Welcome back to the blog. In case you hadn't noticed, I took a long break from the blog over the summer.  I'm back in full swing now and am committed to sharing more of the projects we've been busy working on over the summer.  So, welcome.  And Thank YOU for your support and for visiting!

The front of the house was painted this week!  What do you think?  It's a Benjamin Moore paint called Dragon Breath.  {Funny name, I know...hehe} I've used this color before and love it.  It looks sort of black here in the photo, but it's definitely more of a brown.   Will did such a nice job cutting in on the molding, don't you think?

Okay, here's my question for you.  What color do we paint the front door?  We initially were thinking red, but now I'm not so sure.  The tile color might conflict.  Thoughts/suggestions welcome.

I love the Dragon Breath color-- it's so rich.
What about painting the door a Kelly Green? That could be fun :)

WOW! It looks amazing. Love seeing all your before and afters. Keep em comin!

Oh, it's gorgeous! What a warm welcome to your new home.

I adore red doors. Maybe a deep red that complements the tile. I know it will look amazing no matter the color you choose!

Oh, I stumbled upon your house while driving around during some downtime between my classes at MSU and I thought you had painted the door gold. I can see here that I was wrong. But, I don't think gold is a bad idea. A metallic gold for a front door is unexpected and I think meshed well with the Dragon's Breath PLUS, wouldn't clash with red... in my opinion, itd be really cool. :)

I love that color! A mint green door would look really good I think.
