Say hello to colorful front doors! Front doors are like first impressions, you only have one chance to make a bold statement! A colorful door is one of the easiest and most affordable ways to add instant curb appeal. It adds another layer of personality and helps make your home unique. When selecting your color, it’s important to pick a shade that will complement your home’s existing style and features. Remember to test, test, test! Paint a few samples on your front door and observe over the course of a day to see which shade speaks to you.
Gray is a classic, traditional color representing knowledge and authority. This perfect neutral has a stabilizing effect on other colors, downplaying rich bold hues and enlightening softer tones. You simply can’t go wrong with a gray front door! One of the most common questions we are asked is “What color is the front door from Project Newport Heights?” so we reached out to our friends at Graystone Custom Builders and they let us know it was painted in Galveston Gray by Benjamin Moore.
Ever since Pantone put pink on our radar, we can’t get enough of it! It’s one of the hardest shades to work into a design project because of its girlish charm, but we know not all men are opposed. Bright shades of pink can make us feel young and vibrant while blush tones create a gentle and calming mood. If you’re ready to make a statement and stand out on your block, this is the color for you.
Blue is one of our favorite colors – it’s a nod to our coastal surroundings and plays off the natural elements of the sea and sky. It is strongly associated with tranquility and calmness, suggesting a serene retreat behind closed doors.
Green is the go-to shade to bring your landscape to life. The color green has great healing power and it is the most restful color for the eyes. It’s a refreshing color with a natural balance of cool and warm undertones making it easy to pair with a variety of different home styles.
Yellow is a cheerful way to welcome guests into your home. Representing the sun, a bright shade of yellow can bring happiness, warmth and energy to your front door. This color is best suited for exteriors with neutral tones like whites, grays, and shades of brown.
Orange is a great color to complement modern or contemporary homes (think Palm Springs). It’s a vibrant, rich color that screams for attention and gives your home a lively focal point. A bright shade of orange can give a sense of playfulness to a neutral home.
