Although this series of three small homes in Kansas City, Missouri could need a little yard work, we can't help but smile every time we drive by them. They feel oh so Dr. Seuss with their Red Fish-Blue Fish paint colors, but the had us wondering, do you pick exterior paint based on the homes that are close by?

As we thought back to the homes in our previous neighborhoods, we've never lived near a home that had us thinking about clashing colors, but we have thought about colors that would stand out from the rest.

What do you base your exterior home upgrades on? Are you in a historical neighborhood which limits the colors and paint choices available to you? Share your thoughts in the comments below!
