I see grayish-green, my wife sees greenish-gray. Big difference? Not if we were debating the color of my sweater. But this is the color we may paint the exterior of our house, and if it’s too gray, she won’t be happy, and if it’s too green, I won’t be happy, and so we’re stuck debating a question for which there is no right answer. Only opinions.
Of all the decisions homeowners tackle in the first few years after buying a house, whether it’s hanging new window treatments, updating a kitchen or bath, or landscaping the yard — is anything more difficult, and more stressful, than choosing what color to paint the outside? If you paint a bedroom yellow and decide a week later it’s more like cream, repainting is no big deal. If you paint your house yellow and decide it’s more like cream, you learn to like cream.
