    Can you show us a picture of your neighbors house?  Is it a different style house or can you go a slightly different but noticiable different shade? 

    I like both the red and the yellow but I think you should go for what you like best. 

    I personally don’t think the shade of ivory/yellow in the picture is quite right.  I am not sure if a less yellow more beige color would look good or just look dull though.  However, I think for the style of the house a bright yellow would be a bit much.

    I think the yellowish house will look good. I dont think the people across the street will think anything about it. I think the only time people get mad about the color of someones house is when its too bright. My aunt said someone in her circle painted there house the blue color of tarps and everyone is PISSED! IMO its your house paint it hot pink if you want!

    I think the red makes it look very rustic & country like.

    The Ivory makes it look New England Cottage like.

    Depends on your style, but I think both look good.

    I think if the style of the houses is different or if you have really different landscaping then it probably won’t matter if they are close in shades.

    LOVE the ivory! I think it makes it very cottage-y. I think the red kinda looks like barn but that is just my opinion!

    I’m a fan of the ivory/really pale yellow. I agree with PinkPinstripes, the red makes it look too barn-like.

    I love the red, but I’m a country girl and that’s my style. The plae yellow/ivory looks good too though, so I would go with what you like best. Don’t worry about the neighbor. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.

    I’m kind of a classic girl when it comes to home colors, but I’d go with a dark grey… but that’s just me!

    You could do the color you want and use a different color trim and front door to make it stand out from your neighbors house.

    I always vote yellow- I grew up in a yellow house and it will always be my favorite house color! I think it makes your house look sweet!
