I just painted my front door Parakeet by Sherwin Williams. My boxwood wreath looks fantastic on it. It is such a happy color! The foyer walls are bright white and my area rug is raspberry pink. I'm looking for a crystal ceiling light. It sounds like a juvenile palate but it feels like a happy landing place before seeing the rest of my very neutral home.

It sounds fabulous and I admire the pink rug. Im struggling to get the confidence to try grey plum on staircase 1700s plaster walls, with an antique crystal chandelier, black stair treads and rail, and my chartreuse front door painted on both sides!
