My House:

I would call this a Craftsman style foursquare, but I'm not sure. The house was built in 1922.

My Project:

The house is white stucco with a lot of teal blue trim. There are awnings for the house in a salmon/blue stripe, but they rob the interior of the house of so much light we don't use them any more - although the exterior does need some type of detail like awnings, especially the side facing the street. The roof is green and needs to be replaced.

We plan to paint the entire house this summer including the trim. I am thinking there is too much blue. I would be willing to go with an entirely different color pallet. What do you think?


  • What color/s would you suggest for the house, the trim and the roof?
  • Our next-door neighbor has a green house with red trim.
  • Other neighbors are lucky with brick homes - no decisions to be made there!
