Home Edition: Curb Appeal

Here’s a picture of our new house before I get my hands on it.  I met with a designer last week to talk about exterior colours.  I was really struggling because the house is sort of an orange-burnt red.  I couldn’t figure out what colours to use to compliment it and give the house some real curb appeal. (Excuse the blue man in the photo.  That would be The Husband.)

I decided on the two colours below.  These should update the look of the house making it more modern.  They will also look awesome as the front of the house faces south – so we will get a lot of sun.

I’m changing out the front door for something more modern and adding shutters to my windows.

I’m still undecided on my light fixtures.  Help me out. Which one do you prefer?  Which one will look the most modern with the house?

Also note, I’m getting rid of the banister on the porch.  It will only have 2 columns.  This should give us space to add some chairs.

Tee-hee!  I’m having so much fun!

When we were doing the outside of our house, someone suggested printing a picture of it and then coloring it in and drawing all of the changes on the picture. It worked really well.
