Benjamin Moore’s Aura® Grand Entrance®

April 28, 2018

Are you searching for the perfect front door color? This is the busiest time of year for me helping clients choose exterior colors and especially a fabulous front door color:


                                                                                           DOOR  Red Tulip 2000-30 Aura Grand Entrance                  TRIM  Simply White OC-117

When deciding exterior color combinations, I like to think  to think of your exterior as a business suit; the walls are a neutral color which makes up 60% of the combination, (the pants and jacket), the trim and windows make up 30% of the color palette, (the shirt) and the door is  10% of the color palette combination , ( tie/door is the 10% pop of color) which I wrote about here:


    DOOR Green Meadows 2040-20 Aura Grand Entrance Satin

      TRIM Snowfall White OC-118 Aura Grand Entrance Satin

          SIDING Maritime White OC-5 Aura Grand Entrance Satin

Did you know Ben Moore introduced the Benjamin Moore’s Aura® Grand Entrance® line, specially formulated for front doors in 2015? I did not. I just came across on Pinterest recently:Read More

Do you remember a couple weeks ago when I shared a project where I was helping a client find a front door color here?:


I had given her two beautiful color choices to look at. Although she sampled and loved the turquoise color:


She was even more excited about a shade of red-orange I had suggested:

My color suggestions were based her existing brick color and newly painted garage. And did you notice the new lighting we choose?:

So pretty! I also suggested that she paint her shutters in a lighter color to work with her side-door panel and garage. Now it looks like the house is unified and well balanced.

She sent me this message soon after it was completed:

“The contractor finished today and the house looks wonderful!! Atrue transformation! Thank you so much for your assistance with this project. I truly couldn’t have done it without you. The contractor commented that the house now looked more inviting and I certainly agree. I think the paint colors came together very nicely!”
