Our town journey today consisted of a quest for the perfect house color combo for our new (1912) homestead. We're inspired by that quintessential early 20th century craftsman palette while at the same time trying to avoid the mustard + avocado green vinyl siding phenomenon of the late 60's/early 70's. Tough, I know. But we did find a few keepers.
I had a hard time not getting overwhelmed with all this out-of-reach perfectness (we are far, far away from finished in our remodel endeavour, believe me!!) and in the end, rather than letting it consume me, I surrendered to looking for quilt color combos instead.
You can barely see it, but LOVE the chartreuse door on this one.
Aside from the adorable colors, I had to capture a picture of what is probably the only palm tree growing in Portland.
The kid's favorite house. Add some red trim and I'm in quilt-house heaven!
Yeah, I got bored pretty quick, so we'll be making a run to Yolo here in town to check out colors sans the running commentary from the carseat crew in the back.
And finally, the finished quilt. Forgive the light, the weather is still grey and rainy around these here parts.
