… you seriously must do something to make that lemonade.

The lemon yellow has got to stay for at least the next little while (aka one of us wins the lottery).

B has been playing around a bit with some exterior options… things we can do that are far less expensive then replacing lemon vinyl, that is.

We like the concept of a darker grey trim and a bold color for the front door.  We also have a small porch to think about and a new exterior light fixture on the shopping lists.

So, what do you think?

 Coral vs Turquoise Door:

The trim on both of these I think appears a bit light due to the sun shining directly on the sample house.

(note, this is not our actual house.  These were done using the handy dandy and super easy Sherwin Williams Color Visualizer.  ALSO to be noted… when you use color visualizer and press print scene, you are given a ten dollar coupon to be used at your local Sherwin Williams.)

[…] Time to start a new feature around here we’re going to call Lemon House Loves.  These are products that we either have, and well, love, or things we’ve spotted around the web that look especially groovy. And who knows, maybe we’ll buy them, try ‘em out, and do a follow up review post. We thought it would be fun to share some of the things that we have or would incorporate into the day to day life of our lil bungalow. {Click here for why we call it our lemon house}. […]
