House paint...

Something that C and I have been meaning to get round to since we bought our house four years ago is painting the outside, and on Saturday whilst I sat at our market stall staring out at the lovely Pieminister shop opposite, I was admiring their all black shop front and thinking maybe we should go black on our house. C soon vetoed that plan! But we've since been inspired by other lovely one colour shop fronts. I love the idea of the wall, windows and door being the same shade.

Here are a few of our favourites from some old haunts, Cheshire Street and Columbia Road, in lovely London town - although I'm not sure we'd pull off Shelf's bright orange on a wonky old country cottage!!...

And I love these houses in a nearby street - exactly the look I'm hoping to go for. We'll post some photos once we've chosen the exact shade of blue/green/grey we're using!
