Colors that didn't Pass the Grandmother Test.

The blues and reds that were chosen have ended up looking smurftastic and grandmother's disaproving glare was enough to put a kibosh on the blue's and red color scheme. Our next attempt is inspired by a grey house with black storms that I found in Minneapolis. I've chosen to test another three National Trust colors: Woodlawn Sterling Blue, Woodlawn Silver Brook and Lincoln Cottage Black. The Woodlawn colors are from the Woodlawn Estate which was originally part of George Washington's Mount Vernon.

We shall see as grandmother "Likes a nice white house."

The next test-case colors are from the National Trust selection.

The test smurf colors on the "little house" Grandmother strongly disaproves.
