A Painted House?
I love me some painted brick and when my mom decided that she was going to have her house painted I was all over it! She asked me to help pick some colors and my vision was a creamy white with sage shutters and a red door. The tricky thing about colors is that one person's sage is another's cucumber. The whole paint job was done in only days and now I am wishing that we would have slowed down, taken a deep breath and followed the steps I always follow when working on a project. So now that the house is painted and we've decided that, although it looks a million times better, something is still amiss. Lesson learned, now we gather inspiration. Here are some of my favorite painted houses in the area.
