As an aside, I still remember the owner of a country homestead who selected Williamsburg Blue. "Since I was a little girl, I always dreamed of being happy in a home with a blue roof," she said. When the fellows opened the pail of Williamsburg Blue, her eyes teared up. I thought she was being sentimental. Not at all. She told me she realized she had to leave her childhood taste in colors to the past. Just to make certain of her "adult" decision, we applied the first coat in Williamsburg Blue. Happily for all, she chose a Colonial Grey for her top coat. The lesson of this unexciting tale: roof color choice can change over time.
