Quaint-Yet-Chic Exterior

Tan trim (Valspar’s Lyndhurst Stone) and black shutters (Glidden’s Dark Secret) added polish to the brick exterior.

"We knew there was a charming place to call home behind all that brush, says Sherry Petersik, co-author of the popular blog, Young House Love. "We removed a ton of trees, planted grass seed galore, laid a new stone path to the door—which we painted "Fabulous Red" by Valspar—and upgraded the landscaping for a big transformation that still stuns the neighbors."
