Hey everyone! Happy Sunday. Hope all is going well with you. Such crazy times, hoping and praying it all ends soon.
I thought I would share a recent online exterior color consultation that came out really nice:
I will send you more photos with angles showing the siding, the front door area, and a pic of the brick with white paper beside it by mid-day today. And, yes, we are keeping the brick as is to minimize the amount of painting. I am looking for color suggestions to cover – trim, siding, garage door and front door.
I’ve been struggling with this because my mom wants the siding to be grey (it’s her house & I’m helping her), but I just can’t see it. I also don’t want to do a “beige” because I just don’t like “beige” (I think it tends to look dated), although I do like “tans”. I’m open to doing something more vibrant on the siding to really make the house pop, but I definitely need a more neutral palette option too since that is what my mom is expecting.
And, just for context – there is a blue house right next door, and a dark grey house two doors down (so, don’t want to look like those). Other houses around are either just pink brick or off white.
The existing brick was super bossy to work with! I knew right away we would have to work with a strong paint color to not be overwhelmed. We put together a couple concept boards to see how well the colors worked with the brick:
And the best is getting compliments like this from the client:
It’s the prettiest house on the block! You did a great job!!! Thank you!
You are so welcome! A challenge, but glad you and your mom are happy and it all worked out well.
Have a great week everyone!
