Red and Teal accents

After much internet searching, many pinterest pins, and a serious debate with my husband about the color fuchsia (I lost that debate), I have chosen Red and Teal as accent colors for our house. And also our mailbox. Our little house in the woods that we bought 6 years ago and somehow it was only a few weeks ago that I decided to put on shutters.

What this picture doesn’t show is the red front door which I managed a few years ago, I am very temped to paint the screen door teal, but haven’t made up my mind yet.  My Christmas present from my husband was the custom made window boxes and I really do love looking out the window through the FUCHSIA petunias that I hope grow fast and overflow the boxes soon. Fuchsia did not make the cut as an accent color, but I snuck it in by the end.  We started with a brown house with a brown roof and darker brown accents, but I am hopeful that maybe next summer I can paint it yellow  and keep these new accent colors. Some of my inspiration below;

Because all my internet research tells me that a yellow house makes the blue and red look fabulous, don’t ya think?
