Exterior Paint Advice PLEASE!!

+9
Answered
Have never painted/had a house painted before and need to choose exterior colors by next week! Thinking of going with a warmer, more buttery yellow but keep gravitating towards cooler toned color schemes when looking at options. Painter is using Sherwin Williams paint. All suggestions welcome and entertained (though we do have an HOA). Please help!

    You have a beautiful home. First things first. You have to check with the HOA to find out what colors are acceptable. Next, do you need to submit your selected color to the HOA for approval? If so, best do it before one drop of paint goes on your walls. HOA's can be brutal. Okay, paint selection.


    I believe hardily in the Feng Shui method.

    Whatever you chose, I know it will be lovely.

    What a beautiful house. One thing to consider is how it will fade in the sun over the years. I think a taupe color would be a good option. It would look great with the shingles and your black shutters. Also a blue color would look good on your door. You can actually go on Sherwin Williams website, download a pic of your house and pick a color and you can see what it will look like. Please post a picture when you're done, I'd love to see the transition.

      My last pay check was $9500 working 12 hours a week online. My sisters friend has been averaging 15k for months now and she works about 20 hours a week. I can't believe how easy it was once I tried it out. This is what I do... http://ow.ly/6aco30gcA3A

    The most impressive houses I have seen are a pale yellow. Yellow looks so crisp and clean that it just makes the home pleasing and inviting.

    I would take a long joy ride around residential areas to see if there are any color combinations that speak to me.

    All good ideas. Make sure the color you choose goes well with the roof color.

    Make sure he uses a top of the line SW paint, and not a professional grade.

    It's a beautiful house. I would follow Inetia's advice and drive around to find a color you like.

    I think it looks great! A warm buttery yellow would be nice too.
    It is hard for us to comment without knowing the HOA choices.

    I would suggest you contact your HOA as soon as possible. They usually have a color chart of the paints they allow. If you paint your house a color they haven't approved, you will have to repaint it over and/or be fined.
