What's Next For The Purple Door?

A Few Accessories Added
Take a Step Through...

Here is our purple door further along in the process of completion. Although the door placement itself is architecturally average, the color choice plus the accessories selected create some fun!

This door is the front door to our vacation cottage rental. Available for vacationers to come and stay one mile from the gulf coast beaches in Pinellas County... the purple color choice has blossomed into using The Purple Door as an icon for The HLH Vacation Cottage. I could have selected the typical beach colors, but instead I wanted to create a color scheme descriptive of the cottage's name and theme.

Your adventure begins... 
Just through... The Purple Door!

A Marketing Theme Developing
By LaAFL! (Living an Art-Filled Life!) -
being artistic enough to choose a color I like -
inspiration of that choice has led to a uniqueness that I can use to market the cottage.

We will be expanding on the Key West vibe of this natural artistic property encouraging vacationers to feel relaxed and creative about spending their vacation here based on the Heartlocket Hollow Property!

Please note that choosing accessories that compliment the door color allow the choice to feel right and less radical. As the design is added to, accessory choices have a direction... anything purple, "Key-Westish", vacation themed and/or artistic themed will add to the overall design until it is the fun-filled vignette to remember! We have inspiration for future improvements and a statement that communicates the emotion and theme I desire to create.

This is what I call putting your heart in the art and LaAFL! Part of my heart is in the artistic choices!

Come and stay at The HLH Artistic Cottage! For more information:

LaAFL! Though Paint Color Choices

First Coat on the door - The walls will soon be pale
lilac & white trim. Then we will add the accessories to
complete the look!
The Purple Door
What color will you paint yours?

LaAFL (Living and Art-Filled Life) easily extends to paint color choices, yeah?

Who is to say that you have to paint your own home is such a fashion that it is resell-able?  If you go in and out of your own door 10 times in one day... 7 days a week... 52 weeks in one year... why would you not treat yourself  to a delightful color? Let the next owners paint the door their own color!

In the mean time:

Live Your Own Personality!!!

So we can say that LaAFL! is about expressing oneself, while at the same time discovering oneself. Being bold enough to put it on your very own front door is a coup (stroke of genius, achievement, accomplishment) that will greet you many times a day!

How do I choose the right color so that I will like it when it is finished?
How to I handle the comments from others who don't get it? 
What other accents can I add to compliment my colorful front door?

These are questions we hope to explore in upcoming HLH blog posts! In the mean time... I would love to see any front door out their that has personality. If you would love to share a picture of your front door, please post a picture of it on the Heartlocket Hollow Facebook Page. Then please a comment with your own suggestions and ideas below!
