Don’t you love the character of a beautifully painted front door?

Just painting your front door can turn your so-so entrance into a stunning accent. A reader recently wrote and asked if I could list a few different color selections for a front door with the color name listed. She did not mention what type of home she has (brick, white, etc),  so I have listed a few of my favorites I have seen recently:

I think this is my favorite! Ben Moore’s #2067-20 starry night blue:

I have a mirror I painted the starry night blue. I love it. . This color does have a lot of purple undertones so just be aware of that if you decide to use it.

Can you tell I love blue?  Which is your favorite? Just be sure to test your samples as if you were painting an inside room in your home!  Be sure the color works with your existing exterior colors and your hardscaping.  Look at the color in the harsh sunlight as well as at night to be sure you love before you paint!
