HELP WITH A NON GROSS COLOR
Our houses can't go to the gym to get a quick workout
and they can't trim their own shrubs
So when it comes to getting in shape
and creating a beautiful curbside look at your home
your house has to rely on you.

Yes, I'm as guilty as any of you...
I love to look at other people's homes, especially celebrity homes.
One of my favorite blogs is Hooked On Houses where you get to peek into beautiful celebrity
and non-celebrity and even fabulous movie set homes on a regular basis.
So, I thought I'd take you on my own little tour and share my guilty pleasure,
because I'm always amazed at how 'ordinary' celebrities turn out to be.

A few simple rules to choosing exterior paint color -
Consider the roof color when choosing your new color - Roof color should be darker than the house color - Make the door stand out with a darker or bright color - Accent the trim and architecture of the house with a contrasting or complimenting color - take into consideration size as a dark color will make a small house look smaller.
Sometimes subtlety is the order of the day. When white is wanted, it doesn't have to be boring, or even very 'white'. White, like gray or beige or blue, comes in many varieties.
