Front Door Dilemma
Our plum colored front door has served our home well for over 5 years. Actually, I can’t take credit for the color choice. The previous owner chose the color, but luckily she and I had similar taste. I know I told you that we used to live across the street from our current house. But, did I ever tell you that we both painted our powder rooms at the same time? We saw each other on Monday and were shocked to learn that not only had we both been painting our powder rooms over the weekend, but that we had chosen the same color!
Time has passed, and I’m yearning for a brighter and cheerier front door. A door that makes people rubber neck!
This year, I’ve been obsessed by colorful front doors. Last year I wrote an entire post on colorful front doors. It’s true, when I pass a house with a colorful front door I get a little whiplash. I think it’s time that I tame this obsession and repaint our front door. Don’t you think?!
I have a few colors in mind, but I’m curious what your thoughts are. So, I put together a little paint preview of my front door so you can help me decide ;-).
Here is the current color (plum):

Def the Lemon!!
I love the lemon! It’s a warm and happy color worthy of “rubber neckers” and “welcome homes”.
The plum-colored front door seems perfect for your home, Brittany! Great survey & post …
Love this project, since I’ve been contemplating my own front and back doors for a while. That back door is getting replaced, and when it does I want a big bright color on there. I was leaning between a dark yellow or lime green myself! Can’t wait to see how yours turns out.
I like chartreuse. Darn you Pretty Handy girl. I had been set on stripping and staining my wood door and stenciling over it in black. Now I am thinking or something BRIGHTER. Why do you plant these ideas in my head?
Kimberly, you should definitely do what you were thinking! That sounds equally unique and rubber-neck worthy! Let it be your expression of you.
I voted for chartreuse. Fun!! Can’t wait to see what you pick. For the record, I think the plum was a neat choice too but you’re right, it doesn’t necessarily “pop” . 🙂
I voted aqua. But I love aqua and paint everything that color so I’m biased!
Lemon really pops and isn’t as common as red.
I hate to be so traditional, but I voted red! I liked the way it popped. Liked the yellow and aqua, too.
I’m partial to the aqua plus when the copper roof gets it’s wonderful patina, it will probably blend well.
I really like the cobalt. It’s definitely an eye catching colour and contrasts nicely with the copper awning and all the lush green in your yard. 🙂
Brittany – have you seen my front door?
Can you guess what color I voted for? I’m totally with you on a fun colored front door!
