POLL: - Help with colour selection please!

I am about to change the colour scheme of the house... Something I/we wanted to do, and now I think is the time to do it... Also, as the painter suggested, to do it PRIOR to having the brickwork, repointed!

So here is the house now, in the classic Green & Cream scheme (which I detest!)

HOUSE 1, originally uploaded by AussiePomm.
HOUSE 1 Gabel Ends, originally uploaded by AussiePomm.
HOUSE 1 Entrance, originally uploaded by AussiePomm.

Now here I offer you some different combinations of colour schemes, AND I want YOUR comments/suggestions, and to even discuss this amongst yourselves and debate which one I will choose (please?)!


HOUSE 2, originally uploaded by AussiePomm.


HOUSE 3, originally uploaded by AussiePomm.

NOTE: Brickwork will NOT be painted, so please refer to window frames, doors, facias etc).


HOUSE 4, originally uploaded by AussiePomm.

So, what will it be??? Let the discussions begin!!!



  1. I like #1 best. It's calmer and warmer and welcoming.

  2. Out of your options, I'd go with the first. It seems a little dull though . . . What about something flashy like dark red with white trim? ;) Though actually white or cream makes a really great trim against brick.

    I am virtually useless with this kind of thing. But what about a deep mushroomy brown with plum trim? I atually quite like the colours you have now...so you can see it's pointless asking me!

  4. I like option 3...

    The blue/grey with the red looks good.

  5. Hi B,

    I have issues when I try to post on your blog I can't post.........may
    be our webmaster doing its tricks.......anyway, I like no 1 as it would
    suit in your street and not be too loud?

    Cheers Aw


    Not sure what the problem is, but I have 'tweaked' it a little... Let me know how it goes next time!
