Pink Doors

You may have already noticed up on my springtime banner up there, but I finally found a pink for the doors! It's actually quite a bright pink, but with a little coral-y orange-y undertone that keeps it from looking too bubble-gum.

The color is Cherry Hill by Ace. I think it significantly perks the house up. Here's what it looked like before:
Dark front door, white side door. You can see them a little more clearly in this Christmas shot:

I would have shown that first, but it doesn't seem quite a fair comparison to then say...
And now:
Cheerier, no? Of course the new walkway and amendments to the garden help, too...
But I'll talk more about the garden later!
Here's what the color on the front door used to be:

Which looked nice from the inside, but from the outside just looked DARK.

No danger of that now! And the new color looks good with the grey and pink living room, too. (Even though there still are three different colors of grey on that wall!) Yay!

Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment. That is how I always find the new ones I like -- when I track back to you!

I enjoyed looking through your blog. You are doing such cute things with your house, and I love your pink doors. My own front door is turquoise, and I think the neighbors probably haven't recovered yet...

Anyway, I enjoyed your blog -- come back to see me when you can.

I love the pink doors!!! Now they really pop from the outside.
