Last week, Lonnie and I went to an open house and we kind of fell in love. It was a gorgeous 100 year old, 2 story craftsman with sooooo much potential. Sadly the house was already off the market, but I can’t get it out of my head. It’s one of those houses that you see and you immediately start packing up your current home and move in all in your head. I have wall colors and ideas picked out for almost every room in the house. It’s definitely my “dream” home. One of the best features of this house was a gorgeous entryway with beautiful wood work and leaded windows. Living in a small house that definitely doesn’t have an entryway, this felt like a very grand and luxurious feature to have in a home. So, while I’m moving into this fantasy home that has a real entryway, indulge me while a dream about being dramatic with paint and consider painting the entryway black.
Black might seem dark and dingy, but I found some really great examples of black paint done well. I love how dark paint colors highlight white trim and moldings.
