You may recall this post back in February where I mentioned the idea of painting the front door. Well now that the weather is warmer, it is time to take some action. Above is a shot of our current color scheme. I reviewed my pinterest exterior board and found that I gravitated towards simple tonal color schemes…pretty much the same as my interior. (Sorry for the grainy photo quality.)
After some research, I narrowed my choice down to the following:
I stopped in to SW to grab samples since all I had seen to this point was online & this gorgeous color jumped out at me.
It has just a hint of mint and I am obsessed. Can not get it out of my head. And the three of these together is pure heaven. I might even be in love enough to sandblast the brick shoji white in the relatively near future.
My current dilemma is what color combo to choose. Here is a close up of the current door:
Do I go dark with urban bronze trim & the comfort gray door? My concern there is that the brass of the door and mint tones in the grey might look even more 80's than the orange oak.
Or do I stick with my original plan and paint the trim shoji white, door urban bronze & then incorporate comfort gray via pots/planters?
