I recently consulted with a client who is limewashing her house. They are doing an extensive redesign to their exterior and she was excited about taking her home from orange brick to white-washed loveliness.
She said they will test a large area on the side of her house to make sure she's happy with the effect before they do this to the entire house.
Her house is currently orange brick which this house clearly was prior to being limewashed so it's a good example of what the end result will be.

We don't have brick homes in the Westcoast so this is not something we do here, so I thought I'd ask you, my lovelies:
Do have have a limewashed house? Do you love it?
How did you achieve the look?
What product did you use?
How did you choose the white/cream?
Please post a comment below. I would really appreciate it!
I'm flying to Toronto tomorrow to lead my Specify Colour with Confidence Training this week, I'm excited!
