Hello, hello! Molly now. While Erin is spending time with her cherished Emma and Henry, I( along with the rest of the team) am working on some amusing material here for you all to enjoy, so let’s get to it…
As Erin mentioned during the early days of social distancing, we were taking on a few additional e-design campaigns this spring. A neighbourhood blog book contacted out to ask for help selecting a paint color for the exterior of her home, and knowing how challenging hitherto impactful this can be, we thought it would make for a great before/ after for the blog!
Let’s start with the before 😛 TAGEND
As you can see, they have a beautiful garden and the house had so much possible, but it was looking a bit dated, and we know that making a big change can be so daunting. The patient caused us know she was hoping for a traditional New England look, and preferred light, blue-ish grays, white-hot, dark blue and black. Generally, she demanded something classic and timeless that would age well, but wouldn’t look like every other house in town.
Based on this, Erin and Eliza put together various complexion palettes for the client to choose from. Eliza even satirized up a few schemes to make it easier to imagine 😛 TAGEND
It’s really knotty to get these right on a computer screen( even for a Photoshop Wizard( TM) like Eliza ), since so much depends on time of day, sunlight, angle, etc ., so we always propose measuring out emblazons. And that’s exactly what the client did…
After much deliberation, they eventually moored on BM Cape May Cobblestone on the shingles, BM White Dove on the trim and BM Black Tar on the doors& shutters. According to the client,” We tried out probably 12 greys and had such a hard time but in the end, I’m from Philadelphia so Cape May( close to Philadelphia) won out! And it turned out great. I particularly adoration the Black Tar because it’s dark, but has a bunch of white-haired to it, like a graphite type colour .”
Like a wheeze of fresh air! We are thrilled with how this came out, and hope that this before/ after has inspired you to take the plunge on a big change you’ve been debating. In the meantime, I wanted to share a few of Erin’s ideas to spruce up the exterior of your residence without the outlay of a full modernize( some of the links in the older uprights might not work- feel free to explain with any questions and I’ll find a permutation for you !)…
Finally, thank you to everyone who submitted their main office for the next Style Solutions! Keep an see out for the specific characteristics by Allison next week. We’ll is being done more of these in the coming weeks, and I’ll make sure to announce on Erin’s Instagram if we’re looking for anything in particular.
