What a thrill to work with YS Built and Elemental Design LLC on this amazing home in Clyde Hill-The design collaboration was so fun- The homeowners were delightful- The project as a whole had so many talented tradespeople involved.
I saw this little home today, Lila said we should walk home from the mechanic’s shop even though it was pretty far. She can always convince me that we need a good walk. Children are sent to us for our own good..
We walked past this little secret sweet home in a part of town not known for it’s aesthetic beauty, I love to see good design when I’m not expecting it. This little home is a good reminder that a couple of gallons of paint cost the same regardless of whether it’s a good color or not! If you are at a loss, send me a picture of your exterior and I will send you some colors to try.
C2 Blue Grotto & C2 Daffodil from C2 Paint could work to recreate the above palette.
During the summer months in Seattle, the flowers bloom and all is alive.
I’ve been noticing that the houses also are in full bloom!
The landscape has changed ~ all the houses that were dormant on the wet months have blossomed with their new coats of paint. All the exterior painting here is done in July&August- it’s a great show if you pay attention
Here’s one of mine that just blossomed today-
Another beautiful home designed by Whitney Architecture, built by Dyna Contracting.
The exterior colors were partially picked out when I arrived on this job, I just gave a quick ten minutes and re-picked the dark body color. Wish I knew they were going to paint them garage doors white, yikes. In my dream world those doors are made of wood. I think I will put wood garage doors on this house officially in my memory banks. There, I feel better.
So fun to contribute to the look of a local favorite street. When Roosevelt Vision Source asked me for help on their building, I was psyched. The street has some beautifully painted buildings in that vicinity and theirs looked, well, like a beige blob. We took some risks and jumped in with Merlot & Bluebeard by C2 Paint. The ladies at RVS really were visionaries!
