new home - exterior mood board & ideas.

I've shared a few mood boards of what I've been thinking for certain rooms in our new home (here & here) so today I thought I'd show you my inspiration for the exterior of the house. It is an old, one storey cottage and it's tiny so we're in the middle of building an extension onto it. 
I'm a big fan of having old and new side by side so a contemporary extension was always the plan from the beginning. There will be a lot of glass, clean lines and a touch of mid century style too. I think we'll keep with neutral colours and maybe give the front door and bold pop of colour.
 The past week or so, things have really sped up so I'll share some photos of the progress very soon.
