Wow, that is a lot of yellow.

I think the yellow is ok on the siding and the white trim looks good too but you have to put a different color on that foundation of the house. Maybe a brownish color.....probably a white though. Also, paint the columns on the porch white.

HaHa yeah tell me about. That same yellow was in the kitchen, bathroom and 1 bedroom when we bought it....
The whole thing has to get painted even if it stays yellow. So you would actually choose the description uou gave over another color all together? I do like your idea though.....Its just overkill and after 2 years I am sort of over it. I think.

I actually don't mind the yellow (on the top half, siding part of the house) but if you hate it then pick a color that would flow with the stone work that is on the two ends of the house. There are about a dozen colors of beige that would look nice. You may even be able to paint an earth tone shade of green to blend with the woods.
