Raise the Roof

I love taking quizzes, things like "what food would you be" or "what color is your home" or something. Anything.  I even want to sign up for that e dating that gives your personality matches, just so i could fill out all those components about myself.  I wonder what questions they ask and what answers you have to choose from. Don't think S would appreciate that, but whatevs.  

So the new man in town is the find your roofing color  quiz over at Owens Corning Roofing.  The result tells you what color combos would suit you and your roof best, and you get an alayzed "psychology of color."  My colors turned out to be orange and taupe (the ones i chose as one of my least favorites).  My psychology of color-i love that term- was pretty accurate (i am rather charming, energetic, and warm) except when it called orange fickle, and said it could be flaky.  Excuse me. In the words of Stephanie Tanner, "how rude!"  Yeah, it appears i just referenced Full House on my blog. 

The saving grace was my roof color, Summer Harvest.  It also suggested Cornucopia and Indian Summer....you know what this means.  Fall.  Fall and me are likethis, and even the color psychologist knows it.  Hurrah!

Love it! I am orange and beige... I agree, I am NOT flakey... where did they come up with that one? It was kind of fun to do the quiz anyhow.

Interesting idea! And BTW - I about snorted coffee out my nose with your Full House reference!

Hi, just had to stop by your blog when I saw its title. I love the look of a Cape Cod style home.

Selecting a roof color doesn't seem like a big decision until you have to do it. When we built our home our builder gave us the addresses of some of the homes he'd built so we could see how the roof color affected the total look of the home. It really does make a difference.

Funny post. I also quote "Full House" but it is usually Jesse's "have mercy" and I too am a lover of all things fall. I am going to become a follower of yours (thanks for already being my follower) when I get home (at work now pretending to work) so I can add a really cute picture of me (if one exists) other than that default blue haired person.

LOVE LOVE LOVE fall and fall colors too!!! Only bad thing about fall is 5 months of North Dakota winter follows!

Totally guilty of being a crazy Full House fan when I was younger!

Anyway, that quiz was kinda fun! It said I would use gray or brown which is probably accurate. While other colors are fun, I think I'd end up picking something neutral because it's such a big decision.
