Hi Trevor

I am a Period Restoration Specialist and deal

with a lot of Old Homes. Your house is truly

a gem and you want it to stand out. White

is usually the old standard for all the trim work , window and door frames as well as the fine trim on the column bases. Then the Main wall color you should choose from Benjamin Moore's great selection of Historic Color collection. Blues , Greens, Yellows. Have fun

I'd love to see the finished product.

Hi there,

From first sight I would stay in the neutral family, using a Whale Bone for main areas and Marshy Habitat for small gables or off sections of the home.

Good luck!
