A funny tale to share…
This home in our area ^, it was tan, tan, tan, tan. Tan siding, tan trim, no contrast. You drove past not even noticing the place.
Until the painters began. I passed by when they first started and several times after. When they were about half finished and you could compare old to new, I thought wow- this is stunning paint rework.
I noticed the owner outside one day, so I stopped to tell him how I’ve been admiring the new look. And asked if they worked with a designer and he said yes, my wife. She’s an interior designer :) Of course!
This photo does the look no proper justice, but in person the place just shines on the street. They even sprayed the outdoor lights a nice silver. I believe they were bronze before.
I could tell some love went into every shade. From the perfect stone white trim, to the grayed down blue/green. Kindred colorists we may be- I know a good one when I see it *
They took a little risk and it paid big. If you have the opportunity to repaint your home, explore new possibilities.
