I’m kind of a know-it-all when it comes to remodeling. While in my heart I know that other people really are entitled to their opinion as to what looks good and doesn’t, I just can’t seem to get that to work for me in reality.
In my humble opinion, if I say it looks good, it does. And if I say it ugly, it is.
Usually I say French Doors painted one color on the outside and another color on the inside are ugly.
It’s the contrast that happens when the doors are open that generally gets me all worked-up and thrown out of people’s homes. If the exterior color scheme blends not with the room, then God help us all.
But what if they do go together? What if the exterior door color works great with the interior. Now that’s a different story.
This picture, as tiny as it may be, shows a really great looking use of color that works when the doors are open, and when they are closed.
Can I point out a few other noteworthy details from this little picture:
- the custom china hutch with a beadboard back is way too cool.
- the light pattern on these doors is unique (light pattern = how many glass panes there are)
- love the marble table – check out the thickness and edge detail. Hire a mover.
- What do you think about that small chandalier hanging near the fireplace? I think that works kind of a cool magic with the big mirror on the nice little mantle.
Another day, another opinion. Take it for what it’s worth.
