Here's a challenge. We're pretty sure we'll paint the facade and the shutters at some point to brighten it up. The question is, what colors?
Any color scheme has to be approved by the mayor of Leran. Any color scheme has to, most likely, fit with the other houses in the neighborhood. So, can you e-mail us pictures or send some pictures torn from magazines by regular mail and indicate what we should do? Or send us names of Benjamin Moore paint chips, like Jamaica Rust, or Icelandic mauve, or Old Faithful Steam (I made those names up). Try to imagine this picture with a bright blue sky, or not.
Alan and Eileen's house right down the street is a creamy white with blue trim and shutters and it's probably the brightest thing on the street. There's not a lot of color on Rue du Four. Right across the street is a house whose color is not in my memory bank but has British Racing Green shutters. There may be some bright rasberry shutters somewhere in town as we recall, and the house pictured a few posts back with the blue shutters is not too far away. The winner gets an all-expenses-paid trip from Toulouse or Carcassone to help us paint the first brushstrokes.
