what color is the exterior painted? I'm wanting to paint my home this color.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

The most traditional method of adding roses to your home is, of course, to plant a rose bush in the front yard. This welcomes people in to your yard and tells them that you like beautiful things. The home itself doesn't have to be feminine in design for this touch of femininity to work well.
Rugosa roses are a wonderful way to add some beachy style to your yard.

This is where I am right now. Except that weathervane blew off the roof last weekend and is currently stuck in the ground on the patio.
Erin Lang Norris added this to Weather Vanes to Crow About
A sailboat weather vane is a great addition to this small cottage. It's quick to enhance the beach-house feel and adds visual interest to the otherwise linear facade.
