A family in Oregon is blown away that a public survey about the new paint color for their house has gone viral on social media. The Landreth family recently combined a home improvement project for their Portland home with a school project about documenting data for their middle schooler, Grace. They painted five colors on the side of their house and created a QR code for people passing by to scan with their smartphones, which takes them to a Google doc where they can vote for their choice for the house’s new paint color.
They expected some locals to participate, but after a neighbor tweeted a photo of the project, it’s taken off. The poll has received thousands of entries from over 20 countries around the world. “Please help us decide by ranking the following colors for our house,” the survey explains of the numeric grading scale. “I being amazing and 5 being ‘I seriously can’t look at that color every day.’”
The shades the Internet users can choose from are: a muted “Rocky Mountain” brown, “Wild Orchid” purple, “In Good Taste” a slate blue, the turquoise “Blessed Blue” and “It’s Well” sky blue. So far, Twitter commenters seem to be going for the turquoise blue, but the poll is still open and you can vote here if you want to get in on the fun.
