Re: What do you think about the COLORS of this Exterior?

I think they're very nice & fit the Victorian style.  Our city has different sections of Victorian homes & are on the historical list.  Last I knew, colors & outside addtions need to be approved by the city.  Driving on a street with this type of home is very eye catching everytime.  The colors really stand out.

This home appears to be in the historic part of town.  I like the colors they used.

A Painted Lady house is beautiful when done in the proper style. I know someone that owns one and I forget how many colors she told me she needed to use when she repaints her house. I know it was more than 6 - talk about $$$.

The brick is totally throwing me off - not sure what to think. Leaning toward no.

I think I would have played down the red brick by using a taupe color paint and where the yellow is, possibly black or white.

If I had to use this color brick, would have gone with a little bit more muted green.  Would also paint the area surrounding the 2nd floor window similar to the brick color to help tie it in.

Hideous.  Garish.  Are the first two words that come to mind.
