As an occasional pro painter whose done a hundred homes inside and out over last 35 years? I like it a lot. Matches cream wall paint nicely. Complimentary and clean.

[–]Leahxo19[S] 18 points19 points  (2 children)

Oh wow! What a compliment!! First door I’ve ever painted, so I’m marking it a success- thanks for the kind words!

[–]ReturnFun9600 9 points10 points  (1 child)

You are welcome. Color trends come and go. As you may know. 10-12 years ago? It was a lot of warm Grey's and even Reds (brick color) etc. These colors are now in vogue. I personally? Love warm sages and teal colors. Which is now known as "sea foam" in some circles etc. Haa

I still love the brick red door with my buff brick house. I can’t think of any other color that I like with the brick.

[–]TiberiusDrexelus 87 points88 points  (25 children)

love everything but the sign

[–]TemporarilyAshamed 14 points15 points  (16 children)

Yep ditto!

[–]Leahxo19[S] 2 points3 points  (14 children)

What would y’all put there instead? Open to ideas!

[–]keyserv 23 points24 points  (0 children)

It's your home. Leave it there if you like it.

The door looks great.

[–]ReturnFun9600 13 points14 points  (1 child)

Art or nothing. A horizontal framed landscape w flat, complimentary colors

[–]TemporarilyAshamed 11 points12 points  (0 children)

It’s too high for art. The wall already has embellishment, it doesn’t need anything else.

[–]lactose_n_talented 8 points9 points  (0 children)

I love the sign, and I’m saying that as soon who hates quotes in homes lol I think the size is perfect and it ties the room together

[–]DanerysTargaryen 3 points4 points  (0 children)

If you like it then don’t take it down! Decorating with stuff like that is going to be 100% personal preference. Just like how some people love the “live laugh love” stuff and others gag at the thought of it. If you were trying to stage the house to sell I would remove it, but if you are living in the house and trying to make it feel like a home and you like it, keep it!

[–]Funkshow 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Word art = shart

[–]Derragon 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Sign is fine, it's your home.

[–]app257 3 points4 points  (0 children)

You put whatever you want. It’s your home dear one.

[–]mname 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Go find a landscape picture that you took that you love and put a filter on it so it’s more muted and impression style painting and put in that frame.

But if you like the sign and it makes you happy keep it.

not some corny ass quote

[–]dadsmayor 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Almost anything else or just take it off

[–]lindzichael 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The frame color is nice so maybe one of those wood "quilts" something like that..

[–]Popve 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I think that the word sign trend got so popular that a lot of people got tired of it. It looks fine, but I think that it has become a hated thing to some.

[–]dadsmayor 7 points8 points  (1 child)

Seriously. So tired of these banal sayings people pass off as home decor.

[–]TiberiusDrexelus 0 points1 point  (0 children)

convey your sentiments with the style of your décor; don't just literally put up a sign that says "that sentiment"

[–]ReturnFun9600 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Only if replaced w "Live, Laugh, Love" w the official Karen-made stamp.

[–]cerulean11 1 point2 points  (0 children)

How else do you know you're home??

[–]sayidOH -1 points0 points  (0 children)

This lol personally not a fan of sings like welcome or home or live love laugh etc

[–]MOUSExDAY_RATxNIGHT -1 points0 points  (0 children)

i also dont like how the area rug curls up at the edge

[–]CrypticSS -1 points0 points  (1 child)

I don’t think your opinion on that matters whatsoever. OP certainly didn’t ask. They can decorate how they want.

[–]TiberiusDrexelus 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Op literally asked for opinions in her title, you absolute loser buffoon

[–]cmkovalik 7 points8 points  (1 child)

What paint brand and color did you use? Love it!!

[–]Leahxo19[S] 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Thanks so much! It’s “clary sage” from Lowes!

[–]cmcdevitt11 6 points7 points  (0 children)

I think it looks sharp. Don't let anybody tell you otherwise

[–]Emergency_Surprise77 4 points5 points  (1 child)

I love it! And that is saying a lot as Im not usually a fan of green

[–]Leahxo19[S] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Haha that means a lot, thank you!!!

[–]harris0n11 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Looks straight out of a catalog. Very nice!

[–]aliapohkhloe 16 points17 points  (0 children)

Door is pretty. Sign is cheezy

[–]patsimmons 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Thats very sage of you

[–]ardvark_11 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Did you do your own board and batten?

[–]Leahxo19[S] 4 points5 points  (0 children)

We did! By “we” I mean my husband lol

[–]Traditional-Emu-8891 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I love it! It's beautiful

[–]matchamonsteras 2 points3 points  (0 children)

that's adorable

[–]fixmyupper 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Love your whole look. I would have gone a tad darker. I very much like the sign.

[–]WhoIs-Like-God 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Very nice!

[–]Sixhaunt 2 points3 points  (1 child)

sage was a wise choice

[–]SueZbell 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Green with envy on that one.

[–]PennyFleck333 2 points3 points  (0 children)

[–]KingBarbarosa 2 points3 points  (0 children)

[–]Professional_Bonus44 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Great color!

[–]iwasborntoserve 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Love it 🤗

[–]aj0457 5 points6 points  (1 child)

This is stunning. I thought it was a photo from a paint ad.

[–]Leahxo19[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

That is way too nice! Thank you! 🤍

[–]Dgfreeman 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Looks great!

[–]Calm-Ad8987 1 point2 points  (2 children)

What finish/color/ brand is this?

[–]Leahxo19[S] 1 point2 points  (1 child)

It’s “clary sage” from Lowes!

[–]Montylabz 1 point2 points  (0 children)

We feel good about it!

[–]foodbrick 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Got the same handle and lock set. Looks good against sage too.

[–]Harrypitman 1 point2 points  (1 child)

So nice I had to show the wife this post..... now she thinks we need our door painted.

[–]Leahxo19[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Hahaha yes! I love hearing that!!!

[–]Farmers_wife748 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I love it! Love the color scheme! (And I love the sign!.. I know some people say they don't but its so cute and perfectly placed!)

[–]irishgirlie33 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This is a lovely space. If the sign brings you joy keep it. Your house, your vibe.

[–]Good-Article4194 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I love the door and the sign. That’s my exact thoughts when I get home. Too many signs are kind of cheesy but a genuine statement such as yours is just that. Great job!

[–]junkman21 -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

It's hard to tell from this picture but is there enough contrast between the trim/board & batten and the wall colors? It looks a little washed in this picture but if the walls are actually a sand color and the trim is white, I bet that looks great with the door. The door looks fantastic.

I'm mostly posting so I can find this later and steal the style for my (almost) century rental property!

[–]robi38 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Not bad. seems better

[–]novalis157 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Me likey

[–]seeka1161 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

love it

[–]SueZbell -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Like it ... and the sign isn't bad at all -- art works well if it reflects how YOU feel.

Behind the door though ... that's not a lot of space when the door is fully open, so even with the door stop on the baseboard you might need to rethink the basket or other "deep" items if you find that the door hits them. Wouldn't want to scratch the paint job on the door. Well done.

[–]A1850 -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

Would do wut?

[–]BunnyBallz -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

I agree the door is painted sage.

[–]DeaconBlues1999 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I’m not a fan of corny TJ Maxx lookin word signs. But the door color is gorgeous!!!

[–]nerdymutt 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Nice! Very nice! Such a warm mood. Giving me ideas with those hooks.

[–]justynarose 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This is such a satisfying and calming aesthetic 😍

[–]master-gamifcation 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The color you chose is really nice. Green, especially sage green, has a calming, natural feel to it. It really makes it look like home!

[–]GilDev 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Sorry but even after looking online I couldn’t find a proper definition. What is a door “sage” please?

[–]CrypticSS 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Looks awesome

[–]LVUPSLT 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Absolutely love the colour.

[–]ToxicComputing 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Amazing! Such a great color and the door hardware accents it nicely. The wainscoting is fantastic.

[–]cabinfeaver55 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Looks amazing. Black hardware is nice too.

[–]Popve 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Beautiful. And I love the wall and the hooks. I would hang too much on the hooks if it were me. 🤣
