I ask myself – several times a week – What Would Martha Do? Yes, that Martha. The Martha I love, wholly and without judgment. Even when I see her recipes and think are you &#$%% kidding me with this? I banish it immediately from my mind because it is a sin to think badly of Martha. Martha does not make mistakes. Except for the one little insider trading situation which was SO not her fault. I remember people saying Martha was forever finished and I thought these are the same poor, pathetic souls who don’t understand the purpose of coriander seeds. Shameful.
As you know, my friend and client Sara is gutting and renovating a house in Colorado and she is doing a stellar job. I am amazed by her sheer determination, her formidable energy and her exquisite taste. Martha would be equally impressed; and Martha isn’t easily impressed.
In the midst of a major renovation, Sara is also contemplating a color for the exterior of her house because, you know, why not? So you know who I asked. And by asked, I mean googled. That’s right, folks. Martha. Martha’s gorgeous home, named Cantitoe Corners after an Indian princess (of course), is painted Bedford Gray. In my extensive research on Martha’s favorite everythings I found this older video showcasing Martha’s Maine home. Because why just have one ginormous compound when you can have several? That’s what I say. Who doesn’t want to pay more property taxes? Am I right?
Take a peek at how the other 1% lives and then consider some of the following combos for your exterior ( love the coral door idea!). Because it’s what’s on the outside that counts.
See you next time at The Neighbor’s House!
