Good morning, chic readers! We hope you are having a fabulous Thursday.
There are so many fun ways to spruce your home for summer–starting with the exterior and the landscape.
along with beautiful with beautiful architecture like new homes in Charlotte, SC
We don’t know about you, but we love painted, wood houses.
On a home that’s a throwback to a simpler time or a fresh, new facade, a pretty painted exterior is a forever favorite.
In a pretty pastel,
A bold and vibrant shade,
Or a simple neutral,
Exterior paint sets the tone for what’s to come in a big, big way.
ARE YOU A PAINTED HOUSE LOVER?
