Remember last year when i did the post about listing my house for sale? And everyone was like, oh, what are you thinking, the market's tanking, the sky is falling, banks are NOT giving out mortgages to buyers, you're SCREWED, again, WHAT ARE YOU THINKING??!?
Yeah, ok, you win.
SO. Now that it isn't selling I can really HAVE SOME FUN. But where to start?? I'm going to post a different room with each post - and let you guys tell me what you see going in there. Or if my ideas rock or if they just won't work.
If i had to define my style - it's coastal living - which is appropriate since i'm in Florida. INLAND, but Florida. Also, i lean towards cottage - not formal, not tuscan, not french country. Simple, coastal style.
Should we start with the front door? Here is a pic of my 'cottage'. I really don't like the color. ick. I LOVE the line of the roof. I hate my WHITE front door. I don't like the "Florida vernacular" style - but i think i can 'fix' it. LOL.
Here is a pic of house, somewhat similar (if you tilt the computer on it's side and then look) that has shutters - making it somewhat coastal/mediterranean. I LOVE that. I think i can do that on the right window. My windows are slightly arched - but they make those plank shutters arched too - so that would be kind of cool, no? As far as the color of house - i REALLY love the idea of a pale PALE blue (kind of a muddy blue) and brown shutters.
So, tell me, my virtual friends - yes, no, different ideas?
I'll make art out of anything!
