The flip is starting to look like a house! Of course, I don’t have any new and improved photos for you right this very second so you’ll just have to take my word for it. :)
Fun things are afoot – like picking paint colors.
For the interior of the house, I’ve always wanted to try all white – white ceilings (duh), white trim, and white walls. All the same shade. A mistake or an amazing look? Only time will tell. Hopefully it will look as great as some of these images that I’ve pinned:
In our flip, all the contrast will be provided by the rich wood floors, gray cabinetry and tile. I don’t think we’re going to stage this house so hopefully the “all white” look will still look amazing without furniture. Fingers crossed.
I’ve thought about painting the trim a pale gray instead of white, like the photos below, but I think that might be too risky for a flip. Thoughts?
As a reminder, our kitchen cabinets will be light gray, as will the vanity in the guest bath. The master vanity will be stained wood in a medium tone.
We need to figure out paint for the exterior of the house, too! Remember, right now it looks like this…
…and that just won’t do.
We replaced the old cruddy aluminum windows with new white windows, we will be replacing the frilly ironwork with painted cedar posts, and we fixed the siding and flat roof. Oh, we also got a new door!
Me likey. It should be installed this week sometime.
We’ve planned to paint the house from the beginning, and I’ve always envisioned it being painted a soft shade of gray. With a light pale turquoise door. Sound nutty? Here are some examples below:
I think it will go well with the whole “modern classic” vibe we’re trying to achieve with this flip. Fresh and interesting, but not too crazy.
What do you think?
