The Importance of Paint

May 16th, 2016

I’m coming to you today with a quick post on the importance of paint.  Paint is the most cost effective way to make a huge impact.  My greatest example is our exterior.  We repainted our home last summer and since then, three other homes on our street have gone with a darker scheme.

Here’s the “before” shot.  While it’s not bad, it’s certainly one thing: BORING.  We have beautiful exterior stone that was getting lost in a sea of beige.  We also had brass fixtures from the early nineties.  My major goals were to bring more contrast and to play up the best features.  Top it with some new sconces and Voila!

We got quite a few comments this weekend that the exterior was their favorite part.  All thanks to a can of paint!
