Yesterday my friend Michelle and I ran the MORE magazine NYC half marathon. A lot of friends knew I was doing a race this weekend and wondering if it was Boston. My thoughts and prayers go out to all of the people at the Boston Marathon today. We like to travel to different races and it is certainly a tragedy that is close to my heart. I tear up every time I think about it.
On a lighter note- on to Kathy's brick.
Here is a picture of the house. It is about 15 years old and is one of the older homes in the neighborhood. Most are done with cedar shakes and stone and much more in the Craftsman style. I feel that the house is fairly plain and the brick front portion really sticks out. The brick is a more rusty red and is really very pretty looking out from the front door and is pretty brick - just needs something, architecturally. What I was thinking is that I would paint the house SW 7507 - Stone Lion, possibly, and the trim SW 7506 Loggia. I would like to do wider shutters (so they look like they would cover the windows when closed) in board and batten and use hinges and shutter dogs. I was thinking about painting the shutters SW 7515 Homestead Brown. I am somewhat confident about the above choices but after that am really stuck.
