Have you thought about painting your front door? It can be a great place to add color and communicate your personal sense of style. Lately, I have been attracted to colorful front doors. Here are some examples paired with a similar paint color to help you in the selection process.
This sweet pink front door looks great with the cottage’s gray shingle siding and white trim – pink would certainly not go with just any color scheme. It definitely evokes a welcoming, relaxed and more feminine feeling. Now picture this same door in black. Still a great color choice, but would give off a more formal feeling. Thanks to The Pinque, Inc Diaries for this lovely image!
Here is a striking luscious red door by designer Suzanne Tucker. She used a high quality gloss by Dutch Boy that resists dirt, oil and grease. The red really works with the gray siding and white trim. In Feng Shui, a red door symbolizes the mouth of the home. It is thought a red door attracts chi – positive energy – to the house. We all can use some of that!
This Baltimore home with dark gray siding and white trim – hey a pattern here! – looks stylish and modern with a vibrant front door in orange. The color orange denotes energy, warmth and cheerfulness. An orange front door would also look great with another opposing exterior color scheme like light blue siding and navy blue trim.
Sunny, cheery and inviting. This natural brick home with white trim looks stunning with a bright canary yellow door. If you like this look Benjamin Moore’s Yellow Tone might do the trick.
This home found on Real Simple was painted a softer yellow. The pale yellow accent is a perfect choice for the muted gray shingle siding and white trim. Love it.
This chic foyer designed by Albert Hadley features a bright chartreuse front door. It is not clear what color the exterior siding and trim is, but this door color would look great with shades of gray, blue or brown with a white trim.
Designer Kathryn Ireland brightens a Spanish Colonial Revival in Southern California with a stunning teal painted door. It is a perfect color selection for the home’s white exterior.
