Yellow, not so Mellow



Do you all remember this picture from Blueprint Magazine? I just never got over this yellow door. I'm thinking about painting our new front door on our very old house a great yellow. I'm sure my Scranton neighbors are getting very nervous if they are reading this. But I think if you paired it pitch perfect, it would be sublime. Not easy right? So what shade?
Maybe Cane by Farrow & Ball
Or Sunny at Heart by Mythic Paint (gotta love the name)
What about Ralph Lauren Bicycle Yellow
By the way, Blueprint's door color is the following:

Oooh, I love this look! What color is the rest of your house? That could make a big difference in the hue you go with. Let us know what you decide!

I'm glad you all think so! How about with my planned grey body on the house? I know red is the standby, but I'm thinking a bit more daring. Any good pictures from my readers?

I too love the yellow door! I painted my front door green after getting the first issue of Blueprint and it is so nice to come home to! I really like the Bicycle Yellow.

I'm wondering if you are THAT Tori of Tori Burch fame, because she certainly likes yellow!

I love the exterior painting on that yellow door! I bet you have the best curb appeal on the block!
