Part 2- the Painted Lady's Facelift

So, here's a quick re-cap:

[caption id="attachment_2025" align="aligncenter" width="500" caption="I chose to emphasize the sunburst details on the first floor and balance that colors with the rectangle shapes just below the roofline. If those upper shapes weren't painted to stand out, most poeple would never really look past the sunbursts- they're beautiful but there's so much more to see!"][/caption]

[caption id="attachment_2024" align="aligncenter" width="500" caption="Keeping the color plan simple can require lots of editing and thoughtful decision making before brushes ever hit the house. Here, painting the entire door, trim, and transom one color with the porch details in the trim color, opens up the space and makes a dramatic statement. Selecting one more color just for the ceiling panels really adds an elegant and finished look. The overall feel is airy, sophisticated and welcoming"][/caption]

[caption id="attachment_2027" align="aligncenter" width="500" caption="And I just couldn't be more happy with the outcome. Gotta love it when a plan comes together. Thank you, George for your amazing efforts and the work of your crew! The place looks amazing if I do say so myself. I'm like a proud mama putting my little stamp on this little old San Francisco Lady."][/caption]
