Here’s what I want to know: How does anyone narrow down the choices for house paint colors? It’s truly baffling, especially in a city as colorful and diverse as New Orleans. In other towns and hamlets, white on white might be the norm. Or maybe the whole area has brick houses and you only choice is the trim color. In that case, the choice would be a bit less daunting.
But in the Big Easy, where anything goes, the choices for house colors are not easy.
And that’s why this taupe house with yellow trim caught my eye. How to narrow down the selections? This is simple and elegant.
Here’s what we’ve got:
Door, mailbox, railing and window frames: Mustard Yellow
Door trim and window trim: Light Taupe
Fascia and picket fence: White
Awning: Black and Taupe
Roofing: Dark Gray
Well done, homeowners!
