Progress Report: Curb Appeal

The exterior color scheme of our new house isn’t exactly exciting.  The brick and siding are various shades of cream to brown and the hunter green shutter and door color kept everything quite drab.  My sister’s suggestion when she looked at the house over Christmas with us was a red/navy combo.  I took a couple of months to mull it over and decided I really like the idea, so I picked up color swatches.

Over the weekend, I sanded and painted the front door.  I am really happy with the shade of red we chose.  It is Burning Bush by Olympic that I had color-matched at Sherwin Williams.  I haven’t gotten to the shutters yet – that will take more of a time commitment than the door, but I think I found the perfect navy for them – December Eve by Behr.

I think Habitual Rearranger fits me well because I am never settled on designs, colors, or placement of items in our home. I drive Bradley crazy sometimes, but I keep figuring out new and better ways of doing things! I am not striving to be profound or an expert on anything in this blog. It is simply a way to keep a record of all of my adventures - home and life - for me to reference and also for my loved ones to follow along. I am a born and raised Georgia girl. I don't think I would enjoy living anywhere except the south. Bradley and I spent six and a half years in our starter home and are now in our forever home, a 1970s traditional two story brick house. I love getting into all kinds of projects around our house, and I try to document all the dirty details here if for no one else than for me.
