HOME

denied his request, despite the tick-
ling gray mustache.
At Grandma's house, I received
unconditional love, always. It was not
that I did not get wonderful things in
my parents' home, too. I did. But at
Grandma's house everything was
done in such an enormous way
the rooms, the tables, the furniture,
the feelings, the number of people
everything was done on such a huge
scale. And Grandma would sit at her
table and look with great pride at the
family gathered around her and say
in Yiddish, "Ale fun meyn kerper
aroys gegangen (All of you have
come from my body.)"

House Colors

T

wo identical houses, side by
side, can look very different,
depending on the color of their
siding. A white house will seem
larger, while a house sided in a barn
red color will look smaller.
Colors also affect depth percep-
tion. A house with a pale blue siding
will appear to be set back farther
from the street than a house with a
"warm" yellow siding.
Colors have a profound effect on
how we see things. Light colors
enlarge the appearance of a house,
while dark colors reduce a house's
size visually. Warm colors — reds,
oranges and yellows — seem to ad-
vance toward you, while cool colors
blues, violets and blue-grays
seem to move away from you.
Homeowners considering re-sid-
ing their homes should consider the
many color options.
Contrasting trim colors, for exam-
ple, can intensify the good looks of
a house. Or, when windows and
doors are oddly positioned, using
trim and siding in the same color
helps mask the flaws.
Thirty years ago, white siding
dominated the residential scene.
Some 90 percent of all re-siding jobs
were white. Today, earth tones are
"in," and deep colors are gaining
ground.
