My landlord has finally decided that's time to paint and the house and has allow us to choose the color scheme. Needless to say,  I immediately went online and searched for "dream houses" in order to find the inspiration needed to pick our color scheme. Here are the top contenders:

Option 2: Paint the house in seafoam green, trim in white & shutters in black.
