The Cross House
Today, I received an email from ZD (slightly modified for clarity):
I’ve just recently come across this site and I’ve been binge reading it. Great stuff Ross! I did want to comment on the subject of the exterior colors. I think your scheme looks fantastic. However, as you mention, it’s just missing something. I can tell from the black and white archival photo that the porch columns were originally a color you have not yet represented. I also think the background behind the tower garlands and the porch railings shared this color, along with numerous other areas.
Pay close attention to the details I mention above.
Attached, was a link to four images.
You will, too.
Now, wanna really freak out?
Scroll way down…
The columns are now color #5, as is the background rectangles of the tower garlands.
The porch railings are now, mostly, also color #5.
Compare with the actual:
Well, I am gobsmacked. Thanks, ZD!
I love the garland rectangles in color #5.
I am intrigued about the columns being color #5 but worry, still, that they may not have enough visual heft to support the heavy porch roof. I will ponder ZD’s proposal though!
What do you think?
And, thanks, ZD!!!!!!!! Fabulous! Fabulous!
