Bellevue – research

Skulking around my neighbourhood last night to try to figure out what colour to paint the house, Sam and I came upon a couple of interesting things.
These must be the original windows.

Pretty charming.
And these people have done a really interesting side extension (bad photos as it was twilight and we were trying not to get arrested).

I’m not crazy about the way they’ve done the windows, but I like the roof and the visual separation between old and new. The entry porch looks better in person than in the photo.
And, I think I’ve settled on white, although ‘dead salmon’ has a particular appeal to it. I’m not up for a super bright colour, and in a neighborhood that was less grim I might go for a dark grey; in this case it needs lightening.
