Colortopia

I've been obsessed with color lately, so I decided to take it outdoors.  My front door is completely boring, while some of my neighbors have different shades of red, blue, green and yellow--I'm totally jealous!

I just love a red door...it's classic! But a green house with a red door just doesn't seem to fit, it seems a little too christmas-ey or maybe not!  I found this one and I kinda like it.  It's a bungalow style house just like ours and it looks good...I wonder what color red this is?



I am comtelplating painting our front door yellow like this one...


I'm inspired everytime I ride in the Fan and see all the colorful doors that I would have never thought of, but look absolutely ah-mazing! Sort of like these...



Here's what the front of our house looks like--what color do you think we should paint our front door?

  1. I think the red door would look adorable. I get your Christmas-y comment, but I don't think that will be peoples' first thought. Go for it! Afterall, it's just paint, you can always redo it.

  2. Tyesha... OMG! I cannot believe I live near such creative people. Oh...the plans I have made in my mind for you and your husband to help me! I think you should paint your from door a deep red (wine or maroon)or change it up and go with a rustic natural brown.

    1. Yes! It looks much better when you have a bright, fun colored door. I can't wait to start on mine...still deciding on the paint color.

    1. We decided to go with Snapdragon Yellow....which is a love, hate relationship ;) I wish we would have chosen red from the very beginning, but everything it trial and error. Check out the post on how the door turned out below.
