Curb Apeal


Many times, small changes can make a huge impact in a space.  In this case I have been wanting to update the exterior of our house with new lights and house numbers.  Our home is an East Coast style row house with some colonial detail.  Inside our home I decorate with mostly traditional elements with a hint of modern.  I decided to lean a bit more on the modern side with my exterior choices for the lights and numbers.


Two simple changes and I feel like they made a huge difference.  Do you like my modern approach to an otherwise traditional home? 

P.S.  The lights and numbers were both from Home Depot!  Three light fixtures and house numbers were all under 50 bucks! I ran out of Home Depot so fast before they could tell me I was stealin!

Be Well,


  1. What an incredible deal! Wait, is this your house?

    I love what you are saying about mixing modern elements with classic architecture. It looks awesome. And vice versa, actually -- classic elements in modern architecture...I'd love to see a post on that. You'd rock that topic.

  2. Yes, I love the little update! those numbers are fabulous

  3. I'm going to echo Camille's suggestion--I'd love to hear your tips and tricks for combining classic and modern elements. The house numbers look fantastic, as does the new lighting!

  4. Hi Heather! I'm visiting from Mandi's blog. I've always loved those house numbers and I think your updates are great.

  5. I love this. Wish I could do something similar but our siding is yellow, and not a pretty yellow. Since there is a chance we might move in a few years painting it is out of the question.

    I've seen those numbers and love them!
