"I wanted to lighten up a dark, modest Craftsman house with a pop of yellow on the front door. Yellows can often be too juvenile, too in-your-face, too much, but the little bit of lime in this one makes it more sophisticated. It's playful and happy but not too Disney. Do it in high gloss for depth." -Tamara Kaye-Honey. Casava 15-10 by Pratt & Lambert
Deep, inky blue on the stucco siding gives the impression of a solidly constructed home with real permanence in the landscape. Bright white trim provides a clear contrast with the dark body color and keeps architectural details, such as the patterned stick-work in the roof and porch gables, from being upstaged.
