Everyone loves a red front door, even I love a red front door, so I was excited when we bought our house, that it had a red front door.
However, as we’ve torn down walls and completely changed the inside of the house, over the last 2 years, I started to feel like the red front door didn’t quite “work” anymore. I thought about painting it dark purple, and found some great inspiration pictures on Pinterest.
But I wasn’t 100% sure about the color so I held off and thought about it some more. As I continued to change/add/makeover things in the house, I started thinking that maybe purple wasn’t the right color. I noticed that I’d been drawn to more blues, especially when making over our eat-in kitchen area and our outdoor living room. We also have a lot of teal in our house, and the inside of the front door is teal, and since blue and teal go together so well, I eventually decided that blue would be the best option for the front door. I wasn’t sure which shade I wanted so I went to Pinterest again. You can see all my inspiration doors HERE but this blue door was my favorite. 🙂
After finding the perfect inspiration door I headed to Lowes to find the perfect color. I brought home two samples but ended up choosing Royal Navy by Valspar. It wasn’t too teal, too gray, too 80’s blue, it was perfect.
I love the way the door turned out and even through the red was pretty, I think the blue is so much more fitting.
I also love they way the blue brings out some of the darker bricks on the porch, the color turned out even better than I’d hoped it would!
What color is your front door? Have you ever thought about painting it? In our last house I painted the door black
I also painted a friend’s door yellow. I love finding the perfect color for each house. 🙂
