What colour shutters?

I would like to say that I am happy for the weekend to be here and the chance to get outside and work on the windows/door/shutters! This morning I found this blog post by Victoria Elizabeth Barnes and am now getting more excited for our red front door.

But now…I was planning on painting the shutters grey before like in this previous post “Outside” with the red door, grey window frame trim + a black handrail. But after seeing the previous post by Victoria I am debating paint the shutters a high-gloss black? We live in a desert climate and the front of our house is east facing so the sun will kick the red pigments a** – but I think the black would be ‘ok’. I can’t quite decide.

Our existing house

Help please! Happy Friday!

    try it out in photoshop! i love the idea of a pop of colour somewhere. we’re doing all dark for the details around our house (door, shutter, woodstain), and i’m sort of wishing we’d chosen a bright colour for the door…but glossy black is very you, too 🙂
