Draw Out Distinctive Details With Paint: After

Paint: Steve and Joann tested 18 paint swatches on the house before making their final picks: Sherwin-Williams's Garden Sage for the base color, accented with darker-green Meadow Trail, cinnamony Tanbark, and golden White Raisin. They did the front door and some smaller details in Carriage Door.
Porch: They salvaged all but one of the old columns and posts but replaced what Joann dubbed the "Alfred Hitchcock silhouette" balustrade on the balcony and the diamond-patterned skirting, which likely weren't original to the house, with more traditional woodwork in rot- and termite-resistant Spanish cedar.
