    I loved all your posts on the porch re-do. You have a good sense of humor in the midst of decorating chaos and that’s a plus to get through it! The porch and shutters look wonderful too! I just wanted to state for the “decorating record”, that the stains they give you to choose don’t have to be the colors you finish with. They can be mixed.

    Looks like somtehing from Revenge TV series (probably Emily Thorne’s residence, but definitely beautified), so… Welcome to the Hamptons! 🙂

    It’s a beautiful porch! I could just sit there and not budge for days. The colors and shutters look great. We’re renovating a 1920s bungalow so we’ve had plenty of sagas of our own… it’s worth it though!

    I too LOVE your witty writing and your antics with your husband oh how familiar it sounds. Somehow I can’t help but feel sometimes you get a little natural heat in your house, the kind that doesn’t cost greenbacks and sticks around for awhile. As in a slow simmer

    The shutters are nice, not black, but still too dark. Lighten the up a bit and you will be fine. If you can’t stand the deck: paint it. Better still: have a few glasses and wait some months – you will not bother anymore.

    Striving for perfection is fine, but compromises make life easier, and in the end it’s just a painted house; if it still bothers you later you can change it. Believe me, I know what I am talking about: admiring Bauhaus, minimalism and ‘white’ as a color I live in an ‘Ikea blue & yellow’ house. I didn’t repaint the abode, but am planting a screamingly colorful tropical garden around the house. No worries any more and much mor time for a beer at the pool ?.

    I love your work. I’d say more but I’m at work and should probably get back to work. Anywho can I please get the name of the blue color that the body of your house is painted?
