Need front elevation help, shutters and trim
May 4, 2014 in Design Dilemma
We recently bought this 1940 home. We are trying to update the elevation. We don't want to paint the brick as so many of the ones around us have done that. We are thinking of adding shutters, but then realized they would not be architecturally correct as there is not enough room on the double hung windows. Any advice for trim work (wood work) to add to the elevation around the windows? We are changing the awning and repainting the trim (BM revere pewter possibly?)…would love a second color and any other thoughts on making the windows better. Sad about shutters and curious if there are ways to do it with double hung that doesn't look fake or cheap. Planning on hardware and proper mounting, but still doesn't seem right. Any advice GREATLY appreciated.
