this house has off white brick with grey mortar, also country blue trim, and white windows. I want to refurbish the out side of the house and warm it up with color. What colors should I chooses?
I like either a french country look or a cottage look, or just some thing more homey this house always looks cold.

I think the main reason your house is giving you the "cold shoulder" is the iron on the
porch. I think any color choice for the house would be fine if change out the iron for wood. Even a dark color with light trim and fence. Definitely keep the trim light even if the house stays the same color. (Tan house, white trim) I think also adding an overhang to the porch or something that draws the eye up would be good. Kind of a trellis look, and you could foe paint the garage to look like carriage doors. Add some wild roses that you can train to climb the front of the house and I think you would have a great start to your own French country retreat! The AC unit? Get creative!
My stove burners get absolutely disgusting. Sealing them up with a tiny bit of pure ammonia makes it possible to just wipe clean with a sponge. #SpringCleaning http://www.thevspotblog.com/2011/07/cleaning...
