"Why make so much of a fragmentary blue..." -Robert Frost
When we bought our home nearly five years ago, the front door wore a coat of white paint. And it's been white ever since - if you don't count a few black streaks left by an over-zealous newspaper boy. But on a trip to Nantucket, this pretty blue entrance got me thinking... a little hit of blue paint in just the right spot might be the perfect update for our own weathered gray shingled home - like how the perfect shade of lipstick can change your whole look.
Since then I've looked at a lot of doors...
And played with a lot of blue paint.
I wanted a shade that would look like the Puget Sound on a day when the clouds and the sun are hanging out together.
We landed on Benjamin Moore Mineral Alloy - A sea-on-a-partly-sunny-day kind of shade, I think.
I'll post a photo of the results soon!
What color is your front door?
