    Pick a color you like? Then get some samples at the home store and paint 1/2 a shutter and go from there. Also u can go online and check out some other homes you find to your like and also use that as inspiration. Your home is so cute. The new paint shutters w/pop and add some color to your pretty home.

    Thank you...since it's at the beach I wanted some beachy color, not sure what...but thanks

    Since you say beach, I would use that sea foam green/blue on the door and perhaps a companion color a little darker on the shutters!

    Thank you. That's what I was thinking but wasent sure how it would look. Always scared to try different things Thanks

    Oh my gosh thank you so much for the mock ups. Helps me a lot to visualize how it would look. Love the different colors. Thank you

      @Andrea Reed I like # 3 and then # 1 as a second choice, both are beachy. You might want to check what your neighbors have so you can be different. Just a thought.
  • Andrea Reed Andrea Reed on Jul 25, 2014
    I think I really like the first color, thanks so much.....

    Bumping up any more ideas.....

    check out Pinterest for ideas. i have a sm trailer too and im actually putting shutters on mine. Im making them myself from old pallets to give it an old rustic beach look :) i think doing the bottom skirt around trailer will help too :) i just love your questions & mr vans idea was great too, that was cool
  • Andrea Reed Andrea Reed on Sep 09, 2014
    Thanks Chris, I've been checking and looking on your idea of using the pallets....sounds neat

    Knowing you like teal, there are some great choices that Van did for you on the mock ups. One of our trailer houses was white with black shutters too! Brings back some good memories. Personally I like the black shutters because it relates to the shingles of the home and garden shed. I'd be more inclined to rethink the color of the deck railing. And then add in deck accessories/wall accessories and flowers that carry out whatever color your heart desires :-)

    Love the teal but I wouldnt paint the whole door. Maybe the molding around it or something. The whole painted door looks tacky to me. Maybe just a few shades lighter too. Do you plan on painting the brown railing the same color also? Thats why I said a lighter shade.
  • Andrea Reed Andrea Reed on Jan 18, 2015
    Thanks. Nelda, Iam really confused about this now....I really want to do something this summer to make it look more appealing, the shutters or the deck, ideas please.....thanks. Oh by the way I have two decks a smaller one towards the front and the bigger deck as seen...
  • Donay Donay on Apr 14, 2015

    we painted both the decks and the shutters same color...doors too and the bottom too. we did a lighter color on main part of the home. We're gonna get the three tiered roof to pull in both colors...

  • Beth Gold Roccia Beth Gold Roccia on Jun 07, 2017

    still working

    on the garden and needs new

    windows, the roof hasn't been done but we know what we want (three tier shingles in blues)

    hope you have fun designing your home, I find it to be A lot of fun!

  • Beth Gold Roccia Beth Gold Roccia on Jun 07, 2017

    Still a work in progress. Needs windows, plants, and roof. The roof we want is the 3 tier shingle in blue..maybe google has some for ideas! Have fun!

  • Andrea Reed Andrea Reed on Jun 07, 2017

    blues and yellow sound nice. Thank you

    Can you just paint the vinyl siding on the home and skirting or is there anything special you need to do? I'm quite tired of our plain while house and white skirting with faded green shutters....

    Blue has hundreds of shades, and you can do a different shade on the railings & shutters to add interest
