These are our existing colors, starting to think "why mess with a good thing" // Colonial Revival Home in Filoli Carriage House (body); Du Jour (trim), from Valspar Paint. The wood entry door is finished with a walnut-color stain.
Larger windows on colonial facade. Exterior of this remodeled, light-filled colonial home I love this redo of a colonial style home from This Old House Magazine March 2012 issue. LOVE the use of gray as an interior color!
Accenting this grey house with black/dark shutters is a perfect contrast! The shutters really add some character and give the home a real pop! Now our grey house needs these dark shutters to go with our white trim!
