It’s easy to design your own custom color shutters with Timberlane – but choosing the exact color you want isn’t always so simple.
“It looked like a prison,” said Deborah S. about the ranch-style home she had just bought. From the curb, the exterior is somewhat industrial-looking, a little bit plain and cold. Just not quite “homey.” A squat, grey building that stretches wide and flat through the lawn. Up close, the house is beautiful—awash with shimmery gray stone flecked with silver mica. For whatever reason, the rancher just didn’t have that warm, familiar feeling of “home.”
Sometimes, transforming a new house to reflect your own style isn’t easy. Though, it’s probably more difficult for some than for others—such as, perhaps, a colorblind art collector whose sense of aesthetic is as particular as her sense of color is murky. However, with an initial spark to get the wheels turning and a bit of advice from our shutter experts—as well as renowned painter Ford Smith—Deborah managed to design just the right finishing touch she needed to fall in love with her home.
Deborah is a scientist living in Bucks County, PA. And although she works a very left—brain job, her interest in art and eye for design are both patently clear. Original paintings cover her walls, impeccably arranged and carefully curated. Inside, the home is reminiscent of the old Barnes Museum, if Barnes had a more contemporary taste in art. Truly, each room is flawlessly planned and filled to the brim with visual interest. But the gray stone exterior and wide, short structure of her home really needed something.
