    Your new front door color is welcoming and gorgeous and your fall display is charming and cozy. Oh how you inspire me to get busy and have fun The first door color….mmmmm, not so much 🙂 However, I can see where you were going with your thought process. It will be easy to change once you do your lime wash! I understand. I chose (what I thought was) a beautiful deep rasberryish color for our front door of a home we were moving into in another state. My husband moved to the new city to begin work while the kids and I wrapped up school, etc. He oversaw some changes being made to the house and that was convenient. When the kids, the dog and I pulled up to our new home we were happy to see our movers had safely arrived, they were unloading furniture and the cul de sac was busy and crowded. There was plenty to do and see, but my eyes went directly to one spot and I couldn’t look away! That front door. All I could do was crack up laughing. I was certain that my colorblind husband had NO idea just how atrocious or what color that door was, but I was pretty sure our new neighbors were very aware 🙂 I ended up choosing, with help, a deep sage green for the door. It worked much better with the lighter brick. I haven’t chosen paint colors long distance or without guidance again. That cul de sac provided some of the best friends ever and many happy memories. Our front door color was an ice breaker. We have moved somewhat often with my husband’s job. Always a dog in tow. Many times with kids. Never exactly quietly. Now retired and downsized. We have a cheery cherry door. dark gray shutters. Window boxes filled with pinks, whites, blues and greens. I love it. Happy fall!

    What is the name of the paint color/make on the fall front door? I could not find it in the article. Thank you in advance. Barbara

    Hi, I’d also really like to know which paint colour you used for the door. It’s exactly the look that I’m going for 🙂 Thanks!
