New fence colors are brightening up the neighborhood which is a pleasant and welcomed trend in Weinland Park. It offsets some the beige and other unfortunate neutral colors. In some quarters beige is thought of as still acceptable but those blessed with taste know that beige is never, ever acceptable. However, if you are stuck with beige in your architectural setting try to pass it off as “golden ivory” or “cappuccino froth”  or some other made up color name. Acting serious about your color name is essential here. Then get started on some painting.


Does the gate match the window trim isn’t a new sexual innuendo but just good color management.


Using more than one color is just fine.


It’s getting warm so get out there and get painting!
