House of Many Colors

Ever have a style that you admire but that you just can't seem to recreate? I love the shabby chic style and thought that I found just the right colors of light blue, ivory and "bamboo." Unfortunately, the blue looked like bright cornflower blue. Just mix in a little gray and... no dice. Still an unfortunate color! I only wish it looked as good as this picture does. So, what if I use that bamboo tan for the body and the blue could maybe be a trim color? Nope. Wedgewood green? Italian sage? "Go bold," my husband said. Try dark colors. He thought red... I thought it looked like a barn. I want subtle and sophisticated. Right now, I have patchy and uninspired! :) Help!

I've found an inspiration photo that I like, but would it work? (<--Click on the word "photo" to see it). I really want the outside of this house done! Any ideas?
