before and after: back of the house

here's a fun little progress report on the back of our house. Those horrible can't see ish through them ski lodge windows had to go. We decided on these huge, pretty Pella windows that open like french doors, AND we decided to paint the house. in the same week.. weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

I was testing paint colors under that left window. We chose Benjamin Moore's decorator's white for the outside of the house, and super white for the trim and fence. Having a color blind husband helps... he didn't have much to say about it.

the colors up close. Decorator's white is second from the right on the top row, and super white is directly below it. It's funny how yellow certain whites can end up looking in daylight.

windows in... this made such a huge difference inside, and completely changed the color of our living room (for the better) because of all the light.
