Spanish House needs HELP!

July 16, 2013 in Design Dilemma
We just bought this beautiful home that sat empty for over 5 years. After a clean-up job, the outside looks nice but definitely needs a pop of color (was thinking pale yellow color for entire house) and some trim on windows/ doors.
What else do you think? Please help!

I don't know what part of the country, or which country you are in, but I would highly recommend getting an exterminator to tent the house before you move in. The picture looks like a tropical location, and if the house has been uninhabited for that long, it is NOT un-lived in! There will be six and eight-legged inhabitants you will NOT want to share the space with!

Andrea, I don't like the idea of yellow with the orange roof. I would pick a grey/blue or grey/green for contrast.

we are in florida. haha thanks! we already moved in and made sure we got the pest company in here before hand ;)
@liza the picture isnt the best but the house is red, It does need to be power washed. so you think a grayish-blue or grayish-green?

I think a pale yellow would go nicely with the tile roof. I had a home here in New Mexico that color, and it looked very nice.

I would add a shallow pergola over the garage and plant bougenvillas (sp?) ;)

Bonjour, I like the light yellow and maybe you can add black iron decorative hardware (garage hinges and handles) . Keep the garage door and trim white. Good luck
