Happy New Year!
Hope you had a great holiday. I love when a new year starts and you get a clean slate and can fix what you didn’t accomplish or do right in the last year.
Our home will definitely get done in 2016. Here are a a few Before/After pictures of the exterior that make me happy. Its actually getting done.
The terrace under the pergola had a long skinny bench at the end of it that was original to the 60’s structure. Instead of removing it I decided to widen it and make it a giant daybed.
After some custom cushions in a black and white Sunbrella stripe were done, it looked like a fun little boutique hotel.
The bench was widened about 20″ and the black and white striped now giant daybed frames the pergola nicely.
It also frames the view, kind of giving it a boutique hotel vibe.
I can now finish the rest of the area here and I can’t wait to throw a party…
This was the front of the house before.
It had old landscaping and was a hodge podge of old plants.
We painted the house white, the front doors blue and the eaves and windows black and new landscaping was done by Teryl Designs.
Box woods, camellia bushes and gravel around the olive tree. Now it all needs to grow, but it looks nice and neat.
The doorway before had small lanterns and everything was a cream color.
New black large lanterns, black door casings, blue door, new door mat. Now we just need potted plants.
This was the door when we bought it.
This is the front door now.
Its finally getting there!!
I’m ready to tackle this year, the house and all the new projects coming my way.
I hope you have a great 2016!
