The painters started painting our shutters today. I went home for lunch and they were just starting. It seemed really bright but I didn't want to panic. I leashed up the dog and, by the time I got around the block once, the first set of shutters was done. It looked like this:
Note the contrast from the shutters to the frame of the screen door (do not note the dead hanging plant in the bottom right hand corner). It's bad, right? From a distance it looks even worse! I asked them to stop in what I hoped was a calm voice and proceeded to inundate my husband's voice mail with messages. Then I plucked some leaves off the bushes and sped off to Sherwin Williams. My gut tells me the shutters should be less orange-y red and more purple-y red to go with the door and the foliage. I also want it to go well with the rocks to the right of the front door. I have no confidence, though. Anyone with an opinion, please help. My husband is not answering his phone and I need to decide soon!
This is what I think will work:
The old color is on the right and the new color is on the left. Here's how it looks by the front door:
Thank goodness I never studied to be an interior designer! It'd be the worst!!! Am I on the right track? Am I panicking over nothing? Advice, please........
