Colorful Doors

This past weekend, I went up to Seattle with the girls to check in on my best friend and the new house she and her husband are building.  Flying solo with the girls was a challenge, to say the least, but it was worth it for some quality time with good friends.

My friend is to the point where they are finalizing paint for the exterior of the home.  They are going with this very pretty dark gray blue that will be gorgeous.  The front door is currently white and it is now up to me to convince them to paint it a fun pop of color.  I think it’ll be so lovely and it’ll really add to the curb appeal of their already beautiful home.

Imagine all these homes below without a colored front door; they would all lack the fun pop.

My top choice is currently yellow –




My second choice is a classic red –






My third choice would be a green – either kelly or moss




My fingers are crossed they will take the plunge with a color.  I personally love a glossy door and if you go that route, I highly recommend using Fine Paints of Europe in high gloss; it works great when painting wood.  I’ll let you know if they go with a color and post an after pic.

What color is your front door?

    How fun…and adventurous of you to take off with the girls solo! I’m a big fan of red doors on gray-blue houses, myself, but do like the look of a couple of the yellow ones above.

    I want the gray blue house with white trim and the yellow door! (No 2) Do you know the paint colors? I seriously want to copy that onto my house! 🙂
