Looking over the photos now, we're trying to decide whether these rusty terracotta reds are the right way to go. Possible drawbacks:
• Rusty reds look great in the sun, but let's face it—most of the time, it's overcast and foggy here in San Francisco.
• We don't want a color that's matchy-matchy with our adobe tile roof.
• So many rusty paint colors have so much pink in them; we might run the risk of ending up with something too "Sedona" (to quote a friend).
• With a stucco house in a Mediterranean style, we have to wonder if going with a clay red color is a bit too "literal."
Thoughts? House-dwellers, we'd love to hear how you chose your exterior paint. Have you been inspired by your travels? If so, did the finished product live up to your far-flung fantasy?
