Readers' Design Dilemmas: Matching Interior & Exterior Paint

Happy Monday folks!

I hope everyone had a relaxing weekend!

Today's design dilemma question comes from Sarah :

"How important is it to match your interior paint with your exterior? (Especially the first room you walk into from the front door.)"

I think this is a very good question. My answer would be that your exterior paint does NOT HAVE to match your interior paint. 

BUT, as with all design, if your exterior colors are coordinated with the interior--and specifically the first room--then you are definitely going to have a very nice FLOW upon entering your home. 

 More specifically if you are painting the outside of your home, for example, dark gray with black shutters, it could look really nice in your foyer/entryway to bring in those colors with furniture, accessories such as indoor rug, indoor paint, etc. 

On the other hand, you could choose a bright a red for high impact in the interior entryway. This doesn't exactly "MATCH" the exterior, but it would give it character and a certain panache!

I hope this helps Sarah!

XOXO

And, on since we're on this topic, here are some great entryway photos!

Same idea too, exterior color doesn't have to match the interior. Keeping the the exterior plain with 2 colors while playing with colors on the inside. Every area in the house should have character and mood. It doesn't have to follow one particular shade.
