Hue Knew: Curb Appeal with a Purple Front Door

I was shooting a video in Orange County this past week and literally stopped the car to jump out and grab a snap of this home.  I absolutely love the personality and vibrant energy this homeowner instilled in their home. Talk about curb appeal!

The beautiful shakes on the house made for a gorgeous, natural backdrop to this eclectic tropical color palette – starting with that killer purple!  It’s a deep eggplant that is perfectly trimmed out in this yellow-green celery color.  It’s wild, exciting color pays off when you factor in their tropical Bird of Paradise plants and shorter decorative palm trees.

It’s risky business, but I dig it.

    Amen! I'm with you Marleen. Mine has been a deep royal bluish-purple since 1997 and I still love it!

    No color should be "off limits" if it's what inspires you and you love the color. I'd paint my front door purple.
