Bluff Diaries Chapter 15

Good morning. Hope everyone is well and enjoyed a wonderful Easter holiday. Bet you weren’t thinking I would post another chapter so soon, neither did I!  On the PB side of things, everything is really moving along at a nice swift pace. Brick chimneys are almost up and cannot wait to see them done. We went with the pierced chimney detail which I just love.

Starting to firm up kitchen details, bath flooring and lots of other fun and exciting things.Thanks to all for weighing in on the outdoor porch flooring options. Turns out we could not use brick in the front as we could only use up to 1″ stone and the brick we used for the house does not come as a brick flat. Then we realized by using outdoor rugs on the back porch, there won’t be a lot of “floor reveal” so took that expense and will put it into millwork indoors. Hoping to get down there in a few weeks.

Today is all about a decision that needs to be made pronto, shutter color. I am tossing and turning and just when you think choosing a light blue paint is a piece of cake, you walk into a paint store and realize it’s a whole world unto itself:) Plus doing this from afar does not make it easier, if I were there, I would probably be able to. make it much faster.

I am leaning towards 1 or 2 colors here and hoping by doing this post, you can help me winnow it down!

So this is the exterior color (a soft ivory) with the roof color (a pale soft silvery gray) I want pale blue/gray shutters. Just keep this color combo in mind as you scroll along…..

These are pictures I gathered over time from my “blue shutter collection”,  a few are darker and a few lighter.  I want something in the soft gray/blue family.  Would love your opinion as I narrow it down and soon make a final choice-

All colors below shown are Benjamin Moore. Ready to put on your thinking caps?

After a while they start to look alike but I think I have it narrowed down to two. I look forward to seeing what you all have to say. Thanks for your input in advance!
