Greenie, Heavenly, Bliss....



Ooooh, I do love this green! And I love that it has been applied to the exterior of this home (somewhere in Southern Europe to be sure) with such confidence! Some of you will know too well, that I too did a little experiment with this colour green a few years ago. In a furious moment of creativity - I painted the outside of my old timber fisherman's cottage in a tone not too dissimilar. For me, the expression lasted about 12 hours (before it was quickly restored to a much more acceptable shade of white) but somewhere, deep down inside, I wish I'd had the gumption to keep it green. Even for just a day. Perhaps green with a red door and cobalt blue shutters! Ah, for another lifetime!!!

Hi Shannon, I have a bit of bold colour on the front of my house and I love it! Its a teal, blue colour.

You just prompted me to do a post about the front of my house.

Have a look:

The Europeans do it well and BOLD. My love of colour has me really drawn to this image. I would love to see more coloured homes in Australia and bright, bold doors.

I remember reading about your experience painting the exterior of your home in green. I tend to choose 'safe' colours too although I was very close to painting the exterior of my home in blue.

And I love the aqua with the green! I need a little push to get my courtyard doors painted! (They've been taped off for 2 months!)
