Two color dilemmas: exterior of house and enclosed foyer
February 10, 2013 in Design Dilemma
First, my former white house is of yesterday, almost a sage green, but I am unsure of the trim colors. I had wanted almost to "copy" a house near me and go with sand/green-beige for the trim and then black for doors (the second door is to a mother-in-law suite), lighting and eventually black Bermuda shutters (I am beachside in FL). But then, I thought it may not be too "Floridan" and so I thought maybe just white and change out the storm door for a white one and get white Bermuda shutters. However, when I looked online, I saw that a violet-plum trim may work, too, and that intrigued me, but I may be too conservative if it were just those two colors. Any suggestions would be welcomed with this color dilemma as this is a lot harder than deciding to paint a room and if you don't like it, you go buy another gallon of paint and try again. Also, note that there is no real landscaping yet, so flowers and such would compliment the final product. And my second quandary deals with color as well. I have a covered foyer (photo is attached last), that I painted to match my living room as I often leave the door open, but my friend says it should match the outside of my house. Which is correct?? And then, what color would be the door if I do change the color? Thanks for any help/suggestions that you can send my way.
