I have been doing a lot of posts about my front door candy lately. When I look back at the pictures I can see that my door is crying out for a fresh coat of paint. When we bought our home twelve years ago it had a pale gray door. It was nice but a bit of a yawn so I painted it red thinking my door should be a taste of what was to come as soon as you crossed the threshold. The interior of my house has a lot of red so I chose a dark red and for the last eight years or so I've been good with it. Now I still think the entrance should set the tone but I realize a lot of colors coordinate well with red and yellow is one of them.
This week I am inspired by yellow doors.
I try and imagine what my door candy would look like on a yellow door throughout the seasons. I think most of it would be doable but I would probably have to tweak my Valentine flair to make that work. Holiday greens would be elegant, fall would be a perfect fit and summer colors would be a breeze.
Ours is an older two story white home with gray shutters and a dark gray roof so I think yellow could be a unique take on a classic look.
Then again, this is a really pretty red. Maybe I just need to do something brighter. After all, someone with the blog named Becolorful shouldn't have a drab front entrance.
It will be a while before it is warm enough to paint in this part of the world. So I guess I have a little time to think about it.
I am linking up today to The Inspired Room. Please take the time to visit there and check out the party. Melissa is a great resource for fresh and obviously inspiring ideas.
