Siding is going up today! While I try to stay out of the way (all I want to do is sit in the yard and watch the transformation, but I’m sure I’m driving the crew nuts) I’m toiling over a pile of paint swatches. At the last minute we went with a siding color that has a bit more gold in it (it’s just a little warmer). I love it, especially with the heavy white trim.
Yesterday I took some of the top choices out to see how they looked in the sun. I’m totally stuck. I always wanted a yellow door. But about a year ago, the idea of orange started to stick. And then when I was working on our mock-ups the thought of a minty blue door with christmas greens in winter made my heart flutter.
But I can’t seem to translate the color of blue I have in my head to a swatch. Everything is either too light, too dark, too green, too pastel, too something… I can’t pin-point it.
I think Sea Glass is the closest, but still too green perhaps. The other two blues are just bleh.
I do love the yellow and orange in the photo above. But I’m still not sure. I just can’t seem to settle on a color. I think once I get siding up on the proper side of the house I’ll try again. I can’t decide if I should scrap the idea of blue or keep trying to find that hue in my head.
What color is your front door? How did you commit to a color?
