I Like that too, isn't that kinda the same as the papaya color that SoFLGal noted? I also really like all the bright pastel colored homes - but I guess you have to go to Bermuda for that. I have always gotten a little gloomy with the overcast skys up in Western NY. I can't wait to get down there - especially this winter.

The worst are those sickly green colored houses that look like baby diarrhea. (sorry for the image!)

I think it's good if you've got young kids--if they puke on the wall it doesn't show.

My fav: Naples Yellow with white trim-not the harsh yellow, a "mellow yellow" but not old gold.

I like beige too and will be painting our house that color as soon as the heat abates. The house is currently harsh bright yellow and I want something that my rose plants will look good against. Beige is the perfect backdrop. If I didn't have roses I would go for terra cotta instead of my fav yellow because it would be diff. from our last house and match the brick walkway.

I love all the Florida colors. The house next door is green and the one farther is blue. Terra cotta or yellow would be perfect but I'm going with beige :-)

Around here almost all the "new" houses are those "Tuscan" colors...I personally can't stand them!! They remind me of camoflauge hunter's clothes with the olive green, brown & tan!!

My house is beige with peach color tile roof & trim, & turquoise ceilings on the porch roofs.

I've always favored beige colors. But my current house is a pale yellow with a green roof (country-style home), and I love it!

Anything but the pinky coral houses. Maybe it's my northern background but I just see orange!
