Anyone home? It's been over a year since I was here last. In my opinion Maple Tree Cottage is the prettiest house on the block. Either I'm a trendsetter or just ahead of the new colors but Pantone just announced their color of the year for 2019 as Living Coral "a life-affirming coral hue...that energizes and enlivens..." I think that's what we did to this house, gave it new energy.
My door color was custom by Sherwin Williams 2017. I had a skein of yarn I'd been using and loved the color. Since my color has no name and the brand was called I Love This Cotton, my door color is now called I Love This Door.
All interior and exterior paint is Sherwin Williams. The blue is called Loyal Blue and the trim is Snowbound. I wanted to show the after, first. You'll love the next photo.
The day we bought the house was July 2016, purchased from Gladys' son, Carl. Carl recently came back to Walla Walla and decided to drive by and stop only if he saw someone outside. The mister was out so Carl got the tour. He was so thrilled and speechless. I showed him some of the unique things we left but he really lost it when he saw the kitchen stool in the kitchen, original condition and sitting where it has always belonged.
I don't know how many people have been inside to see the results but I'm proud to show it off. Maple Tree Cottage is warm, cozy, inviting, un-fussy and pretty as can be. Abby loves the house but doesn't like that she slips and slides on the uncarpeted floors. Poor old girl. Doubtful she'd wear grippy dog booties.
Two of the three sons have now seen the house and both agree it's just what Gladys' would have loved.
Stay tuned, Abby and Stephanie
