So, we have been working on the house. We’re always working on the house. But this spring, we did some active hiring and had a painter come in and do some interior work on the house, paint our front door from scuffed up white to 10 Downing Street black, and our back siding blue. Looking at the wee paint chip, I liked the blue. It seemed to have a nice regal quality to it. But, you know what they say about choosing paint colour. Always look at the colour in varying light. I forgot this rule and what resulted, I am not so sure about.
We have had all sorts of comments from neighbours and family, all positive. Some have mentioned the colour evoking the mediterranean, the homes in St. John’s Newfoundland and the Caribbean. I’m not completely sold but Graeme assured me that we can paint over it if we don’t love it. I always feel this way after painting something a new colour. I always need some “acceptance time”.
What do you think? Too blue? Too bright? Not enough? Maybe I should have gone navy. *sigh*
