Outside, Tim and Wendy Hogan's 1926 bungalow was drab but in relatively good shape. Even so, thanks to Oregon's cool, wet weather, it took two and a half years to transform the exterior and the overgrown yard. With Tim, whose dad was a woodworker, handling the construction and Wendy on design, they turned the fixer-upper into a high-wattage charmer.Paint:
Wendy wanted the colors to pop, so she steered clear of neutrals and went with a custom-mixed Sherwin-Williams
green for the siding and brown on the trim, then spiced up the earthy hues with a splash of Benjamin Moore
's Caribbean Blue Water on the stoop risers and a bold citrus, similar to Behr
's Orange Burst, on the entry door.
