Little Yellow Houses

Cottages Exterior House Colors

Today, I am showing little yellow houses, much to my own delight.

This little yellow house is my sister-in-law’s house.  She and her husband have been busy getting their home ready to sell.  Their house used to be grey and I am amazed at the transformation.  Her husband Dan made the window boxes, they installed new windows, and shutters, and while the door may look black, it is also a grey like the shutters and window boxes.

Charming little yellow houses

Little Yellow Houses

Normally, my sweet sister-in-law has flowers surrounding the front of the home, but this year has been difficult with the extreme heat and lack of rain, so she has kept the flowers down to her little patio that is hidden between the house and garage.  And, this picture is from early July so the flowers above are now is full bloom.  Nevertheless, the landscaping is soft and frames the home so charmingly.

** Many readers have written to me wanting to know the color of this little yellow house. Chris sent me a photo of the paint can information.  It is by Dutch Boy.

Dutch Boy Exterior Dura Weather Latex Flat House Paint. Nectar C8-4 or CB-4 (hard to read, but it’s one of the two)  The Colorant Name is C Yellow Oxid 48 96 192 384 and another reference number is DB800-03 (16). **

Their house is in Winterset, Iowa and homes are selling very well there so someone is sure to scoop up their 3 bedroom charming yellow home once they put it up for sale.  Some interesting facts about Winterset is they have John Wayne’s home where he was born, there is a famous yearly motorcycle rally, and the movie “Bridges of Madison County” was filmed in Winterset because of all the charming bridges in town.

Be still my heart.  I want this little yellow house with its window boxes full of blooming flowers, the porch, and landscaping.

A little yellow house that could go unnoticed if not for the welcoming arbors, fencing, flower garden, and the walkway leading directly to the sidewalk.  I do adore arbors of all kinds.

A craftsman with stone steps and foundation that is brightened up by yellow and white columns.  I think the homeowner’s made a great choice on the front door color of soft brown because it blends with the color of the stone like butter.  I admire anyone who has such full landscaping surrounding their home like this one.

 This little yellow home inspires me with its small about 4 foot fencing in front and the color tone of the green door makes it take center stage.  I am thinking that if someone repainted their house yellow or has a yellow house, they could use this color of green on the shutters and that would also look good.

This house has window boxes like most of the houses above so window boxes, little yellow houses, and white picket fences are my winning theme today.  Wadaya think?
