What Houzz contributors are saying:

The Franks tapped local architect John MacDonald to create their Craftsman-style house in Cayucos, a small beach community on Highway 1, just north of San Luis Obispo. Then they took their time choosing a color palette for the exterior. They wanted colors that fit the house but also that fit the neighborhood, which leans toward colorful. They chose traditional Craftsman colors using a process created by Rob Schweitzer, director of research for the Arts & Crafts Society.When the color was finally on, Phyllis was shocked at first. "The house was bright, standing apart from the other houses on the block. People started driving down the street and stopping in front of the house," she says. "Thankfully, they were unanimous in their praise. This continues to happen daily if we sit out on the front porch in the afternoon. It took a week or so to get used to it, but it is perfect."All paint colors by Sherwin-Williams. Base: Antique Gold; trim: Golden Rule; accent: Olive Drab; window accent: Wineberry
