before & after

i've dreamed of having a pink front door since seeing annie selke of pine cone hill's amazing home renovation in house beautiful. the transformation she did is stunning. annie took an ordinary ranch style & upped the style quotient. the before had shutters that didn't fit or belong, windows that are much too small for the home, a cheesy powder blue & white color scheme. basically this modern ranch had a cottage look applied to it. annie removed the silly shutters & cheesy porch, she installed amazing windows & painted the outside a yummy brown. the pink front door is like the house's scarf, just a bit of color to add some punch. dreamy.

i love exterior transformations! i've been toying with the idea of making that a regular feature here. i see so many buildings around houston that have such amazing potential. hhmmmm...ideas;) have you seen any interesting exteriors or remodeled your home's exterior? i'd love to see pictures!
