  2. Ours is burgundy. But out house siding is sort of a slate blue. If we had tons of money laying around I'd love to some of these fresher colors. Love these pictures!

  3. Ours was a hideous green when we moved in, I painted it black, then I painted the sidelights black ~ hated it~! Painted the sidelights white again, painted the door red...I think I am happy now...

    I think...

  7. My house is what my children dubbed 'smurf blue' and my door is a rustic deep red. Loving the blues as it's my favorite color!

  8. I love these blue doors. I might have to get the paint back out! I painted mine a bright green a couple of years ago and before that I had it bright pink. It might be time for a change to blue! My cottage is yellow. I love color!

  9. That last photo was an inspiration to me. I couldn't use light blue though for my door because it would clash with the trim. So I used a color called Meadow Mist. It's more of a minty green, I guess. I like it! I love blue doors. I was going to do a post about them awhile back but couldn't find as many nice pics as you have. :)

  10. Our front door is boring old white. I've tried to think of a better color but it's' hard with our brick exterior. I love that seafoam green/blue door you showed, maybe it's time for a change! My sister's door is salmon colored and it rocks!

  11. Wonderful pics! So inspiring. My door is a plain, boring white, but thinking of doing something crazy with it. I love, love, love all the pics you posted.

  12. Currently my front door is red but I'm getting bored with red and that blue is truly looking appealing! I was thinking of going black but I think it is to dark for my house. Guess I'll have to get some swatches and try out some colors.

  13. How lovely...we are building a new old farmhouse...white siding, black roof, rows of slender 2 over 2 windows, full length front and back porch...and the loveliest thing about it...is the 8 foot reproduction front door that we are painting BLUE (about the shade of the 4th door in your post)!!! So nice to see others like it as well!!!

    Thanks for sharing..just lovely!!

  21. There is a beautiful blue door along one of the paths I walk.

    Our front door is ligh creme ~ not very exciting. I just can't seem to come up with a color that looks nice on a Tudor style home. Suggestions?

  25. This post is really making me rethink my front door color. We are replacing the door and so I have been trying out paint colors on my old door before it is replaced. I was going with a black-brown but not I am rethinking that choice.
    Thanks for sharing.

  26. I am in process of refabbing my old 50's house, it is now a light gray with a med-dark blue/gray trim, front door is north so I need the right color of blue for my door. I kept originial wood door as it has 4 panels of carved flowers in it, LOVE IT, but what color blue? Feng shui says blue or black for north facing. I was going a Wine color but I love these blues, any thoughts?
    Thanks, Annette in Tejas

  27. I'm curious about your house and trim colors. Light gray with dark gray trim would work with a blue. It is hard to say without seeing it. Also take into consideration any flowering trees or shrubs that you have in the front yard so that they don't clash.

  28. Do you know the color/brand of the 2md door pictured, #114? Looking for a house project for the long weekend. Thanks!

  29. Zarz, I wish I could be more help, but I haven't a clue about the colors in this post. Sorry.

  30. I hope you're still monitoring comments. As we've hit age 70, we wanted a one-story house so as to age in place. We've bought a raised brick rancher, built in 1961. Our door is the original sort of light maple colored wood-in good shape but boring/kind of ugly. I want to paint it and was thinking a dark French blue. However......while the brick is not as "orangie" as some brick, I'm concerned with your comment that your blue door brought out red. Do you think my color choice would bring out more orange? If so, what color would downplay the orange? I'd also considered expresso (brown/black).
