Knock Knock

A few years back, after returning from England, I decided to paint MY FRONT DOOR blue. I don’t think it is the best color choice for my house (agree?). And anyways, I’ve got an itch to change it. Now if I had a white house really any color might suit it but for now these are the colors I’m stuck on or rather considering . . .
*Yellow (for some reason I can’t get enough yellow- shoes, doors, purses, etc- more yellow doors)
*Greenish
*Black

Do you have a colorful front door or a favorite front door color? If your considering a color change like me, this idea over here is pretty nifty.

    Oh, I think a lacquerd high-gloss enamel paint in black would be ultra sophisticated. xx's

    I think a black or greenish door would be lovely!
    I would love to paint my front door a fun colour but unfort in Australia we get so many flies that we have to have a screen door infront of our main door and it just doesn't have the same effect. You'll have to post pics when/if you do it!

    Go for it, it's as easy as picking up a paint brush. It will bring a smile to your face each time you see it.

    Love a happy yellow door. Ours is stained wood but love a pop of color on the door.

    Funny, I want a yellow or orange door now. Those doors make me want to step inside and say "anybody home?" Love them.

    I am loving yellow lately, too.

    I love that yellow door idea. I am always drawn to bright colours when I'm walking the street. I can also think of a few memorable red doors. They look more welcoming than my dreary front door.

    Great article. I totally agree with the first comment.
    "High gloss in black." Tres chic.-)

    I agree – high gloss black would look amazing on your house. Our front door is pillarbox red on a cream and grey weatherboard and I just love it! Makes the house look happy and cozy!
