It is no secret we love fun colored doors. Why ever would you choose to have a plain normal door if you could choose any hue on the color wheel! Here are a few of our favorite doors we've done recently. Hopefully, seeing these will help boost your courage if you've been wondering if your house could pull off a bright poppy door!
We love how this bright green door, above, pairs with the cedar shakes!
We love thepastwhispers.com fabulous summary on the history of bright colored doors which began in the early 18th century!:
"It's said (usually by tour guides) that the writer George Moore lived next door to another well-known writer, Oliver St. John Gogarty. Both were a bit eccentric and, so the story goes, Moore painted his door green so that the drunken Gogarty wouldn't mistakenly come knocking on it late at night"
Now the trend to paint doors fun colors is still alive (even if you haven't had trouble finding your house when you're tipsy)!
And if you are really ready to brighten up your interior, you may go for a look like Heather Taylor's L.A. home from domino.com. Don't you love this?
We love this breezy light teal door- it gives this neutral painted house so much character! Painting the porch ceiling to coordinate with the door might seem like a tiny detail, but can actually make a big difference in the overall look of the house! If you are wondering how to do this, pick a lighter shade than the door for your ceiling (for example, we used Hazel SW6471 for the door and SW6469 Dewy for the ceiling).
Isn't this the perfect pink door?! Homey Oh My shows off this amazing pink interior door. We love the trend of painting the interior side of the door the same color as the exterior!
Red doors are not only adorable, but they also have many different cultural meanings around the world! Read about them here and decide which is your favorite!
We were looking for the perfect lipstick red and landed on Raven Red SW6608.
If you're not into red, you might try a coral door- we think this Quite Coral SW6614 is gorgeous!
And if you are still working up the bravery to give your house a colorful door, remember, you can always start with the back door. We love Little Green Notebook's work here!
We hope you feel a little more inspired to add a pop of color to your exterior! If you are ready to paint your door, follow these helpful instructions from Love Pomegranate House and Real Simple. If you've painted your door an offbeat color you love, we would love to see how it turned out!
