Spring is on its way, although the recent cold snap would seem to deny this fact. In any case, my thoughts keep drifting to the improvements we want to make on the exterior of our home. The outside of our house has so much potential, and I find it charming as-is. But it's also crying out a plea for a little bit of landscaping and character.
The above photo is from the listing for our property from a couple of years ago. (Hence not our decor on the porch) and shows pretty much what the house looks like now.
The question is...what color do we want to paint the shutters and door?
The current plan is to do a brown front door with green shutters and door frame.
I'm curious to know what the house would look like if we added shutters to pretty much every window. So of course I had to Photoshop that too. IF we ever did this many shutters on the house, it'd be a far way off. But it's easier to play with accent colors this way.
But green isn't the only color I'm pondering. How about....
I want to try to dance on that line between creating a house that really stands out from the neighborhood in a way that says "ooh neat" and not "eeeh yikes."
