... I'm thinking white walls and matt grey (dark,as in charcoal) woodwork - window frames/door/door frame)- saw it on a house the other day and it looked fab - very cool - took a picture - my house is also Victorian so similar to this - what do you think ? (on my profile page!)
I like the white on teh stone bits around the window and charcoal on the woodwork sounds good. For me though, I wouldn't do white walls but more of a natural colour like the house next door in the picture. Preferably get them sandblasted back to the bare brick, but that might be a bit more work than you were planning!
I've added a pic of a bit of my house front as it is at the moment, if that helps. We were just going to have white paintwork all over and a bluey door but I saw the grey and it struck a note with me (I think it looks quite architecty - my dad is one, so it's his fault - he likes it, by the way !)
southeastastra - did you mean you'd not go for the grey ?
Thanks for liking my pictures though - yes,.I have done some books - a few childrens picture books and lots of children's poetry books,and educational stuff.
oh I am really thinking of going for grey - despite all your respected opinions -I saw another building with it today (in Midhurst as we were driving through) and I just think it'll satisfy my need to be a little bit different, a little bit edgy !
DH isn't sure but said that he trusts my instincts - hope I;m right !!! Still willing to be swayed if anyone really thinks it's a crap idea !
