The original colour of our house was yellow – which I never particularly liked. But that was how it came and at the time the paint was in good shape so we lived with it for five years. Last year we noticed some parts were starting to look worn, and the retaining walls were well and truly peeling (because when they were constructed they were never waterproofed and fitted with drain holes *frown* – sadly this means they will peel again eventually). Better to fix before the damage made it even more expensive so late last year we finally took the plunge and had the house repainted. The new colour is a delightful colour called “tea”. I love it. The house blends into the background more (matching the vegetation) and is a cooler, softer colour. I love our house now.
