difficult.
Above is what it looks like now. Remember I painted the door a blueish grey recently.
This is what it used to look like. Also in this picture you see that on the left, we have this giant gate (is that the right English word?) which used to be painted brown and needs some love urgently. Same goes for the gable of the house (again not sure whether this is the right term). Come spring we plan to have the gable painted (there are limits to DIY) and I am going to tackle the gate.
Now, what color to paint the door/gateway/gable? In my opinion, there are two options:
1) Leave the door as it is and paint the gable and gateway white to match the windows and entryway area. I just wonder whether it will look too cutesy and a white gable is not really typical for the area...
All I know is that I don´t want to go back to brown, even if it would match the roof. And I don´t think a strong color would go well here. Opinions? Help!
