Period Colors

I found a website that has period colors for the different styles throughout the past since Colonial Times. My period is a combination of Colonial, Federal, and sometimes Early Victorian. I am aiming for Federal to be the most pronounced.
This site has a good selection of period colors that can help guide in the choosing, which is always the tough part. just scroll down to Historic Colors

A House Style

Finally I have chosen a style the house shall echo, and that is Federal. The house already has many elements that are Federal such as its symmetry, simplicity and small porch. We plan on adding two long but skinny windows that would go next to the front door and then change the door to a solid one. Also we plan on adding shutters and some architectural details that would reflect the Federal style.
