The Loft Renovation Exterior | Help pick a paint color!
I am sharing the exterior of the Loft House Renovation today! It’s certainly interesting, right?! Before we bought this place, I would always look at this house from our Duplex rental across the street and wonder what it’s story was. When it came on the market and we saw the inside, it was clear there was so much potential. We knew it just needed a little love…and a lot of paint. Now I need your help, what color should I paint the exterior?!?!
The Idea Home
Let’s rewind a little… you might remember that after we bought the house, we found out that it was called “Milwaukee’s Idea Home”. It was design by UW Milwaukee engineering students as a prototype for a sustainable home. The home was made of 12 precast concrete walls that were poured in Browntown and then transported to the Walker’s Point neighborhood in Milwaukee. How unique is that?!
Now, onto the color mockups! First, the front door. You know that unique door paint is almost my signature at this point, i.e. The Sage Home and The Blue Door Duplex. I played around with a lot of different colors, but ultimately decided it needed to be wood in order to warm up the concrete exterior. The nice advantage of a wood door is that it will work well with any exterior color! Also, I’m feeling confident that all the trim should go black and cover up the beige. Now the color options!
Note: These are not the actual names of the colors, just trying to pick a direction and then I’ll start sampling.
