It’s been 6 months since we closed on our new house! It’s been a half of a year filled with insane demo days, many construction delays, hours upon hours of choosing every detail and pure joy seeing the results of our labor of love. I cannot express how excited I am to start revealing the results of this project with you! To start, I am sharing the front exterior of the house (remember… it was pink?!).
Here are the images I gathered as inspiration for the exterior update. I knew from the beginning that I wanted white with dark trim. My husband was skeptical, but trusted my judgement. You know I love black and white everything, so the house was no different.
We had our painter do some sample areas on the back of the house and decided that true black was just too much for this style home. We decided on a rich, dark brown instead for the trim, front door and garage doors.
What We Did:
Exterior Body Paint: Dunn Edwards Droplets DEW381
Exterior Body Trim: Dunn Edwards Weathered Brown DEC756
Front Door: Black Door Handle/Deadbolt, Door Knocker
Lighting: Black Post Lights, Coach Light, Pathway Lights, Palm Tree Spot Lights
Hardware: Mailbox, House Numbers
Landscape: Repaired Fountains, Added Bougainvillea
Here are the before & after images, so you can compare…
What a difference paint can make, right?
I’m so happy with how it turned out and I hope you like it to!
Next up? I’ll be sharing our new beautiful kitchen later this week!
