Toning Down Exterior for a More Traditional Look

Postby Charlotte88 » Thu Jan 24, 2019 8:53 pm

Hi all, I’m hoping you can give me some suggestions to tone down & make the exterior of this more traditional please. It’s a bit bold & messy for me at the moment. I’d be interested in any ideas, short term & cheaper initially. But long term more expensive ideas are welcome too. Thank you

Its very hard to tell if the windows and cladding are plastic or not, if they are you stuck with the black if there wood I would certainly change them to a lighter colour. The front door green is too dark, and white walls are so plain.
I would look on the farrow and ball paint charts and look at the heritage colours, you could choose the colours from there range and get the colour mixed at a trade decorating centre in a cheaper brand of paint.
