This photo was taken this morning - from my cell phone. As I waited for a client I noticed just how beautiful the sky was matched up against the building colors.
While taking it all in,I thought about some of the more popular colors here in Tucson that people use to paint their homes. Often you wouldn't think that the colors would blend or work together - but against the Sonora landscape and sky - they do!
Here are some popular desert southwest colors for homes:
Sage green mixed with various hues of purple
Tan and Brown combinations
Rust or burnt orange mixed with hues of golden yellow
White, of course is a favorite with many color options for wood and window trim.
As in this picture, various hues of blue - my favorite is a denim blue, for trim and it works well with many colors such as lime green (really - looks great on a house if done right!), bright yellows and rust reds.
If you live here in Arizona, you have so many options for color that brighten up the desert landscape that surrounds it! Enjoy and don't be afraid to color your life up a little!
