Paint me mine

We started an addition on our house a while back and slowly but surely, it's coming together. We recently shopped around for paint and are honing in on a deep navy color with white trim.

The exisiting portion of the house is a worn sage green and the addition just has the standard gray-colored siding, so aside from living with a two-tone house for much longer than my sense of annoyance could possibly allow, I'm pretty revved up about the new paint to tie it all together.

Wavey helped put up a sample swatch...

...but then preferred to strike a pose when she saw I had my camera out:

And while discussing the color options, Wav said, "Let's not choose yellow or else people will think we peed on the house."

I love the idea of navy with white trim. That will look so clean and sharp. Great choice!

Thanks everyone - I'm just glad that yellow was never an option or else I'd always think of Wav's opinion!
