We recently moved into a house, and are making it our own. . Our house is an old 1926 bungalow, with cream(ish) stucco and dusty blue trim. The outside is in dire need of some curb appeal. It’s not bad, but it’s just not us yet, as we are not country.
In an effort to make this a little more like us, a little more modern while still keeping to the age of the house, the concept of painting the front door came up. A red front door is the first step, but I refuse to do that, as I think red with the dirty white/cream and country blue would just take us further down the path of country. Jeff agrees, but doesn’t agree on painting it a different color, and thinks it should stay either the same or stain the wood. Which made me wonder why red doors were the norm.
It has been answered. And it is a good answer. But I still refuse to paint it red. So the question now is: green, marigold, or stained wood? (none of these places match our colors – it’s cream stucco with blue, not gray, trim. But they give you an idea.)
