a little pink house

the little pink house on the street, that one is ours! it’s not cute like a little doll house, more of a sun bleached salmon color that has been sloppily sprayed over with white paint.  needless to say, it needs a little love.

a little background on the casa… we purchased this gem last winter.  previously it was owned by some older lady who owned antique stores ( a lady after my own heart).  however she was a bit out there, and thought art was an old 70’s green washing machine that she proudly displayed in the yard. i found this old photo of house online, overgrown and in desperate need of some tlchouse old

here’s a photo of the house when we purchased it:

and after two very, very minor improvements here is a photo from this summer. new modern house numbers and a barn light ( not pictured). the casa has potential but man does it need a serious paint job.
house2here is some of my exterior inspiration for the future of our house… white, black and navy

black, white and a lotta vintage

This lovely home is the perfect combination of black, white and colorful accents! I am loving the clean and clustered feeling of the rooms. It’s all about the black floors and art in this home, your art should reflect you!

tips for an amazing, unique home:

1) Keep it simple

2) Add in very “you” pieces, make it kitschy! Your house should be a reflection of you!

3) Vintage is a must! Your home will be truly you, no others will be the same!

4) When in doubt, choose white. Not sure of the finish color to choose, select white… it keeps it fresh and modern and give you A LOT of room for vintage!

5) Clean lines, add in a few modern pieces!
