Fresh white

Nothing like a new coat of fresh white paint.
Remember this cottage in red, well, what do you think?
Should we encourage "The Gardener's cottage" to paint it white and add a zippy black and white awning? What doth thou say?

This could be a whole new direction for you - recreating our homes so that we can take the leap to make big changes! Love the white and awning!

Yes, not that I don't love the red, but white would be cool! xo

Reggie Darling said...

For many homeowners, white is the default paint color of choice. By adding the zippy awning, though, you have made it fresh and charming. I vote "Yes!" but only if it comes with that awning...

Best,

Yes!! I agree with Carolyn from The Buzz, that you could do this feature once a month (or once a week!); re-envisioning stunning spaces into even-more-sublime looks. Beautiful work. :)

What doth I say?? I say "rut-row"!!! Janet has wanted her red house "white" for a very long time and I think this charming painting is going to put her right over the edge!!! The b/w awning is the perfect accessory!

Oh, I have to say, I am REALLY loving the white with an awning. I guess it's fair to admit, my house is white, so I'm not exactly partial!

Beautiful job, Patricia!!

Yes this house looks great in white with the
handsome awning. When I look at your wonderful
home portraits I check the details--the curtains in
the windows and the birdbath with a cardinal
further brightening the image.
It's just PVE's personal touches!
So doth I say,
