Visualizing home colors
October 3, 2009 2:17 PM Subscribe
So, it's time to paint my 100 year old house in Portland. How to choose colors? Are there any good online resources, in particular image galleries of homes painted specific colors? (i.e., "this 1925 craftsman is painted Benjamin Moore 741 Eggplant, with trim colors 219 Cream Soda and 987 Driftwood Sand")

I only have a couple of days to choose colors so the house can get painted before the rains roll in, and I have no idea how to go about this. It's a big beautiful old house in a funky neighborhood, and I really don't want to get this wrong. My only other idea is to walk around and ask owners of other homes, hoping they remember what colors they used. Any advice you might have about online resources or choosing colors in general is greatly appreciated, thank you.
