We knew from the start that we wanted the exterior to be dark. We are both drawn to homes that have a moody sensibility. Actually pulling the trigger is altogether a different experience.
I started wondering if white was best. But it’s so predictable. We’ll save that for a beach place. The house is grounded in earthy mountain stone, harvested in the late 1930s, so a dark body seems fitting for our little Chattanooga cottage. Initially I imagined an Olivey/Mossy green. We landed on Sherwin Williams Urbane Bronze. It’s dark, very dark. I’ve seen many interior applications, but almost no exterior ones. So far, it has a great time that changes depending on the light and time of day.
Watching the cars slow as the paint process begins makes me smile.
More photos to come as the project progresses. But find phase one, first coat snapshots attached. We have some great elements in the works to give the house some great curb appeal.
