Annie Selke's modern ranch reno featured on House Beautiful's website
Dreadful and depressing with a "fake front porch."
(Annie's words, not mine)
A fuschia door? Never would have thought to do it or convinced someone to try it. It is Drop Dead Gorgeous. Literally, that is the name of the Benjamin Moore color.
Annie's words of wisdom:
HB: "What's the easiest change you can make?"
ANNIE: "I painted the front door. It just needed something — I said, 'What the heck. Let's paint it pink'."
SO...the moral of the story is try it. You may like it.
