Coloured Front Doors – Spring Has Sprung!

When thinking about ways to spruce up your home and give it a little extra street appeal, changing the colour of the front door is always a thought that pops to mind. Coloured front doors are gaining in popularity and while The Builder may not allow me to paint our 100 year old door, a girl can dream right?

Pink is always an eye catching colour, this muted pink is a perfect choice for those who don’t want to go too far out!

What first attracted me to this image, was the space, so beautifully complementary is the teal door colour, from this angle it wasn’t the first thing I saw. The teal colour the door is painted in, is thought to mimic the original colour of this farmhouse door.

I am crushing hard on the simple symmetry of this front door, the colour is a beautiful touch to add to that symmetry. What a wonderful statement door.

This is what I would do with our front door, if The Builder was amicable about painting it. I adore the way the white of the door surrounds makes the stained glass pop and brightens the whole area. The gloss black adds to the drama of the entry.

I think yellow to be the happiest colour of them all. How wonderful it would be to walk through this happy front door each day!

We saw lots of red doors in London, in fact we saw lots of coloured doors all over England. It is where my passion for them began. Nothing makes a statement like red!

If you are looking for the perfect soft blue, this colour is a Benjamin Moore in Tranquil Blue, and it is just dreamy. How wonderful would this colour be for a seaside home.

This entire home is gracefully understated, as is the colour choice for the front door. Gorgeous.

Coloured front doors are a fun way to add your personality to your home, and create that extra punch from the street.

Would you consider painting your front door? What colour would you choose?

  1. Such pretty front doors, I love the pink but the dark blue is quite stunning as well. It sure beats boring timber and glass which you see driving around most blocks in rural Australia.

  2. I would love to paint our front door but strata forbids it. That said, our door is a not objectionable shade of blue but I would still love the freedom to change if I wanted to! Growing up in England, we always had so many different coloured doors and I still love looking at the variety of colours when I go back to visit.
