Neon stucco? Plaid trim? Polka dot doors?
But Westchase is considering mixing up the spectrum of acceptable house colors for the community.
A Westchase Community Association subcommittee has been working with specialists from professional paint companies to amp up and modernize the deed-restricted color selections.
Earth tones and darker shades are in demand as the Easter-egg pastels of the past are fading in popularity.
"I anticipate that is probably where you're going to have some of the discussion, whether that is a good or a bad thing, " said association president Brian Ross. "There was a broad effort to try and get as much individual resident input as possible."
There are currently two poster boards of color swatches at the Westchase Swim and Tennis Center on Countryway Boulevard - one showing the current colors, the other showing proposed changes.
Homeowners can stop by and check out the colors through the beginning of June.
Westchase village representatives likely will vote on the changes at the June 12 meeting.
"It's the same as just about any other guideline or covenant that we have, " Ross said. "The intention is to try to promote community and individual property values and stability. I think it's time-tested."
