Doors with Real Wild Color

The doors to our house are painted Farrow & Ball Mouse’s Back. Yup, you read that right, Mouse’s Back:

Farrow-and-Ball-Mouse's-Back-Paint

It’s a beautiful sophisticated color. It’s also safe. It doesn’t stick its neck out and scream “HEY! Come here! Look at me! You come up here NOW! You must see what’s here!” Veins strainin’, eyes buggin’, a real wild color.

These wild screamin’ doors will not be overlooked, and that’s what I like about them even if I couldn’t put these colors on my house …

This is at Neal’s Yard Deli in Covent Garden, London. So you see, wild color is everywhere (except on my front doors). By Andrea Kennard:

All these doors make me want to do this to our Mouse’s Back:

Take-That-Mouse's-Back

There, take that!

If someone gave you a brush, and a pail of wild paint, and offered you a dare, what would you do?

You can find many more exotic doors on my Doors Pinterest Board. Enjoy!
