Sue, the exterior is a smooth finish stucco. I will track down more info on the color but I know it was a result of trial and error arriving at the right color. We did not design build. We are not a general contractor. Steve Simpson was the architect, Urban Pacific Construction was the GC and we made the interior and exterior decisions.

Thanks so much for taking the time to answer. If you track down more info on the color, that would be wonderful. I am very grateful. Are you interior decorators?

We used vinyl wood look planks in a rental property - it's not only beautiful and indestructible, but planks can be replaced if ever needed. We've used laminate in our own home for years - never had any problems with it at all and it's much more forgiving than any of the hard floor surfaces. Going green with cork would have been our first choice, but reviews indicate that cork fades in the sun - since our kitchen is very large and half of it gets the afternoon sun, we'd have ended up with a 2 tone floor. Not an option!

Another problem to be avoided is a dishwasher next to a corner. Any cabinets near the corner (base and wall) are unreachable when the dishwasher is open and unloading dishes becomes a process of unloading onto the countertop, closing the dishwasher, and loading into cabinets. Ugh.

Also, does anyone know why ALL microwaves are hinged on the left?

In Canada, lead-based paints are also prohibited. That aside, I prefer my tile backsplash. It adds texture to the room and is easy to clean, which I do about once every 6 months. No big deal. To each their own.

Hi Kelley! Your home is lovely! The architectural elements are just gorgeous!! If you like yellow -- keep it. The problem is your furniture looks bad with the yellow color. I think one of the big color combinations now is yellow/gray/cream. There are some lovely rugs on overstock in those colors. If you can afford to change the furniture, go with a gray sofa, chair. Use some gray/yellow/cream patterned curtains, and throw pillows. It will be beautiful. If, however, you have decided you just don't like the yellow and you must keep the furniture, you could paint the room a medium beige color (the furniture looks like linen slip covers). It will still highlight the architecture and make the furniture look better. You could also go with a sage green color (at least it looks like there is a sage green stripe in the dining chairs). The green color will also "cross-pollinate" the colors in both rooms, as you have a nice green rug in the den. Good luck and please post an after picture so we can see how lovely it turned out!
