Living on the Edge- woooo

I'm always bummed when people shy away from color...

I know it feels scary, but when it's done well...

it's just so much better than the drab alternative.

When tradition...

is bucked (thank goodness) for something fresh...

it's just so darn- um- refreshing!

Take this house just a couple of blocks from my home...

Can you really tell me that 'safe' colors are attractive? (say it together with me- NOOO!) They're not safe, they don't have curb appeal- they're terrible! I'd rather see a hot mess of an orange house than this because at least it means someone tried.

Note: It takes just as much effort to pick boring neutrals as it does bad colors- not much at all. So why not jump in, live on the edge a little, and take a few stabs at something different than drab?

Tip: it really does take time and testing to find perfect colors (even for the experts!)

If I could get my hands on this house, I'd try something like this:
