For those of you looking to create an all-white exterior, take a look at what one of my readers was able to create with the help of my Exterior Colour Selection Masterclass and my favorite landscape designer.
I received this wonderful before and after from a reader and and she copied both MaryAnne White (she is the Landscape Designer I ALWAYS refer in my eDesign consultations AND on this blog) this is what my reader had to say:
Thought you might enjoy a few before and after pictures of our exterior transformation (so far), since you both played such a great role in it!Maryanne,Here is phase 1 of our landscaping. We did the purchasing and planting ourselves and made a few substitutions on some of the plants, but we are very pleased with the results! We hope to do the lighting, driveway pavers and bluestone front steps next year, which I’m so excited for, and then additional landscaping to the front per your plan eventually as finances allow. p.s. I’ve had a little bit of an issue with the cute but annoying deer family eating my rozanne geraniums and hydrangeas in the front of the house otherwise, they would be much fuller!Maria,I took the original exterior webinar, some of the other ebooks and of course am a loyal blog and IG follower! I also did a bathroom edesign consult (which we are still in love with).Anyway, the masterclass was so helpful in planning our exterior changes – which included dormer, windows, roof, gutters, front door, garage doors and obviously paint! Your guidance helped immensely with what is generally overwhelming and scary! We are so happy with the result!Thanks to both of you. And our neighbors thank you too!
Landscaping is too important not to mention
Someone recently commented on my Instagram that I was plugging MaryAnne (yet AGAIN).
And do you know why?
And looking at their house, I know (just like mine desperately did when we moved in) that landscaping (in addition to new paint) is what they need to bring the magical curb appeal they are looking for to their home.
It would be very sad if my advice basically stated “You need landscaping” and then after that, all I could say to help was “Good luck with that”.
It fills me with joy that I can recommend MaryAnne White who not only resonates with my aesthetic but who comes with 35 years of experience. And she can bring beauty to your home anywhere you are in North America.

Notice how MaryAnne added curves and generous garden beds just like in my garden. Straight lines mostly belong on a modern landscape design, she does those too.
MaryAnne’s rates start at $850 for a small front yard to $2500 for a much larger property. Here’s her blog where you can find her contact info.
Here’s a close up of the front door transformation:
It’s truly amazing how many columns by the front door often have a downspout attached to it (just like mine was). So much better when it’s just painted out against the wall.
The scale and shape of her outdoor pendant lantern under the porch is also just perfect!

Let’s see the before and after again shall we:
This transformation from one of my Exterior Colour Selection Masterclass students is just stunning! The garage door is especially pretty here too!
