Keeping It Neutral

Cote De Texas had a wonderful write up on smallish homes that are affordable and stylish in her real estate area. She showed many and gave great detail to each, a must read really. There was one house that really peaked my interest...










Homes like this are very typical in my area, but are still yet to be upgraded and refined. The price points are low which makes it perfect someone like me. The miracle of paint, nice furnishings and good landscaping makes this home very doable. I am sure the kitchen cost a pretty penny, but when the price point of the home is very low and you may have money to spare this can be done to add a bit of luxury. I believe this home is a mere 1500 square feet, but with the neutral palette it makes it feel much larger, well that or great photography. This home would suit me to a tee and one day I hope to leap at a chance to redo one of my own. Now to just get my hubby on board for such an undertaking.

that was a great post, and a great house. I was hanging on every word -- there were some great take-away's -- especially for a ranch-owner like me.

and yes, I'm thinking a wide-angle lens definitely helped open it up a little for the real estate listing!

After living in a tiny Hong Kong apartment for a year now, I want a home so bad! This one would be perfect.

Simplicity is key! I love the palette and it does seem so much larger than 1500 square feet.
Serene, elegant and nice to come home to!

No kidding about much larger. I wouldn't have imagined it was 1500--what a difference lighter colors makes.
