Consider the history of your home
If you want to paint an old house, a good solution would be to take into account the history of that house and talk to a specialist to help you with the original color of the house or different color schemes from the period when it was built. If you have a Victorian house style you have to use almost six colors.
Another great idea is to do some research on your own, find out some inspiring historical color combinations by visiting historical homes, such as Roseland Cottage in Connecticut and choose what you really like. Moreover, according to home experts, these days you can find a lot of hues that replicate popular colors from the eighteenth, nineteenth, and early twentieth century.
