From Patrick Sinclair:
"I have been told this house in Georgian Colonial. I want to get it painted other than white and want to know my options/colors to stay within historical context. I have done some research and found it looks like a mix of Georgian Revival, Colonial, and Federal. Although I don't know which one fits best. Any insight on colors and styles would be appreciated."
