I’m still sorting through all my vacation pictures and I have so much to share with you. Today though, I’m thinking about front doors. I’ve been considering painting my front door for a few months now. You can see what it currently looks like here. While I was in England, my cousin (who I had just met) was showing me pictures of her house on her phone. She suddenly started apologizing because she had a few pictures of front doors that she had taken for inspiration. It was then I knew we were going to be fast friends! Someone else that takes cell phone pictures of painting ideas! Instant friend! I love finding inspiration in nature, in fabrics, in design catalogs- but sometimes you need the real deal. Picking a front door color seems like such a big decision for me. I’m not sure why—it’s just paint? So I was thrilled when I was walking around London, and even in the rain I saw the most amazing doors. I certainly don’t see these door colors in my Texas neighborhood! Maybe because of the rain, they like perky, cheerful colors! Either way, I was thankful that many were with the similar red brick I have on my house. After sorting through them, I picked my favorites and decided to share them with you. Because I figure you might like some front door colors for inspiration too! Maybe you take cell phone pictures for painting ideas too? See. I knew we were going to be fast friends!
I really love how the yellow door here pops. If you notice, they have little yellow flowers starting to grow. I think it compliments the green moss from the sidewalk well too. The black is classic and sleek.
I’m really drawn to this blue. Of course I am. I’ve used this on several furniture redo’s (Secretary Desk & 3 drawer Dresser)! I think it would go nicely with winter decor around the holidays. Very soft and relaxing.
This classic grey adds a little touch of grace – it’s not as bold as black. I like it next to the white. I think it makes a great back drop for colorful plants or vintage planters.
I love this blue with the red brick! It seems like such a natural fit (think US flags, or the Union Jack). Wouldn’t that look so lovely decorated during patriotic holidays?
I don’t think you could go wrong with this green. Just like evergreens in your yard, it works all year round.
Last but not least—one of my favorites. I adore this door! It just looks so cheerful. It compliments the colors of nature so well and just pops! I don’t think my husband would let me go this bold though. What do you think? And don’t you just love the circle window? British doors just seem so much more fun than my Texas door!
I hope you enjoyed these fun front doors! I’ll keep you posted on when I paint mine—any guesses on which color I am picking?
