photo: Le style et la matière
I'm pondering paint colors for the country house - outer woodwork colors to go with tuffeau limestone.
My neighbor in the countryside says she does not like the non-traditional colors the facades are sporting in near-by towns. Red is pretty traditional you would think, but this is maybe a little bright and spiffy
for a region more accustomed to faded pastel blues and greens, whites, sometimes browns or forest green.

None of the colors in these pictures would be my choice for the house but I must say I find them perky
and a nice way to wake up the architecture, no matter what condition it may be in.
There needs to be some follow through on the work here!
Maybe my neighbor spoke with the owner of this house and made him doubt his paint choice.
Or did he run out of paint?
This color scheme could hardly shock
and this is traditional enough in it's two-tone treatment.
A front door is very important!
I think I know my color direction, but I realize that with all the French interior magazines,
it's fairly rare to get exterior views.
