I adore everything about this - the timber shingles, the red door, the white columns and mouldings, the red brick steps.
I really like this front scenery. The front door sticks out, especially against the white frame and the blue shutters really make the white windows pop out. The exterior is really rustic as well as the steps, but looking at this, it's probably in the middle of a city and you probably share a wall with neighbors. Gotta weigh the benefits. Gorgeous, but probably not for me.
Red Front Door + Gray Siding + Cream and Black Trim = To capture the been-there-forever look, Ramey painted the house charcoal gray and the window frames high-gloss black. "The trim is not white and it's not ivory; it's a color that looks like whipped cream," says Ramey. The red door adds major zing. "It's how I direct people here: 'I'm halfway up the street, the house with the red door.'"
