Exterior Paint, Trim and Rail? Advice Needed

5 years ago

We are moving into this 1950's California ranch/tract home, and will be getting a new roof and all new paint (exterior and interior). Also needs landscaping, a new fence, and a whole list of things, but we have to start somewhere.

I need help turning this cutesy 50's house into the retro/mid century style of our dreams. With a long to-do list, I'm trying to stay on a budget (but I also don't want to sacrifice style!).

I also need thoughts/suggestions for adding a rail or something so we don't all fall out the front door. I'd love to get some mid-century breeze blocks but I'm not sure I'll be able to find an entire lot of vintage ones.

So please, share thoughts on paint, trim, rail, landscaping, fence and anything else. Thanks in advance!
