Memorable Front Doors

Designers share their go-to shades for a memorable front door

“I feel like you can tell a lot about people by the color of their front door. I wanted people to look at our front door, and think, ‘Man, those must be really fun people that live there.’ Yellow says that this house is gonna be fun—those people are gonna be happy.”
– Ann Lacouture @annlacouture6

“I chose Benjamin Moore’s Black for the front door at Bannock Burn 1878 because it’s a soft black that marries beautifully with the granite stones of our heritage home.”

“This charming old sea captain’s home was known locally for its distinctive blue door and shutters, so when it came time to refresh them, we used Hamilton Blue from Benjamin Moore. The homeowners, building team, and we, the designers, were in agreement about honoring the design history of the home.” 
– Kylie Bodiya and Mary Maloney of Bee’s Knees Interior Design

“A bit of a chameleon, Gettysburg Gray by Benjamin Moore, depending on lighting, can read gray, green, or even beige. It’s the perfect color to add warmth to our bright white entryway.”
– Jeannine Dean of The Concrete Cottage

“We used Benjamin Moore’s Revere Pewter because it gave us a soothing, neutral color palette. The trim, done in Sherwin William’s High Reflective White, is crisp and bright so it looks good any time of day and pairs easily with other colors.”
– Erica King of Campbell King Interiors

“I love Philipsburg Blue by Benjamin Moore because its undertones are not too cool. I wanted a blue that would complement the warm neutral of our home’s existing exterior color while giving an updated feel to the front porch.”
– Hannah Matthew of Hannah Matthew Designs

Sherwin Williams Extra White is the perfect crisp white without all the blue and yellow undertones. It’s a true white that’s cool but not too stark.”
– Cheryl Meyer & Alicia Garbarino of White Cottage

“The door color of our Fidalgo Island home is Benjamin Moore Hale Navy. I love the color because…it’s blue! Navy blue to be more precise. I’m a lover of blue and white and that’s the coastal theme throughout the home.”
– Juliet Russell of the Make Mine a Spritzer

Urban Obsession by Dulux is such a versatile color that works beautifully with both farmhouse style and contemporary design and decor. It’s just perfect as a backdrop for the blue and white of the awning stripe indoor/outdoor rug.”
–Gina of Farmgate & Twine

“We used Curator Paints Strandhill on our front door and fell in love with it. It’s the most beautiful shade of light blue. We plan to use it for our kitchen island as well.” –Julia Dzafic, Lemon Stripes

“I get asked about the color of my front door all the time. The color is Egyptian Rose by Sico, a Canadian brand. I like pinks with a little yellow in them: I find it takes the bubble gum out of it. Plus, the warm undertone comes through as a feeling of hominess—exactly what you want someone to feel when they arrive at your door!”  
– Rebekah Higgs, DIY Mom

Benjamin Moore’s ‘Old World.’ “There’s something just happy about pink,” she says. “It makes me feel good.”
