Opening A New Door

We just had the exterior of our home repainted and we decided to go with a bright chartreuse color (Benjamin Moore's Chamomile) for the front door.

I like to make a splash – but a small one – so this fits the bill. I can change this out with another color in a few years and it won't be a huge ordeal.

I'm drawn to the contrast of sharp citrus tones against drab neutrals – it is my favorite combination. We're really happy with this new look.

Looking for a painting service? If you live in the Chicago Metro area – you may be interested in knowing that we used Star’s Painting Service for our exterior painting – 312-415-8067 mobile or 847-677-4884 office. They also handle electric, plumbing, flooring, paper hanging and plaster repair. We are really happy with Star’s and felt that their pricing was reasonable. Ask for John.
