more sample painting

Ok, I guess my new hobby are sample paints…
I ordered 3 paint-plaster-samples for our facade a few weeks ago because we had a hard time deciding on the color of the house from a 2 by 4 cm “big” color snippet from the color scheme. We couldn’t go for the really dark colors we initially wanted, because there’s a much likely chance of cracks from jumpy differences between the warm/cold on the facade. (it’s just a problem with those insulated facades) But we also didn’t wanted to have a muddy plinth on our new white house… so we thought about adding some darker color to the base. Pretty fast we decided to go with a blue base.

The great thing about the samples was that they already had the real structure of the finished wall so you could easily imagine how it could look on your house.

We decided to go with sample version no. 2!
I like the classic greenblueish touch of it.
And let me just tell you: Yesterday I saw it on our facade for the first time and it looked amazing! I love it! In the sunshine it looks a bit more blue almost like version no.1 but in the shadow it develops a more sophisticated darker look.
Show you the pictures of the finished exterior next week. Have a great weekend!
