Color your front door

We live in a time when non-conformism is a way to go through life and interior design is a great proof! If you were used to brown furniture, white ceilings and dark front doors, you may want to revise your standards and admit that this is in our past and nowadays we’re seeing things so much wider and in colors! Speaking about colors, did you notice a design tendency to paint your front door in bright colors such as reds, yellows and blues? I did! It looks fantastic, it’s basically creating a cheery atmosphere for the home from outside! I’ve heard people prefer yellow front doors, wanting probably to bring the sunshine in, but I do like how other colors look too. So in case you’d like to make your front door  to be a colorful spot – I’m with you! And I found some nice examples for you:


navy blue

olive green





Would you dare to do it? A hot fuchsia front door? That’s amazingly beautiful and I guarantee your door will be one of a kind!

    I love painted front doors! That second door is calling my name. You’ve convinced me: as soon as I move into a place with a front door I will absolutely paint it blue or red.

    Ohhh they are all so fantastic, but I think the pink at top and the canary yellow take the cake! Wish I had a front door to paint! The woes of renting…

    Hi: Just came over to you from Ez’s blog..
    Oh, these doors are great. You know, I’ve been reading several posts in the last week re. front doors; but your visuals have got to be the best! That green door is just fabulous.
    We are moving in a few months. The present front door is drab green, so I’ve begun to think about it. Maybe, just maybe, something like that vibrant green above! I’ll post when we repaint…
