Houzz is the new way to design your home.
Need ideas for sprucing up Neo Victorian farmhouse.
January 20, 2014 in Design Dilemma
I am in Maine. White on white farmhouses are very common and I love them. My newly built house didn't quite have the oomph. I am aware of corbels and gingerbready type decorations. Not sure how they would look. Main issue is that it just looks bare. I've thought of black window boxes. I've thought of shutters. I don't care for shutters that much. I think painting grey or black around the windows would look tacky. Maybe not. Another thing is the shingles. They don't pop out until you get close. The railings will be painted in the spring and. Bushes planted. Need some ideas please. This is Maine and not San Fran or Montreal. The style is basic and not ostentacious. Like the people.
