most people who know me don’t realize that I love color, I know shocking, I almost never wear it nor is it anywhere to be found around the house, but I think that it is something that should be chosen carefully and therefore I feel it is best to have a large simple canvas that a color choice can really exist in. yada yada yada and so that brings us to the exterior of the house, which is currently a horrendous patchwork of browns, glossy and flat, warm and cool, all commingling on our cedar shingles. Casa de Meadowbroke is a “cape cod” style house that has a walk out basement, which means that the bottom half is painted white brick and the top half is menagerie of 30 years of spot painted shingle, which gives the illusion of a very ominous house sitting atop a big white cloud. So one of our bigger projects this summer will be painting the shingles, we’re thinking an 18% grey definitely on the cool side with black shutters, white trim around the windows AND a yellow door.

there is a house in the neighborhood with very similar paint colors and I just love it, but I think it works because it is a Victorian style and totally looks like my dream dollhouse from when i was 4


in love with this in everyway!
