Project: Exterior Updates

this spring and summer we are planning to focus on the outside of our house and have a few things planned...

1. we're changing the lighting and adding hanging lanterns instead of the ugly nipple lights (they're everywhere in - and outside - this house!)

2. we're reworking the plantings in the front of the house to make them more symmetrical, adding some sod where there are currently garden beds, and relocating some bushes to spots that need some greenery. although i'm a little nervous to see what has or hasn't survived after this ridiculous amount of snow melts.

3. the biggest change that we're making is adding shutters! i'm definitely most excited about this one - it's going to have a huge impact!

i pinned this image and even though it has a different feel than our house, i love how it mixes styles.

the planters, the lighting, even the doormat, it all just works perfectly together. anyone else have plans for the outside of their house? it's helps me to think about this stuff since it's about 18 as a high these days. :(
