Gray, yellow and a giveaway.

Wow.  I had no idea you guys would all choose the Anthro numbers!  It was unanimous.  Would you change your mind if I spray painted the black numbers red?

In determining what numbers to put on the house, I am trying to figure out what I want the look of the house to be.  Here’s my thought.  We have an old, traditional, home that seems to be a little mix of bungalow and ranch style.  Because it is old and traditional, I want to incorporate little pieces of modern, but not too many.  I want it to look like young, fun people live there, even if they don’t.  🙂  Mom and I have a few ideas for funky plants.  But for the overall look of the house, I want the gray, white and yellow color combo. I thought the yellow was a little unpredictable, but it turns out that lots of people love this!  For instance, did you know there is a whole blog called The Yellow Front Door?

My own gray/yellow combo inspiration comes from here.

The contrast between the gray, yellow and white really pops.

Same idea below, with black, rather than white.

So with that in mind, does it change your mind on the numbers?

Also: have you guys ever heard of High Gloss?  It is an online magazine that provides great inspiration!  They have a give away for an IOMOI totebag.  Click the High Gloss link to enter.  (Sorry!  The links were not working but they should be now.)

    Love the pics of grey and yellow. The first one is my favorite!
    Love ya.

  2. I was going to vote for the black numbers. Does my after-the-fact vote count? (Kind of sounds like those are the ones you want.)

  3. I gotta say, I’m still thinking Anthro. I think a yellow door would coordinate perfectly with them!

  4. LOVE, love, love the yellow and gray color combo. And I also liked the black numbers, and would love them doubly in red. Go with your gut. I think the Anthro ones would also look awesome with a yellow door. Close your eyes and picture what you want the house to look like, and maybe that will help you picture it. Love it–keep up the fun updates! Miss your cute smile. And congrats on the house!

  5. Girl, go with what you like. I couldn’t tell that those numbers were black, the packaging must have disguised them in the pictures. I thought they were stainless steel looking. I think black numbers would look nice.

  6. I’d say spray paint the current numbers and put them up for a while. If you don’t like them; you’re only out a couple bucks. Absolutely go with a cool and funky color for your front door….mine is HOT PINK.
