32 Colorful Doors to Adore

32 Colorful Doors

Hello Pretty Handy readers! I’m Colleen from Just Paint It! Blog and today I have a collection of 32 gorgeous colorful doors to inspire your next curb appeal project. With warmer temps here, most of us are spending more time outside, sprucing up our yards and outdoor spaces. One simple way to make a big impact is to paint the front door (and if you have to strip it first, check out this great tutorial for stripping paint with video tutorial.)

While I don’t see this done too much here in California, Brittany found most of these bright and cheery portals in a local neighborhood in Raleigh! Although a few doors are from her visit to the U.K and Scotland. See if you can guess which ones!

A Sherwin Williams color deck was used to approximate the paint colors of these doors. Keep in mind when painting your own, it may require two or more coats to get some of the rich tones in this collection. It’s always wise to paint a sample board to hold up to your door so you can see how the natural lighting affects that particular hue.

Let’s start out with some sunny yellows.


Lantern Yellow SW6687


Bee SW6683


This next door is close to Chartreuse, a blend between yellow and green.


Chartreuse SW0073

Moving towards a brighter green we have “Outrageous Green”. Isn’t it stunning next to the white columns and millwork?



If bright greens are a little too, well, bright, add some blues to cool them down.


Nifty Turquoise SW6941


Nautilus SW6780


Open Seas SW6500


Ebbtide SW6493


Cloudless SW6786


Aqua Tint SW6939


Blue Peacock SW0064

Make a statement with a blue front door by taking the green hues out completely.


Sapphire SW6963


Honorable Blue SW6811


Frank Blue SW6967


Blue Chip SW6959


Blue Chip SW6959



Blue Blood SW6965


Between Danube and Dignity 6803-6804

If those blues are a little too bold, lighten them up for a refreshing look.


Swimming SW6764


Indulgent SW6969


Lobelia SW6809


Atmospheric SW6505

If you’re craving even more color, go ahead and paint the trim too!


Slick Blue SW6949

Think purple is too wild of an idea for a front door? Think again.
As a matter of fact, this first lovely pair belongs to none other than Pretty Handy Girl herself!

Shades of red offer a classic look, yet still provide individuality.


Wild Currant SW7583


Heart Throb SW6866


Fine Wine SW6307

This copper entry offers the warmth of wood against the red brick facade.

There you have it – 32 colorful doors! Such a great way to transform the look of the front of your house, with very minimal effort.

It’s pretty hard for me a favorite to choose but I’m partial to the blues. What’s your favorite color of the collection? Any plans to paint your front door this summer? What color do you have planned?

    I have an aluminum front screen door on my mobile home that has the paint peeling off. How do I remove what’s left? I would like repaint it, so how do I clean it before painting and what typ of paint do I use?

    These are amazing. The blues are hard to beat, but sometimes it’s the total combo with the color of the house and the trim that really makes the door pop. I thought the green against the white trim was pretty beautiful, also the yellow door to the grey house. Lovely!

    I love these! We were in Paris in April and I took many, many photos of doors. They are so unique over there, and I never got tired of looking at them. Thanks to your inspiration here, I think it might be time to paint our front door on our new home (as soon as we move in LOL).
