I was driving down the street the other day and saw the exterior of this home out of the corner of my eye. I literally had to take it into reverse for half a block to do a double take.

The rest of the block was the same period homes one after the other, and they all pretty much blended together. I was in such delight to see how this home has been modernized in such a fun, simple and tactful way. Keep this lime green door in mind when considering making changes to your facade — It goes to show what a creative palette and a fabulous new front and garage door can achieve.
