Out with the old and in with the new. We tore down the old pergola which was completely rotted, and about to fall down on its’ own at any moment, and the new one is up! And now we have to decide on the exterior paint color! Currently it is a dark brown and I am thinking we either go (cough cough) charcoal or ivory. Of course we painted our old michigan cabin charcoal and our current LA house charcoal so I am thinking it might be time to branch out a bit. You know take a walk on the wild side and go with white. haha
I did a quick quick photoshop job to get an idea of what the light would look like. Not my best rendering work but if you squint and move your head side to side you might get an idea of how it will look painted white. I kind of love it, but charcoal still knows how to pull my heart strings. What’s your pick?
We have a faucet(!) and the tile is grouted and appliances are in place.
We chose “snow white” grout, it’s a slightly darker white than the tile itself which creates a tonal pattern and with all the other textures going on in the space (the wood countertop, the rock on the walls, and the carved wood ceiling beams) I wanted to keep it subtle and modern. I am so in love with the matte white Fireclay tile and how it looks finished out with the grout. Now I am counting the days until we can finish this kitchen off!
Next on the to-do list here is install the doors & drawers which I painted already from SemiHandmade, install lighting, patch holes, hang a floating shelf and finish painting. We are getting closer, and I can almost taste it but in the meantime I need to pick an exterior color ASAP. Help a sister out… Ivory or Charcoal?
