Front door, front Dior! Before-After

When I type ‘front door’, the French autocorrect types ‘front Dior’…how very chic!

So here it is, thanks to the ideas, advice, and shared enthusiasm of Houzz users, we finally chose a color, sanded and prepared the door, and painted 3 layers of…. ‘petroleum blue’!
We changed our mind a few times, between teal and dark red, and light grey. In the end, the choice happened in-store, on an instinct… this Teal-meets-NottingHill-blue just felt right.
See before -after pictures, what do you think ?

Now there is another debate on Houzz: painting the living room door… Would you be for or against?
Aaaah the joys of the never-ending to-do list…
Bonne nuit!

Houzz: mes nouveaux consultants!

Je kiffe Houzz: Regardez quelques-uns des montages proposés par les internautes de la communauté Houzz, en plus de plein de conseils techniques pour poncer et repeindre la porte….enfin, je devrais dire les portes parce que je constate une quasi unanimité pour repeindre aussi la porte du salon!! Aaaaaah, un projet en plus?!

Thank you Houzzers! Your ideas and kind advice on our front door are giving me the energy to move forward on this project!

Merci les “houzzers”!

Amazing Houzz!

Vous connaissez l’appli gratuite Houzz? Non? C’est dingue. Vraiment puissante la communauté ! Cliquez sur le lien ci-dessous, vous allez comprendre: http://houzz.com/discussions/1158368

I have recently downloaded the Houzz free app. I found it very nice for browsing but I was not doing anything else with it. Today I asked the Houzz community for my first advice…about our front door color options.
In a few hours, I received several replies, suggestions, pictures for inspiration, and even a few photo-montages with different colored doors!
I’m truly amazed at the power of such a community, the collective creativity bubbling there.

Peachy! Mes premières pêches

Pas encore goûtées, elles sont un peu dures. C’était les achats jardin du printemps: des mini fruitiers chez Botanic…fruitaison garantie la première année. Si c’est pas du bon marketing urbain ça.
Suspense pour les poires, mais j’ai de gros doutes…
Bon week-end et bonne rentrée / happy Labor Day week-end!
