It was love at first sight when the real estate agent showed us the house that became our home.
It's a simple craftsman styled bungalow. It has the approach, the lines, and the workmanship of a craftsman, but it was constructed in a humble fashion. Lots of pine, not a bit of mahogany.
It's been a long time since our home was painted. This is partially because we were burned so thoroughly by the folks who last painted it and partially because we've been focused on other things. But, we are ready now.
We're trying to figure out what color combination we want to live with for the next decade. While we have a genuine appreciation for craftsman colors, so many of them feel a bit too somber for us. James and I like color. Whatever our choice we know it will be a color that makes our heart skip a beat and bring a smile to our face every time we come home.
