IT'S ALL IN THE DETAILS

blanco bungalow in long beach california

Um. Side note, my house was just posted on @SunsetMagazine 's Instagram! I literally just died and went to heaven!  And it's not even finished in this photo!

Time to refinish the door and paint the window trim, but we still can't decide on a color.  Need your help! Originally I wanted a really dark brown, almost black but now it's seeming a little too trendy, and I like how light and bright it is.  I'm thinking either a terra cotta (pot color) or just white and let the plants be the pop of color.  What do you think?  Also, I feel so guilty right now, I photoshopped the cement because it looked so terrible!  I would love to cover in cement tile, but that's just not in the budget right now.  So cement stain or stencil is going to be our jam. 

I would love to hear your thoughts on all!  PS: I'm loving what @arrowsandbow did with their Spanish stencil porch, just don't know if it'll be too busy.

Look forward to hearing from you!
