The front door was white (like the interior and exterior of the house!). We wanted to break things up so went with a bold black. This has really brought out the leadlights. Next project is to remove all of the door hardware and polish it up (or replace where necessary) with shiny brass fixtures so it really pops against the black.
The porch and garage door were painted a depressing, dated blue-grey (like a shark). I wanted a warmer grey. After many test pots (see below!) we settled on a Karen Walker for Resene grey which we think brings back some elegance to the space and looks more modern. Very pleased, and we can't wait to get stuck into the front gardens and gates to tidy them up so our whole frontage looks amazing!
Here is what the porch and front door looked like before:
And here is what a lick of paint can do!
