"I just bought a 1930 Dutch Colonial. I'm feeling limited on color options because of the roof color. I really don't want a white house. I would have liked to go with a medium blue, but my next door neighbor's house is blue. So, now I'm thinking either medium green with creamy yellow accents or a creamy yellow house with darker green accents. Thoughts? (I'm ignoring the 'deferred maintenance' aspects of the yard until Spring!)"
