I blame the movie Father of the Bride. I fell in love with a white house many, many years ago and have nearly moved to bad neighbourhoods because they had the perfect white house. Luckily, my better half, Steve, has always kept me on the right side of the tracks by focusing on location. I have loved many things about our current home from day one, but the tri-colour brick and stonework never topped my list. Don't get me wrong: I don't hate all brick, but the red, orange and brown trifecta just didn't feel like me. For the past three years, I've played on apps and in Photoshop to mock-up what our house would look like white — and each time, I grew more confident that it was the right decision. So this past spring, I called Encore Painting to help bring my vision (read: obsession) to life. I was confident in the professionalism and skill from the Encore Painting team as we had worked with them previously when we did a mini refresh last summer, and was super happy with their work and approach.
