Home Exterior Ideas
June 20, 2013 in Design Dilemma
I am very stuck on what I can do to the exterior of our house. I feel like it is very 'blah' and I was hoping to possibly do some painting or design on a budget that would really make a difference. Since this picture i have added red flower pots on either side of the door with some vibrant green vines and pink and white flowers. I was hoping to possibly put some type of welcome sign around the front door and possibly update the house number color and lights. I'm just stuck. My husband went out and bought a new kick plate and knob that were a blackish brown and i'm not quite sure that was the right color. Help!

Larger columns will make a big impact. Bronze HW your husband bought is trendy & fine to use.
Also some more updated house numbers to go with the new HW & larger lights.
Not the kind of numbers with the old-fashioned slanted background please!

You can paint your steps with a nice dark gray concrete paint too. I like your blue door, but a fresh coat of paint in any color (red or blue) is always a pic-me-up. PLEASE - NO welcome sign - nice sentiment but tacky.
