I think I found the perfect turquoise

I popped into Lowes this morning to check out Sarah Richardson’s colour collection for PARA. Seeing as I was in the paint section anyway, I picked up some turquoise & green chips… and I think I found the perfect turquoise for the front door :-) I was actually planning to paint the door next summer, but I might have to just go ahead and do it now, because I LOVE this colour!!

It’s Sea Breeze EB8-2 from the Eddie Bauer Lakeside Cottage collection:

Here’s how it looks against the grey & white bricks:

Is it a YES?

Love it, it looks fabulous against the brick. DO IT! Can't wait to see the end result. Kat (ps - how many layers of paint does your door have? Just asking for future reference. I want to be able to tell DH that you can safely have up to ____ layers of paint on the door :)

How could a colour that luscious be a bad thing - I say go for it! What a statement you'll make - you'll have the most beautiful, not to mention on-trend, house in the street! Right, off with you, your door awaits, and so do we - we need to see those after pics, pronto! K xx
