I think yellow shutters would brighten it up, or you could go darker with a navy feel. I would shy away from black or white as they are too extreme with the light blue.

maybe white would be a good color just for the steps and doors... you could also add a pop of color by painting the doors the same color as the shutters (yellow or navy?) and keep the steps white.

Hi, I like the suggestion of yellow. You could also go a darker shade of blue or try green. Check out a color wheel and look for colors that are close to your house color for a small change. I always love multiple colors on a house, so whatever color you decide add white for your third color.

Pait the shutters the same color as the house, in semi-gloss. Paint the back door with the same semi-gloss. I think the foundation should be painted foundation color...a concrete shade. Same with the front steps. Then I would paint the front door, in high-gloss, black or deep purple.

@judyg... I don't know what's going on ... I just realized that I wasn't following you again. It must be something I'm doing wrong because I know it's happened another time as well.... Weird! I got you back :-)

Do you think that I did something when I removed one check from my profile so I would stop getting every comment on every post I have submitted a suggestion? Yesterday I had 140+ e-mails, but only a few really had anything to do with me.

Judyg, I'm not sure about that...I've never gotten that many e-mails regarding my comments. You are a popular girl....LOL. I just noticed that I was no longer following you today when I was looking over my profile page But you were still following me and I know that the same thing happened with you once before. I haven't noticed losing anyone else??? I wish there was a place on individual profile pages where we could leave a message for that person. If I want to ask someone a question that's really not related to a specific delimma I never know where to leave the message....... This is a perfect example! Sorry Tramsdell??

I just painted my kitchen aqua with red and black accents. So I'm thinking some shade of red. Or black. Will make the blue pop.
