The Very Best of…Front Door Colors

This is our edition of the Very Best of…Front Door Colors— of course until there are more that surpass these in bestiness.

This door is on an interesting modern Georgian farmhouse fusion, pretty wild combo

I’ve always liked this simple modern entry

yellow door

The old Blueprint mag cover. Makes you want to go out paint your whole cottage white with a little black trim on the gables, get some modern steel house numbers and some of those barn lights from Lowes, and don’t forget your IKEA watering can to get all styled up for your photo opp.

This is really tempting to me. I have warm brown shingles on my house with white trim and I’ve really been thinking about this,

blue on shingles

Before we could spruce up the Connecticut Ave duplex, I painted the front doors a color similar to this to shape the place up temporarily. It’s a stately blue.

I know all you beachy cottage loving boys and girls want to know what this color is and according to most sources on the interwebs, it’s Ben Moore’s Wythe Blue

We couldn’t talk about front door color without mentioning the exquisite front entry of the townhome of designer Miles Redd,

pale blue door

Even if this is not your style, surely you must appreciate the detail and sophistication here,

cool blue grey

Again with that quiet blue/green,

sage door

OK things got a bit serious there now we’re back to a little more fun in a coastal cottage with robin’s egg blue paired with yellow shingles,

I love those big tall french entry doors with a quarter of the bottom a solid panel and lime green well that just makes it all the more better, again with the barn light

the contrast is paramount here, love it

having a little fun with a traditional entry, clearly there was risk that the gas lanterns were going to make things too formal,

green door

this shade of spruce green is so rich, wonder if it’s pine scented?

Coral and navy, now that’s something you don’t see everyday

a pattern will emerge, light blue likes to commiserate with orange quite often

and rounding up the round up, is pink and peach on old brick, pretty dope if you ask me. Please email me if you actually do this to your brick house and then convince your neighbor to use the other color.

pink and peach

Thanks for playing,
