    Now that it's summer, you can start crossing those jobs off the list that are outside. If painting your house is on the list, then be sure to take a look at some of these tips for choosing the right color for you. Reilly Painting is a premiere painting company in Cleveland, so be sure to give us a call for all your painting needs!

    1. Honor History
    If you're planning to paint an older home, you'll probably want to use a historically accurate color scheme. You can hire a pro to analyze old paint chips and recreate the original color. Or, you can refer to historic color charts and select shades that might have been used at the time your home was built.

    2. Jazz Up the Past
    In some neighborhoods, homeowners fly in the face of history. Instead of choosing historically accurate colors, they paint their houses modern colors to dramatize architectural details. Using bright colors on old architectural details can produce startling and exciting results. But before you buy 10 gallons of bubblegum pink, it's a good idea to look at what your neighbors are doing. A fluorescent colored Victorian that looks splendid in San Francisco will seem wildly out of place in more conservative neighborhoods.
