Over the past few weeks we’ve been having tons of repairs done on the exterior of our house, and now we’re having it painted. The guys asked if I wanted the front door painted, and now I’m stumped. Have I ever told you how much I hate picking colors? I love blacks, beiges, greys, whites, and browns. I would make everything monotone if I could get away with it. I’m tempted to go with my gut and just paint the door dark brown, but maybe it would be fun to have a quirky door, even though I know I’ll get sick of it in 6 months and have to repaint. I did some rough Photoshop work to try out a few different colors.
Emerald green is nice and alpine-y, just like our house!
I like robin’s egg blue next to the brown trim and siding.
A deep, velvety cranberry color might work.
I also have to decide what color to stain the deck, so let me know if you’ve seen any good deck inspiration lately. I have no idea. I suggested staining it the same color as the trim and the guy looked at me like I was crazy, so maybe that’s weird. I’ve never even considered what color decks should be, I just know I don’t like the faded pinkish brown ours is now!
What color is your front door?
