New color for house

We had a bad hail storm in August and needed to get a new roof and paint.  We decided to change the color from a light grey green to a darker green.  It is funny how those small paint chips look soooo much different when the whole house is painted.  They even came out and painted a sample which seem to look ok at the time.  Right now I am not so sure about the color.  They haven't finished it yet but the the front is close to being done. I think right now it is just a color shock for me since I have lived with the lighter color (which I never liked when we moved here) for over a year now. I sure that I will get used to it over time.

Here is the before picture of the old color.

Now here is what it is looking like now. 

This isn't exactly what it looks like in person.  It's funny how the color changes when you take a picture verses in person.  It is more a medium sage color.  Don't you just love the contractor sign in the front.

The shutters above the garage door and all of the doors are going to be a brownish red color.  Still not sure about this color.  But it was approved by the HOA.  It is better than the one down the street that just got painted a really dark teal.  Maybe it will look better this Spring.
