2023 April 6   Naples Modern House with White/Grey Pallet ( click here)    some think we can paint our villas white and be modern -Yes there is a design trend to contemporary houses which are currently TRENDY but they have the opportunity to start with a clean slate without existing colour contraints - Yes  There is an opportunity to freshen up our villas  look but we need to be symapthetic to existing contrainst of BROWN roofs-Brown Pavers BROWNISH  Brick -BROWN lamp post amd mail boxes - just painting all the wood and trim and doors monochrome white will not make our Villas modern and  will clash with existing brown pallet.Our Villas are examples of excellent design  and excellent design stands the test of time.

2023 Nov 23  Today I arange to have part of my Villa painted in softer warmer tones from what the HOA Board is encouaging property owners to vote for being stark all monotone white with no trim color..here are pics of just completed proposal..intial reaction from neighhbors has been very positive( Pic A)  ( Pic #1) ( Pic #2) ( Pic#3) (Pic #4) ( Pic #5

2023 Dec 3  I visited the Villas of Pelican Bay again for about the 6th time ..to me it was apparent that their  paints scheme was far more attractive.. being warmer with slighly differet trim color ....than what VOPS Board are asking owners to vote for ..if you have not already voted..I woud encourage you to drive to Villas of Pelican Bay- 8 minutes away - and take a look and try to imagine how it compares to monotome stark white...(click here for entrance sign) (click here 2 tone) ( click here) ( cliick here) ( click here Natural Linen White Trim
