Pick A Color, Any Color
Posted by youdidthat
I’m deep in the depths of trying to decide what color/colors I want to paint the inside of the house-to-be. I’m deviating from my sunshine yellow “neutral” and branching out. I’m a little overwhelmed. So in an attempt to break things down into smaller pieces I’ve decided to just choose a front door color to start with. This house is just screaming for a fun door, it has been since the second visit when it knew it had Justin and was working on me.
For those of you not from the south or Charleston specifically there is a color around here known as Charleston Green. It is basically black with a green undertone. I had not heard of this color until I moved to South Carolina, nor did I know black could be green, but it is everywhere. I knew it could be purple from a friends hair color mishap in college, but that is a story for another time. Right my dear old roommate? Anyway, the current door and shutters are in this great color and while I love the color in a multitude of places, it is not really what I want on our front door. As I said earlier the house had been making its thoughts known too. Old houses speak and this one has a few things to say already.
So we are starting early and asking for opinions from our friends that are following our musings and progress. Those that live locally feel free to drive by the house, sit outside and generally stalk it. See what it says to you. It hasn’t told me a color yet. Red, Burnt Orange, even a REALLY Glossy Black would liven it up! Here is a close up picture of the brick if you are not able to do a drive-by!
I plan on tackling the door soon after we close so you will get instant gratification. I feel the need to get something accomplished!
