I love being a passenger while driving! Gives me the opportunity to discover Halifax homes. On my many trips up and down Connaught Ave. I became familiar with a certain house. A traditional beauty which has been through a couple reincarnations. Imagine my delight when I arrived there to help choose the new exterior paint colours!
Check out the changes over the last decade...
Originally a Plain Jane, the owners decided to add some balance and interest with a new veranda, arch detail and a spiffy paint job in 2002. The changes gave the home a welcoming presence on the street.
When the time came to freshen up once again in 2014, they called in backup! They were looking for the right colour and it was my pleasure to push them right out of their comfort zone.
Fearless! They loved the idea of accenting the veranda wall with a bright pop of Benjamin Moore’s Pale Avocado.
The finished product may cause an accident. Keep those eyes on the road!
Expert Tip: Exterior Paint Colours are difficult to choose because of differences in natural light. Always go a few shades darker than you think you may need to be on the safe side!
