Exterior Paint Schemes For Historical Houses


Owners of historical homes know that choosing paint colors is a nerve-wracking and critically important decision. Ready-mix paints have been available since the middle part of the nineteenth century and from that time home owners have had to choose their colors without really knowing how their finished home will look. After all, a two inch paint chip looks very different from a 3,000 square foot house!

In a visit to New England in the 1840s, famed novelist Charles Dickens commented, "All the buildings looked as if they had been painted that morning ... Every house is the whitest of white; every shutter is the greenest of green."

If you have an older home and want to choose colors other than green and white, here are some guidelines"

1. Light colors "advance" a home while dark colors cause it to "recede". This means that lighter shades will make your home appear larger and closer to the street, while darker shades make your home seem smaller and further away. If you want your house to blend in and be less noticeable, therefore, a darker hue is best.

2. Light dramatically affects how colors appear to the human eye. In cooler climates the light is diffused and bold colors are intensified. In southern climates, the harsher, brighter sunlight will cause pale tints to appear washed out.

3. If you want your gutters and downspouts to be less noticeable, paint them the same color as the house.

4. Make sure any mildew problems are solved before painting. Test suspicious spots with household bleach and if they change color, you definitely have a mildew problem.

5. Moisture problems must be eliminated before painting. If they are not, water will ruin even the best paint job.

6. Some paint manufacturers offer color 'families' to simplify choosing. That is, there are several colors that go well together and eliminate the agony of figuring out the exact right shade for the trim so that it will relate well to the primary exterior color.

7. It's always possible to get expert help. This is especially desirable if you own a historical landmark and wish for it to be restored to its former appearance. Historical paint consultants are familiar with shades available at the time the home was built and can often do research to determine original colors. These folks understand chemical changes in paint and can usually figure out what the original colors looked like before they faded to today's milder colors.

8. There is software available that allows home owners to scan in a picture of their home and then try out different colors without making an actual commitment. It's powerful to see your home in Colonial Barn Red or Patriot Federal Blue before actually putting a drop of color on the outside.

9. You might consider staining your historical property, rather than painting it. Stain is cheaper and it won't peel off or crack the way paint does. This is because it actually sinks into the wood, rather than coating it so it will instead weather and dim over time. Stain won't cover up any imperfections in the wood the way paint does, however.

Owning and living in a historically significant home is a privilege and maintaining that house is a responsibility to take seriously. Therefore, avoid hasty color choices and take the time to choose wisely.

Garden Parasols

beach  parasol

Wayfair.co.uk have enlisted Laura Hitchcock , award-winning lifestyle blogger at Little Stuff to help you choose some of the essentials which bring a little personality and warmth to your garden - here she’s looking at how to choose the perfect garden parasols , awnings and umbrellas to provide shade and protection on the hottest (or wettest!) summer days.

Parasols tend to come in three basic types , which it’s worth choosing between when you start to look. The classic β€˜Market’ umbrella sits in a stand , and the pole is straight up the middle (often sitting through a table). These are great for table protection , obviously , but also take up much less space – if you have a small plot or narrow patio then this is definitely your best choice.

To work around the glare when the sun sinks low in the sky , I’m a big fan of the parasols by the brand Lynton Garden– they have plenty of overhead shade , but you can tilt it as the sun sinks for continued protection from the early evening glare on your sun-downers.

A genius option for small patios , courtyard gardens and balconies is this brilliant Rectangular Market Parasol from dCor design (which isn’t a rectangle at all – it’s half a hexagon). It mounts against a wall , so even the smallest terrace can enjoy some midday shade.

Cantilever parasols hang below the pole , which is set at an angle – lots of shade , and with the added benefit of altering the angle as the sun shifts through the day. For me , the classic looks of a cantilever parasol wins hands down for any garden. I love that cool style – don't they look like a 1930’s angle-poise lamp? Gorgeous.

For a more portable option , go for a beach parasol – typically less sturdy in construction , these are the ones you want for a day out at the beach; they’re literally a giant version of your handbag rain umbrella , and are perfect for temporary shade on the move. I love Outsunny’s selection of parasols , they are great value so a good buy if you're on a budget and come in many bright colours and striped designs.

Wayfair.co.uk loves everything home and dΓ©cor , and we want to make sure that you do too. That's why we carry a zillion different Parasols for sale online. With options it's easy to narrow down your online shopping to find Parasols that are right for your home. With great products like the Jasper 1.5m Rectangular Traditional Parasol and the Ali 1.5m Beach Parasol you're sure to find the right Parasols that fit into your home.

    I bought 2 of the 50cmh pots, the look great, much more expensive than they cost. They have an inner liner with handles so you can lift the plant out to water etc. Delivery was really quick too.

    The flat-pack arrived in excellent condition and the instructions were easy to follow . Could not resist starting assembly straight away, all parts were perfectly machined and went together accurately and within an hour or so of arrival I was sitting on the cushioned bench with shoes and boots neatly stored beneath.Thank you www.boisecloggers.com and the manufactures you sourced so well.

    Perfect size for our balcony, fits perfectly down one side. It had been difficult to find a planter which was a bit smaller than standard. Great quality as well. Will fit 3 small plants perfectly - we;re going for herbs.

    My husband put the bench together yesterday, and we're going to get it into the garden this afternoon. Lock-down has meant we weren't able to get our back garden remodelled, but we know we want this bench, and where it will be going. Meanwhile, we'll just enjoy using it ! I love the soft aqua colour, and the centre section able to be raised for an armrest/ mug stand.

    Delivered quickly , very straightforward to put together. Box is sturdy ,colour and material excellent. Hinge mechanism on the lid is superb. Have had torrential rain it has proved to be fully water tight. My only recommendation is that it could be designed to have a half size shelf to go in it .Otherwise fantastic purchase.

    Quick delivery . The box is a great size . I have 3 two seaters with 10 cm cushions for sitting on and back rest. I also have 3 stool cushions and a patio umbrella which fit neatly into it. However when it arrived the lid was slightly warped at the front. I tried calling to complain but couldn’t get through . Instructions to build easy to follow . One morning I got up and the lid had blown up and cushions were all wet , because of this I had to move into my shed, not sure if this is because of the fault with the lid . I feel for the price this shouldn’t have happened and should have been given a discount for the defective lid .

    Exactly as described good quality (keter) assembly was easy just a screwdriver and a second pair of hands when fixing the lid on. It now has all the cushions from our corner suite inside of which was impressive.

    Prompt delivery, good quality set for my apartment balcony. Just took about 15 minutes to unpack box, put on screw in feet, etc. Only grief was an annoying large sticker on the table glass top that just wouldn't peel off but soon removed after buying and using some white spirit

    Bought 2 of these to sit side by side in my garden border. They are exactly as shown & described, a lovely quality & good weight. I really like that they have drainage holes (so many garden pots don't) as I like to put flowers & shrubs direct into the pot. They make a nice feature in the garden & I'm really pleased with them.

    Great size for all my outdoor cushions. Built it my myself in just under an hour. Relatively straight forward build, it hasn’t rained yet so hopefully will prove to be waterproof when it does!!
