Shut the Front Door

I've always believed that windows are the most beautiful part of a home but lately I've been drawn to front doors. It began this summer when red doors started popping up in neighborhoods and on the blog-o-sphere and now a cheerful yellow can be seen welcoming visitors into many homes.  This summer I began keeping an eye out for beautiful doors and there are plenty to swoon over while driving around town and even more to make you weak in the knees on pinterest.

Red is a nice change from black or brown yet still feels traditional - perfect for the house that needs a boost of color while maintaining the traditional architecture.

 Orange.  So modern, so bright, so unexpected...but surprisingly I'm loving this door!

 I really like this light buttery yellow.  It brightens up the porch and creates a very welcoming mood without being too bold.

A green door with gray siding? Perfection!

 Everyone knows this robins egg blue is my favorite color and I am head over heels in love with this front door.  So in love, in fact, that if it were in my neighborhood, I'd probably sit on the front steps every day.

 Dark blue feels the same as a red door to me - pretty, elegant, traditional.

I've never seen a purple door in real life, but this plum color is luxurious and beautiful.

What a sweet, bold statement - a pink door! Paired with the tree it creates the perfect scene.

So, what color would you choose to paint your front door? Are you bold enough to go with orange? Are you loving the sunshiny yellow? Would your little girl love you forever if you chose pink?  I personally love the green and the pale blue doors.

Beautiful doors. I like light yellow homes with red doors. Love that cottage look.

I've always wanted a brick red front door, but after your pictures, I think I just fell in love with yellow :-)

That was a lovely tour of color. We have a black front door {that I painted last year} and it jives with the feng shui of our door location too!

Thanks for linking to Creative Juice! {I love that robin egg color as well}
