TA-DA!


Well here is the big reveal of our new project and home in Scranton. It's a lovely three story in need of some major TLC. So I'm asking for some color opinions. Right now I'm leaning towards a flannel grey body with some very creme trim, and a lipstick red front door! Please offer your thoughts and some other ideas for color. Gigi looks so sweet and relaxed in her stroller. She has no idea what we are in for! I'll keep you posted.

Hello. Great house to make into your home. From what I have seen on your site you will make it wonderful. First thing I thought of when I first saw the photo was ...red door. So I totatally agree with that. Also if you plan on changing the windows you might put in longer windows on each side of the front door it will really open up that space. I think grey is perfect for the siding and maybe some gingerbread type trimmings will add a little character. You can also buy window cross piece kits which are great. Good luck and I hope you have fun with your project.

ooooh how lovely. What a wonderful project to sink your teeth into. Your colour palette sounds lovely. You have so much architecture detail to accentuate....which adds such great character and interest. I look forward to following your renovation !
