Mid-Century Modern House Project Part One

I am starting a new stitching project that I would like to share.  This Mid-Century Modern house motif is from my Home Sweet Home pattern set.   

In planning my floss color palette,  I decided on browns, greens, turquoise and a touch of black.  

I did a little bit of stitching and the colors are looking really good together.

However, I think I need another bright color.  I don't think yellow will work because a yellow that is bright enough to stand out with the other colors might be too bright and would become a focal point.   Perhaps orange? 
I like all of these oranges and both of the butterscotch colors ... do you have a favorite?  Any other color suggestions?

I will keep you updated as I go along :)

Oh, this looks interesting! I like to colors you chose. I think the orange that is right over the door of the pattern is my favorite. I can't wait to see how this one stitches up!

I am sending this one with my Google name so I can get all comments on your posts by e-mail. But I am still the same "Darlene" that comments here.
