Curb Appeal

Curb appeal has never really been my thing.  Kind of related to my disinterest in gardens.  It's not that I don't like these things, it's just really, I'd rather put my money (and energy) into interiors than exteriors.

Last fall, we realized that the siding on our house had possibly never been painted.  So we had to do that.  Somewhere along the way, my husband decided to build a couple of modern adirondack chairs. And a few weeks ago, we had a photo shoot here, and I actually put a little time and energy into sprucing up the front.

The lesson?  It didn't take much to take our house from bland to charming.  (Well, except for the painting--that was time/money/work.)

Here's the house when we moved in-ish:



And now.






I love how the paint colors took the look from contemporary but sort of bland to more of a modern cottage vibe.

And nothing cheers up a front exterior like a pair of flowering trees!

Of course, now the leaves are changing and my pots will die.  But I will have the planters for next year.

Bottom line?

I'm a total convert.
