Welcome home


I just finished selecting exterior paint colors for a house on the water in Naples. It is a lovely house but it lacks great architectural details. So I wanted to give it a little drama with the paint. We are painting the house in neutrals but I thought it would be fun to paint the front door bright yellow.



I am really enjoying bright yellow right now. Not a lot of it ... just a pop. In fact, I have a piece of furniture in my house I am pondering painting yellow this week. I would go up against a gray wall - one of my favorite color combinations - gray and yellow.  I just had some gray and yellow address labels printed up by Sara at Less Ordinary Designs. I love the way they came out (I removed my address for this post):


What about you? Do you like a little yellow or do you shy away from it?


Either way, I hope this brightens up your morning ... Happy Monday everyone!

We painted our front door yellow last year, and I LOVE it. We are the brightest/happiest door on the block. And thanks for the recommendation on the labels too - those are so cute. I added her shop to my favorites.

I found your blog from your feature on 6th St. Design. I absolutely adore your eye for design. Then as I was reading some of your back posts, I saw you were a local LB girl like myself. It made the world feel just a little bit smaller and a little more cozy! :) Happy day to you!
