    I tend to like houses that stand out so I voted for the mint color. Gray would be my second choice and I am anti-dark tan.

    I’m all about gray! I think that’s an awesome color for a house – it’s unique, but it’s not totally crazy, haha.

    Loving grey!

    I’m so into grey right now, I’ve been trying to convince the hubby that we should repaint our family room walls to a grey, but he’s not into it since we just painted a couple of months ago!

    So yeah, I’d love to live vicariously through you! 😉

    Grey was our major wedding color and now we have a grey kitchen and bathroom! It’s unusual without being so “out there” the house won’t sell again (if that’s important to you).

    My house is dark tan with green shutters and dark brown roof. I honestly love it.  Grey just seems uninspiring to me and mint I no likey. 🙂 Here’s a pic of our house if you are curious about color. Oh and if you can see the heart wreath on the fence, don’t worry, I ripped that sucker down 3 seconds after we were given the keys!

    I think gray always looks nice on a house.

    We painted our house this summer and were deciding between those three colors.  We eventually narrowed it down to something greenish but we went back and forth to the paint store a million times. If there’s any way you can paint a couple color swatches on something, I’d highly reccomend that.  They look really differnt from the cards.We ended up with 8 sample colors which we painted all over the house and for a week or so had a polka dotted house.  We ended up going with “Rushing River” from Sherwin Williams.

    definitely go for the green! Almost all new-builds now are some shade of grey/tan/brown because of HOAs and such. I just bought a house that is green and I’m SO excited to have a house that will stand out a little bit.

    The green sounds like a great option… but I can’t really tell until we see some approximate color for the choices and a pic of the house. Until then its just a shot in the dark!

    I would go with gray! We’re building a home right now too, and gray is what we’re going with!

    I voted for green! I like a house that stands out and I’m a huge fan of the mint green colour. Then again, I do live in a blue house.
