For one thing, I really, really hate the color the exterior was painted. But with a clay roof and the recent paint job, an exterior re-do is kind of out of the question. Until recently, all of our focus has been on the interior, unpacking, painting, ect, but now that I finally have time to think about the outside, it's a bit depressing. What do you do with a color you really don't like? So, needless to say, I have been searching high and low for something that will inspire me to work with the house, shutters and yard... and then, I found this on the incredible Habitually Chic blog... Pretty in Provence... and it was oh, so pretty! Take a look, these shutters and surrounding gardens are just beautiful. So this is my new inspiration and guide... I'll keep you updated! I'm trying out different colors on the shutters today. Enjoy!
