What is the color of the trim? It looks like Chrysler Aviator Blue, which happens to be what I am looking for

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Lily Gahagan added this to Houzz Tour: Historic Home in Austin, Texas
The back entry is painted in Statton Blue from Benjamin Moore.
Becky Harris added this to Unexpected Combination: Rustic Rooms and Blue
This historic home in Austin, Texas welcomes guests with a pleasing light blue entryway. Notice how they same color is used on the walls, trim, door and even on the bench.
Shawn Gauthier added this to Corral Your Gear with a Makeshift Mudroom
Create a space for your shoes by adding a small shelf beneath your hooks. Your makeshift mudroom storage need not be fancy, it just needs to do the job.
Jen L'Italien added this to Organizing Trick: Hooks for Hanging Clothes
Every home does not come complete with a full-on Martha-style mudroom. But you still need a place to hang your coat and hat at the end of a day. Hooks up high and a little bench below create a functional mudroom space in the corner of an entryway.
Vanessa Brunner added this to 5 Ways to Make a Better Entrance
Another option is installing basic coat hooks, and labeling each one with a different name. If you're living in a multi-person household, having a zone for each person can be incredibly helpful. It's also important to organize things in a way that makes it comfortable and easy to store them. Shoes should go on the floor so they can be kicked off quickly, while jackets and hats should hang at eye level.
Laura Gaskill added this to Refresh Your Mudroom
4. Take advantage of a small space. Just because you don't have a mudroom doesn't mean you can't have an attractive and orderly area to corral your belongings when you come in the door. A simple built-in or floating shelf and a few hooks are all you really need.If you want to make this zone feel like its own miniroom, try painting or wallpapering an accent wall to frame the area. Want it to blend in instead? Paint the wall and shelving to match the color of the surrounding room for a seamless transition.
Laura Gaskill added this to How to Research Your Home's History
Choose paint colors from a historic color collection. Whether you are using paint chips discovered beneath layers of interior or exterior paint, or are starting fresh but want to use historically accurate colors, there are now many paint companies ready to make things easier. A few you might find helpful:Benjamin Moore, which has a comprehensive historic color collection covering a range of architectural stylesSherwin-Williams, which has both interior and exterior paint colors for a wide range of American architectural stylesFine Paints of Europe, which carries high-pigment-content paints in historic huesFarrow & Ball, which has historic paints and papers
Alison Hodgson added this to Your Back-to-School Game Plan
A place right by the back door is ideal, but that may not work in your house. Look around and be creative.
