The sun is out, it’s getting warmer, and I have received the occasional request to start writing about specifying exterior colour. I have a lot to say about this topic as well but I’m starting with a short post today; an exterior in the West End of Vancouver, to show you 3 undertones :
1. The body (siding) which is a green/gray
2. The stone which is pink (my favourite – NOT)
3. The pillars, balcony and fascia which are a very creamy yellow
The colours are washed out by the sun but you can see the stone up closer in this photo along with the trim colour.
And just so you know, I don’t think it’s really bad, however, I was motivated enough to stop and take a photo to point out a couple things. . . you’ll have to check back later in the comments to find out!
