Make a state­ment with a col­or­ful door

Dear Sandy,

I’ve read your ar­ti­cles and re­ally like the way you give ad­vice and most im­por­tantly an­swers to our ques­tions. I’m like many when it comes to de­sign be­cause I have such a dif­fi­cult time try­ing to visu­al­ize what it will look like. I pretty much stay safe, but I’m ready to make my mark in the neigh­bor­hood.

I’m send­ing you a pic­ture of my en­try door and am ask­ing for you to show me one or maybe two paint op­tions to dress my door. My neigh­bors are watch­ing.

Karen Dear Karen,

It is good to hear that you read my ar­ti­cles and take away ideas and in­for­ma­tion that is use­ful. I re­ceive a lot of feed­back from the read­ers of GO! and ap­pre­ci­ate their com­ments.

Well, look­ing at the pic­ture of your front door, I would say that you have been play­ing it safe so maybe it is time to take the plunge and make some noise.

I have the tech­nol­ogy that makes it pos­si­ble to show your door in a vast se­lec­tion of paint col­ors. We can start with your ex­ist­ing color and then explore some un­ex­pected shades you may not have con­sid­ered. This tech­nol­ogy can also be ap­plied to your in­te­rior so if you like I can show you what paint se­lec­tions would be best for your rooms, too.

I played with quite a few col­ors but nar­rowed it down to two that will stand the test of time and make your first im­pres­sions last­ing and fa­vor­able ones.

I wanted the door to re­ally POP so on both of these op­tions I trimmed out the door jamb in Sher­win Wil­liams Black Bean #6006. Some­times break­ing the rules is a good thing!

Op­tion #1. This is Sher­win Wil­liams Poin­set­tia and I think it is per­fect year round. This color is known for its invit­ing per­son­al­ity and will be a show stop­per.

Op­tion #2. I re­ally like this fresh and vi­brant Sher­win Wil­liams color Io­nian #6754. It is peace­ful and re­lax­ing but cer­tainly not shy. This door color would be a stand­out in any neigh­bor­hood.

Now that you have seen ex­actly what your en­try can look like it is time to make the big de­ci­sion and move for­ward. Will it be op­tion #1 or op­tion #2? I can’t wait to hear back from you. I think this calls for a cel­e­bra­tion so I want to share one of my fa­vorite sum­mer­time drinks. This can be fam­ily friendly or a re­ally de­light­ful adult drink. Serve it to your neigh­bors and lis­ten to the com­pli­ments on your door and your drink.

Op­tion 1

Op­tion 2
