Its decision time, I have to chose a colour for the exterior of my house, the window sills, frames and the front door. The Thatch cottage itself is over a hundred years old, there are actually no foundations to the house and the exterior walls are so thick and are painted white. I have been looking for colour inspiration and ideas everywhere, I only pick colours that I never tire of. Decisions, decisions.
I adore the beach house in the film Nights in Rodanthe, the film stars Richard Gere and Diane Lane, the film tells the romantic story of the life changing and healing power of love. Its one of those films to watch for a cosy night in with a glass of wine, I have watched it several times now and still love it.
This is the house before they added the vibrant blue shutters,the house is located in the development of Mirlo Beach in Rodanthe, on the Outer Banks of North Carolina.
The house with blue shutters, I love this colour blue.
Before and After.
I also love softer tones of blue, this would be ideal for the old country style windows I have.
I am a big fan of pink, I love the femininity of the colour its sweet and charming.
Beautiful Cherry Blossom tree, the power of pink adds beauty to anything.
Loving this pink shop front.
Gentle Giant Green, I like strong tones of green, richer shades.
I have always admired this green dress, both the colour and the dress.
Rich green shop front.
