Yearning for Yellow

Jen was yearning for some color on her front door, but her front door wasn’t up for it.  For starters, her front door is set way back in a dark tunnel-esque entryway.  Secondly, the exterior of her house is a peachy-colored stucco. Unless she was planning on painting her door a pastel teal and sticking a coyote in a bolo-tie out there, very few colors would work with that vibe.  But, not to be deterred, she painted the inside of her door instead. Fun! I love the quote too, that’s pretty much all we really need to remember, right?  Check it out on her blog Twiddler House.

  6. Just beautiful!!!
    I would never think of painting a door yellow – so glad to see this!

  7. Love it. And love the bird above the door. where did you get it, may I ask?

  8. I hope I’m getting this right, because I love a quote very similar. I think it was from John Adams. Is that right, Jen? I think it all the time…”Be good, do good.” According to HBO’s version, he says it to his kids as he tucks them into bed.

    Lindsey, just so you know, I love your quirky humor. I just GET it!

  9. Lovely door. Its eye catching and very pleasing to look at. I never thought yellow would be a nice color for a door.

  10. Now that’s what I call a lovely soft shade of yellow. I’ve always been partial to yellow and it’s been such a long time since it’s been in the design scheme of things. Welcome back beautiful color.

  11. “a coyote in a bolo-tie”…exactly! Dang Southwest peach stucco! 😉

    Thanks so much for the feature!!
