I know I mentioned it at some point. Our main doors are made of two massive blocks of wood that are glued together. They're solid as rocks, but not the prettiest things. One is painted white and the other is brown. Eventually, they need to be replaced. That's not a top priority, but I thought I might slap a coat of paint on them to freshen them up while we work on other projects.
What color? I'm not sure yet. The house is a little lighter than cornflower blue. It would look nice with so many colors.
When I was younger, I loved glossy, red doors. When I imagined my future home, though the style and size of the house changed, the red door was always there.
This next image actually look a lot like our front door (though ours has a storm door on it).
It would look so beautiful during the holidays.
Pink is unexpected, but I love it.
The light, baby pink in the next image wouldn't look great with our house color.
It would be "very Virginia" to have a blue house with an orange door. We would get so many brownie points from our Wahoo neighbors. In case you don't know, University of Virginia's colors are blue and orange.
A strong yellow would probably look fantastic with our house color.
I'm throwing some green doors in just because they're pretty. I don't think this color would be quite right on our house.
Blue on blue? I think a very, very dark navy might look okay.
I love these lighter blues, but they wouldn't work. Look at the door in the next photo against the blue porch ceiling. Not quite right.
This is totally unexpected, but I love this purple door.
The gray is pretty, too.
This door might be my favorite of the lot, but it's clearly not going to happen on our house.
Interestingly, I don't see too many doors in our neighborhood with bright doors. I hope the neighbors don't think we're nuts if we go for the red or the yellow.
