Our New Front Door + Spring Exterior Door Colors

Hello friends! We enjoyed a wonderful break last week and I am so happy that it is officially spring.

Today I am sharing my front door with you. We have been working on updating the exterior of our home for a while now. We painted the whole exterior last fall, which I will show you soon, but one of my favorite new additions is our front door.

Here is a before picture with the old door and blue paint…

We looked a lot of places but ultimately ended up buying our door from Home Depot.

Here it is before I painted it.

And here it is after we painted it with a new spring wreath. The paint color is Wythe Blue by Benjamin Moore and it’s one of my all-time favorite door colors. Everywhere I have seen it in person, it has looked amazing so when we were ready to paint I knew I loved it so much I didn’t even sample, I just bought the paint. I have been so pleased with the color, in every season so far, but this color is soo perfect for spring.

I love colorful front doors. There are so many possibilities to choose from, it can be a little overwhelming to know where to start. I put together some colors that I adore for front doors, and was looking at myself, and have spring written all over them. So if you want an inexpensive, easy way to spruce up your exterior – pick a color and start painting. This door took me 2 hours to paint and cost less than $30.

Do you have a favorite front door color?

 A huge trend right now is to paint your whole interior white. White Dove is a perfect color, it’s warmer so it doesn’t seem so stark and if you are looking for more of a farm house look, this is a great way to start.

Happy Friday! I hope you all are enjoying 2017. I can’t believe we are into February! I don’t even know where January went?!

I have made some goals for this year and one of them is to use my Instagram account more. I am doing better, and as I have been on while nursing my little guy I have been amazed at how much inspiration is to be found on design and paint colors. Today I am introducing a new series that features paint inspiration solely from Instagram. Every Friday I will feature some of my favorite stories shared from others, and also give you an opportunity to share your favorite colors with me.

If you have an Instagram account and have a paint color you love, snap a picture and use the hashtag #favoritepaintcolors. I would love to feature you and see what paint colors you are crushing on.

This home is very similar to our exterior that we painted over the summer. I love the gray, black and pop of blue on the door. Oh and those flowers, how I am longing for spring and summer. We are into subzero temps and snow again today… but this photo lifts my spirits.

neutral bathroom paint color

If you have been following my blog for very long, you know Revere Pewter is a very popular color. I have loved it in every space, whether I see it in person or on the computer. It’s the perfect neutral that sometimes tends to look more beige, and other times more gray. I love it in this bathroom with the white bead board and neutral colors.
