My husband and I have been doing a little bit of house hunting lately and one of the first things that I notice when we see a potential house is the front door. It’s amazing to me how something this simple can either make a home look warm and inviting, or trashy and run down. I have compiled a few fun and inviting doors that give the whole home a personality. There are so many fun colors out there, why not add your personality to your front door? Here are a few of my favorites, complete with paint colors.

*Submitted by Catherine. If you are looking for that perfect gray/taupey color, Tony Taupe could be your answer. Don’t you love how it goes so well with the rocks in her fireplace? The perfect choice and a great neutral. Thanks so much for your submission, Catherine!

Hello my favorite paint color readers! I hope you are all having a wonderful summer. We have been having a great time with family and were able to visit my brothers and sisters down in Utah, and were also able to spend time with my husband’s family at his reunion. While we were down there I was able to go in a few model homes just for some inspiration and of course to see what paint colors they chose.
This home was beautiful, very simple but the décor made a big statement against the neutral walls. The whole house was painted one color: Dorian Gray by Sherwin Williams and all the white trim was painted Extra White by Sherwin-Williams. Although the whole house was the same color, each room was unique and had it’s own “color” through the different accessories used. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!
Here is a source list of some of the items used throughout the home, built by Cadence Homes. Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!
