I just painted my house about three years ago so I don't think I will be changing it right now, but a girl can dream! You might remember the color scheme for my little house from my Alder St. Renovation blogs. I do still love these colors but I will be honest, if I could afford it (or had the energy to do it myself) I would probably change my inside and outside colors more often. I just love fresh paint!
-Always remember that colors look very different in real life than they do on your computer screen.
-Get a sample to paint on the exterior of your home and live with it a little while. -See what the color looks like at different times of day and in different lights.
-When picking a stain color, remember that stain colors will change based on the kind of wood you are staining. You will want to try the color you pick in a small spot to make sure it will dry the color that you want.
If you are not feeling brave enough to change up the look of the whole house, just paint your doors. Painting your doors can make a huge difference in the look of your home. If you need a little door color inspiration, I've got a blog or that too! Just click here.
