Hooked on Houses is hosting her "Hooked on Fridays" blog party; I hope y'all will click here and have look. This week I'm hooked on Jeff's Shutters again. Do you remember the original Jeff's Shutters post? A lot of nice folks left great comments.
Jeff needs your comments again because...
Jeff has changed the colors. He's started building the hardware, removed all the old shutters and painted the windows.
In the original post Gordon and Jeff had designed new shutters, and selected colors for the shutters and for the window muntins. It was controversial. Family harmony was at stake. Dogs and cats were sleeping together.
They did a test. I took some pictures and did some PhotoShopping. Here are the original black, non-functional shutters. The test is in the lower right.
The muntins have gone white and the latest shutter color is California Paint "Pettingill Sage" Hist144. Here is the sample.
Let's go though the progression via my amateur Photoshop Elements, skills.

Removing the shutters changed the house big time. I almost snapped my neck as I drove by. I asked Jeff if he'd considered no shutters. He said emphatically, "these shutters are going up."
Photshopped Pettingill Sage (I don't have the correct colors and don't know how to manange the sun and shade.
It's a corner lot, here is the other facade with original black stick-on shutters:
Photoshopped with the bluish shutters:
The no shutter look. Here is Jeff. He's horsing the shutters around so I can get some pictures. Did I mention that he built the shutters himself? Well he did.
The Photoshopped sage shutters.
It's a great corner lot in the Lenox Park area of Atlanta's Morningside / Lenox Park neighborhood.
Thanks so much,
