Painting an entryway can be challenging. You want to make a statement, welcome people to your home or business, and still keep the look appropriate to the setting and community. It's an outdoor space, and yet it's part of your home, the element of your house that provides the transition to the indoor space.
In this example, you can see that the architecture is distinguished and the owners want to bring that out. We're using neutral tones here, so we want to make sure to have plenty of texture. Sculpture, latticework, a variety of materials, and plants take care of that here, so our simple neutral palette provides a serene counterpoint.
In this case,a simple side entrance relies on colour to make it stand out.
One more example shows how varied textures and a neutral palette work together with strong contrast to create an entry with character.
Three very different approaches to the entry, yet all of them use basic principles of design and fine painting to create dramatic statements. All of these examples are from the work of Sydney painters Courtney & Wise. If you're in Sydney or the Northern Beaches, call us at 9958 1099 to discuss your painting and decorating needs.
