Our House is Being Painted

The painters showed up Saturday morning.  I impulsively hired them wanting to change the exterior of my house.  The number one comment we get when someone visits our house for the first time, is that they weren't expecting our house to look like it does based on how it looks on the outside.  It was pained a very bland, beigey yellow, that had faded over the years.  The furniture on our porch was very traditional looking and the brown, ceramic octagonal tiles are not doing anything for our curb appeal.  We redid the whole interior of our house and didn't touch the front of our house...AT ALL.  That's about to change and I am so excited.  I obviously have pictures, but haven't uploaded them.  So for now, I will leave you with my color choices.  All the paints are from Sherwin Williams.  The walls will be Pure White.

 The columns will be Gauntlet Gray.
 The door will be Decisive Yellow.
I would love to actually change my door to look something like this, but for now, I will take the color.

I have a bunch of ideas to improve our curb appeal. Including new pots, furniture, door mat, and maybe one day...new tiles.  It's just a matter of convincing the hubby that this is a great idea.  I'll post pictures soon, hopefully the weather holds up.

Ohh! I love this color combination.

I am a huge grey fan and I love pop colors with it. Can't wait to see it!
