Summer has arrived! My name is Carrie, I’m an associate decorator with Narrative Interiors in North Bay. I am absolutely loving the Coastal Vibe that is trending this season especially when we consider the extension of our homes into our outdoor spaces. You can easily bring hints of the sea to your front porch by painting your front door in a shade of blue, adding the natural elements of rattan seating, cozy pillows, delightful planters and nautical inspired lighting which when brought together are sure to create a wonderful retreat right on your front porch.

Yes, we may have the tools, the experience and the talent to create a great space but we also look for some of our inspiration perhaps in the same places as you do. This classic front door is from one of our favourite designers Jillian Harris’s beautiful home. She chose Benjamin Moore Athabasca CC- 816 a fun light blue paired with satin nickel hardware although a matte black would have looked equally as stunning.

Not sure if it’s the symmetry or the simplicity of this front entrance that makes it so inviting. A perfect navy blue colour such as Hale navy HC-154 would help give a front door a refined and polished statement. Painting this door a light blue would completely change the feel of the space.

If this door could talk I’m sure it would say put your laptop away, grab a book, a towel and some lemonade and let’s relax. Our Benjamin Moore pick for this door would be Blue Grass CC 640. This colour seems like the perfect combination of sky, water and landscape.
