My House Remodel Part Two: Trim Detail, Exterior & Paint Color

Window Trim Detail 

I get questions about this topic more than any other, with the exception of the exterior material specifications. If there is any doubt in the expression “The devil is in the details” this window trim proves it. I had so many mock-ups made until the proportions felt right. It can seem like an insignificant detail not worth spending a ton of time on – a half inch here, there, but trust me, small details that are in multiple places pack a wallop of a punch in rounding things out. When we were under construction (5 years ago) there was little information to go on with regard to window trim for a modern yet traditional home. If you are starting from scratch or adding trim to windows that don’t have any, I hope this helps!

The horizontal piece at the top is 4.5″ W x 1.25″ D.

The vertical part on each side that goes to the sill is 3.5″ W x .75″ D.

The horizontal piece extends beyond the vertical piece by .5″ on each side.

Kitchen Cabinets & Island

The cabinets are hand painted (vs sprayed) in Benjamin Moore Revere Pewter. This is one of the best neutral all-around slam dunk colors in that has a creamy beigeness to it with a touch of gray. Perfect modern farmhouse color for walls, trim, cabinetry and exterior. The island is painted in Benjamin Moore Silhouette.

Exterior

As I’ve mentioned before here, this took for-EVER to get right. At first, there was a ‘fuzzy’ look to the boards and the batten (narrow vertical pieces) had really sharp corners that I wasn’t crazy about. I believe the material used was some sort of composite, but I don’t know the exact name. Here are the dimensions: Exterior paint color is Benjamin Moore White Dove.

Battens are 2.5″ W and the space between them (boards) is 9.25″. The battens extend outward by .75″

Also, I will do detailed posts on each area of the house in the weeks to come, but wanted to create one post for the most asked about details.

Some posts are harder to write than others. This is one….so rather than say much, I think I will just share with you, photos of the most beautiful weekend ever.

An after breakfast walk on the way to the beach and we found this amazing place for freshly caught and packaged fish. They ship too.

I didn’t photoshop the other people out of this picture. We really had the beach all to ourselves.

He wanted no part of his friends. So bugged.

Base camp for the weekend while we explored the nearby beaches and towns.

If cabins in the woods are your idea of romantic, this is your place.

This is the hot tub, which we had all to ourselves. Thank goodness, because we didn’t bring bathing suits.

The owners of the property have whimsical – and sometimes sort of odd – statues and signs throughout the woods that surround the cabins. This one was so sweet, I had to take a photo!

Absolutely no filters on any of these photos.

We popped into this place to take a look around since it’s considered to be one of the top 10 golf courses in the world, and ended up staying for lunch and massages.

This guy followed us as we walked through the golf course with one of our french fries he took from our lunch.
