My home is a very traditional, colonial style home… designed after the beautiful homes of Charleston South Carolina. Historical Concepts, is my architect and they are nationally known for travelling the southeast and taking notes to be able to duplicate many of the details of Southern historical homes.   One of the many reasons I love them.

I know, 25 years is a pretty strong standing tradition… but I feel some change could be in order, I am thinking a different color, High Gloss Black? I like the fact that the shutters are already black and it would all tie in together but I am a bit hesitant – It's hard to break 25 years of the same thing. And don’t even tell my children, (grown and gone, but) … “Mom, you changed everything!” - every time they come home… even if it’s just moving the salt and pepper shakers to a different spot on the countertop in the kitchen! Does this happen to you too?

So with all this into consideration, I am putting this one out to you…
Help Me Choose the Color of my Front Door:
RED FRONT DOOR?

Take your time, think it over, there's no right or wrong answer. Should I…
  
REPEAT THE RED?
