In keeping with the look of the historic neighborhood, where houses feature shutters and decorative elements in shades such as turquoise and coral, Blair used a conch shell pink for exterior. He modernized the look by reversing the scheme, tempering the pink with with a dark wood stain on the shutters and gray paint on the porch floors. "The bright color makes the house stand out," he says.
