The Red Brick House
We live in a red brick house. While that lends itself to a traditional style, I am always on the look out for how I can add a touch of contemporary. A few years ago, we spent a good chuck of change on the front landscape blending natural stones with low maintenance greenery, such as; boxwoods, hydrangeas, hostas and others - we love how it softened the overall look. Today, many of our greens need trimming however, we’ll wait until the fall or early spring to tackle that project.
Our intensions are to replace the front door and garage door one day, but this past weekend we got to repainting them to give our curb appeal a little face lift. Here are some of the inspirational images that got my wheels turning.
Yes, we went black on the front door, and choose a shade of taupe for the garage door trying to blend it with the trim and make it disappear. I’ll share photos when we’re done. The paint we’re using is Behr Premium Plus Ultra, courtesy of The Home Depot.
