The front of our 1930s mock tudor house and garage is being painted soon. The windows and walls are white, but I'm tempted to put a mild green on the garage door and the front door, eg farrow and ball cooking apple green. I've just striped decades of paint off the large garage door hinges, and they need a coat of hammerite. Should this be black (i don't think so), white (i reckon) or something else? Any other thoughts v welcome!
I have to say if I found a cooking apple that colour I'd chuck it in the bin because it would be mouldy - it is a nice colour though! What sort of garage door is it? Have you got pic or link to similar sort?
I have a big larder cupboard in my kitchen painted cooking apple green. The other units are lime white. I think you need an "off white" to coordinate rather than a "bright" white. Otherwise pointing from F&B is a good choice.
thanks. it's a wooden door, with windows, and big old original iron hinges with the maker's name and a crown symbol on them. The bog-standard white is non-negotiable, so the only choice i have is what colour to paint the doors whether to paint the hinges in something else. good idea to ring f & b. i might take a photo round to their shop and see what they say.
