My front door faces West and catches the afternoon sun.
The paint had become dull and faded.
I perused the colors in the paint departments at hardware stores.
I brought home color cards.
I asked friends and family for their opinions.
After two years of contemplation I finally made a decision.
The new color is Tyler Taupe by Benjamin Moore.
Here is my freshly painted door in Tyler Taupe.
The color is very similar, however, it is a much darker color and the shine makes the door appear much cleaner.
I think it works with the traditional style of the house, the red brick and the white surround.
My mother suggested a dark green.
She has visited a couple of times since I painted the door and hasn't even noticed. My husband didn't notice either.
This is a photo I took last year after I made and hung the wreath.
I guess I'll leave the reds, greens, browns and oranges to the other homeowners in the neighborhood.
I planted the annual begonias yesterday.
I also moved the second planter to the landing.
Previously it had been at the bottom of the steps.
I welcome color suggestions. Let me know what you think.
