Happy Friday, y’all :-)
I finished the Color Lovers room makeovers and wrote the post earlier this week.
Did you take the 10 blog Color Lovers tour? If you haven’t and would like to, here is the link: Color Lovers Room Reveal
While I am enjoying taking some time off, I came upon this photo of a lake house. I have been collecting inspiration photos of house exteriors to come up with a color scheme for my house that I want to eventually paint. This one is my favorite.
Here is my house before it was painted and shutters added. It doesn’t have any white trim and I think that is what I miss. I like white trim on a house. It makes the architectural features, pop! The siding, gutters, and the trim on my house are all painted the same color.
The colors fit well in the lakeside setting, but I want to add more interest. I am thinking of adding shutters to the upper doors. Probably in the same color as the railing.
This exterior color scheme of this house is very similar to mine. The cedar shakes add an old and rustic appeal. I love the metal roof. Funny thing, this house is in South Carolina, too.
I didn’t keep the green color. Instead I painted the house a khaki color.
You can see all the details and what I ended up doing to the exterior of the house.
…finished reading, Paris Letters
I really enjoyed it and just started the author’s new book. A Year in Paris.
It is a different kind of read from the first, but as I read, I learned more and more about the City of Light that I never knew.
If you find you like her art as much as I do, you can see it here, It’s affordable!
It is summer. Do you have a bucket list of travel destinations? I do, I look forward to going, here someday. Have you been?
Could you Do This? I think maybe by myself I could, but not sure about doing it with children?
Do you get enough of this? I have been feeling Number 14 on this list a lot lately.
