My husband and I are currently in the house hunting process. We love this one (especially the interior), but feel the outside is kind of blah as far as the color scheme.
I have two questions:
1) It was built in 1866. Does anyone know the name for what style of house this is (Colonial, etc)? It's in Southeast Michigan, if that helps.
2) I'm having a hard time imagining what color to paint the house and the trim. I wish the brick was left alone, and I imagine it would be a really big hassle to remove the paint... plus, I don't want to sandblast brick that's so old. Any other exterior suggestions (shutters, etc.) would be appreciated. It's also important to me to make the colors look good with the roof.
Pictures of the interior have been included to give you more of a flavor for the home.
