Case Study 4: Unifying Paint
Painting the siding and brick one color makes the house look statelier, an effect emphasized by the Georgianesque palette of gray, black, and white. The homeowners chose a low-sheen exterior paint, which attracts less dirt and plant debris than one with a matte finish.
New posts placed just at the sides of the portico replace the view-obstructing originals, letting the double doors and bay window take center stage. Three inexpensive posts grouped together have the visual heft of one large column, but cost less and create a more open feel.
