trending now in exteriors
Now that you've finished your spring cleaning and can finally exhale, let's focus on the exterior of your home. If you're on the fence with whether to stay in or sell your home, we would highly encourage you to consider exterior renovation.
Giving your home an exterior renovation will make you feel as if you've gotten a new home and will skyrocket your curb appeal if you do decide to sell. With this in mind, there are endless possibilities to updating your home's exterior, so here are a few ideas we've narrowed down to stew over for classic, modern and unique tastes. As always, we can make all of these beautiful ideas come to life, just give us a call.
We are big fans of the clean, pure appeal of an all-white home. It will always be a classic look that screams welcome and stands out. Make this even more appealing by adding natural wood details, and mixing your materials. An all-white home boasts a minimalist yet modern appeal. This look translates beautifully on the inside, too.
Shades of Grey
We've seen a few all-black homes done beautifully (Scroll on for more on that) but if black is too risky for you, toning it down can be just as striking. Playing up different shades of grey on your siding and trim will add more dimension to your exterior, making it the star of your neighborhood. Darker shades of grey are great for modern style homes as it give it more of a structured, amplified look. See more details of this beautiful Seattle bungalow here.
Cream and Greige
Since we all know that cream is queen when it comes to anything home-related, let's talk about Greige. Greige is the latest trend in exteriors and interiors alike. It's the love child shade of beige and grey that is both easy going but sophisticated. When paired with cream, it'll make it seem as though your home was shipped here straight from the South of France, which is why "Oui" really love this combination. It'll make your HOA swoon and ask why your neighbors can't be more like you.
This doesn't necessarily mean black, (while we love the look above) you can surely get a toned down version. For a less dramatic look, opt for a rich navy with cream trims and accents and contrast with some beautiful, luscious landscaping- classic without pushing the envelope.
So now that you have some ideas, send us some of your favorites! We love seeing work from "real life" too.
