The other day, I walked up the hill to my house and thought, “wow, the awning looks like shit.” It’s not something I look at often, but now that I’ve seen it, I can’t un-see it. I need to paint the awning.
Scratch that. I need to pay someone to paint the awning.
What color should I paint it?
The first answer that comes to mind whenever I consider color options for just about anything (dresses, couches, walls, sheets, etc.) is Red. But, loathe as I am to admit it, I don’t think red goes well with the orange brick. I could, of course, just repaint it black and white. But I’d like to at least explore the idea of color. I like the idea of being able to give directions to the house with the _______ color awning. The railing and the front panel of the porch are also available for repainting. I don’t think I want to touch the shutters. I’m thinking the blue/green family is the best contender. Bold or Pastel? Should I be considering another palette? The orange brick could lend to a Tuscan look. Is it all pointless if I don’t paint the shutters? Design mavens, lend me your eyes.
