Behind the Red Door: Savannah

After an 11-day marathon session of getting our new shop space open (more pics on that to come!), Jeff and I hit the road for a little R&R. Our favorite stop, by far, was Savannah. From the hanging Spanish moss to the historic Savannah Squares to cheese grits, I was in love with this city. Not to mention that it's not only legal, but highly encouraged, to walk around and drink adult beverages in the streets. Why had we not visited sooner?

It's a very walkable city and we did a ton of walking, taking in all of the historic homes and architecture (it also helped walk-off my daily dose of cheese grits and Chatham Artillery Punch). It didn't take us long to notice all of the beautiful, red doors. Obviously we had to snap pics of as many as we could!

Seeing all of these homes with red doors reminded us of how boring our front door is right now.

Following our stay in Savannah, we attended a blog conference and met the nice people from Modern Masters. They just happen to make a no-fade door paint. In bright red (it's called Ambitious). A week later, look what showed up at our front door:

What do you think...should we go for it?


  1. Totally! That is a fantastic shade of red. Love all of the red doors you captured on your trip!

  2. Yesssssss! It's just paint and I love coming home to my red door. x

  3. I agree, ladies! The bright red just makes me happy.

  4. Love it! Do it, do it, do it! It will look amazing with your house colors.

  5. Gosh I think I told you this but savanna is one of my favorite cities in the entire world. It's so gorgeous there in such a fun place to explore and obviously lots of eye candy. Can't wait to see how your door turns out super sad I missed that this somehow.
