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.

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

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.

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?

  1. 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).

  2. 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!

  3. What an inspiration. I am really thinking of a new paint color for my door. This came at the perfect time!
