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?

Sea Salt is another popular neutral color that has blue and green in it. I love it paired with bright white, or darker wood.

Agreeable Gray is another very popular color for your whole home. It is very similar to Revere Pewter, but has more gray.

 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.

Dear Lillie

I hope this helps if you are looking for one continuous color to go in your home. You really can’t go wrong with any of these colors. Thanks for stopping by and happy painting!

It’s always inspiring to see what a little paint can do. The new wall color is Alabaster by Sherwin-Williams, which brightens up the space and accentuates the beauty of the wood. I love how refreshing it is. For more paint colors to go with wood, see here.

I hope you have a great weekend – doesn’t it make you happy that it’s March? I wish the weather outside was acting more like March instead of winter but I have lots of hope for this month. 3 more weeks until Spring…officially. We are sticking around celebrating birthdays, getting a few projects done around the house (details in our upstairs bathroom and hopefully sampling some paint for our laundry room) and having some friends over for dinner. Enjoy your weekend as well, whatever you may be doing. 🙂
