Mount Vernon Part One (of Many)

This home in Washington County is so special.  The homeowners and I (and their architect and builder and many wonderful craftsmen) have been working for some time to see this beauty finally emerge and boy is it emerging to be everything we hoped!

Every site visit I am so excited to see it come to life and near completion!

 

Is there anything better than the smell of sawdust and fresh paint and the sound of saws and hammers!  Not to me!  

These colors are soft but fresh and feel so organic and fitting to their landscape, especially with the wildflowers still blooming just outside!

Most of the house is painted BM Pale Oak, SW Eider White with dark accents of SW Dorian Gray and SW Classic French Gray.  And SW Peppercorn in one very special room!  We may be discussing a drinking game with the aim of naming these colors!  The top color is custom just for the lady of the house!

I like to think Mr A. Hayes Town himself would approve of this color palette, I am so pleased with how they play of one another and the natural light. Not all my doing, the homeowners did a lot of samples and comparing colors, total team effort to get to this point.  Houses like this don’t just happen! I couldn’t help but think of this famous image of him today when I saw this Duxbury and Classic French Gray paint on the walls!

More to come including some wonderful exterior photos and brick flooring and grasscloth.  Also I am hoping the homeowners will let me share some of the tips and tricks they learned in researching some historic Natchez, Mississippi, paint colors!  They did their homework. It’s been such a joy to be a part..amazing team of architectural design, builder, craftsmen and more.  Including Fischer Tile of Brenham Texas and JM Floors. I can’t wait to see the lighting via True Blue Home installed and marble via BRENHAM AREA MARBLE in place.
