Our house has gone through a lot of changes over the years. Every year we take a step back and look at what we could upgrade or renovate to add curb appeal.
During COVID we had a lot of time to reflect on our home and made some rather large enhancements.
The first three most dramatic changes were the removal of the large Beech tree that blocked the front of our home as well as an oak tree in the front yard. We replaced the oak with a magnolia tree and new garden. Lastly we painted the exterior of our home using a similar beige base but brighter white trim and a blue door.
We loved the new openness but decided to cut back our shrubs and overgrown plants so the entryway could truly be more visible from the street and allow for a more inviting streetview.
Lastly we replaced the front porch decor, which I like to do every few years. It is one of my favorite places to decorate for the seasons. I found this great bench at Target and a few new pillows and it made a HUGE difference.
