Tropical exterior color scheme

Well, the weather has been fabulous these past few weeks. So I got antsy and decided to paint the whole front of the house myself. I did get some help from my oldest son Nolan one of the days. And my daughter helped a bit too.
I still have lots of work to do. But here are a few progress shots.

My inspiration for the color scheme are the colors in these colorful banana trees. Like this one.

New Window Trim

Well since we have 2 new kitchen windows we had to get creative with trim around the new windows. Previously, we had shutters around the window and some funky angled wood pieces. Since our new windows are smaller. We had to cover up the siding that had be removed and filled in. So I came up with a more formal look. Now I am super anxious to paint the whole house. To clean up all the paint differences where the old shutters were.

I want to paint the main color of the exterior of the house a dark green with a lil green in it.

Here is one of the color combos I am liking right now.
