a great friend of mine called/harassed me about helping her with a paint color for her front door (my friends think its impossible to get paint colors out of me....i don't know why)!!  so i made sure to send plenty to her!!  she lives in a painted white brick house w/ gray shutters so for the front door she wanted some "spunk" in her life.  the pics above were my inspiration.  i personally am dying to do a blue door on my painted white brick house but my husband isn't sold....one day he may just arrive home and "magically" the door color has changed :)
all colors are Ben Moore:
silver mink 1586
wedgewood gray HC-146
gray wisp 1570
vale mist 1495
waynesboro taupe 1544
misted fern 482
buckingham gardens 545
bunker hill green 566
hawthorne yellow HC-4

Love the Pop these colorful doors bring to the exteriors of these houses!

When we built our home, a colonial reproduction, we painted the clapboards a soft gray and the front door a shade of Bermuda turquoise. That was not the exact color, because Ben Moore didn't carry it back then.
When doing research on the era of our home, we were told that homeowners could not affair pigment for their whole house, so they would go very bold for the doors.
Just a little factoid that stays in my brain in order to not let important things in! ;)

My husband generally couldn't give a rip what I do in the house (which is great!), but the few times he doubts I find it works best to just do it. He always likes the result. :-)

Love the idea of a painted idea, I personally like the "milky" or toned down colors as opposed to anything super bright but its more about getting the color just right.

We painted our back door Ben Moore St Lucia Teal. Love the pop of color!

We live in a white brick cape-style home, with black shutters and a slate roof. The previous owner painted the door a bright blue that makes me think of Mykonos, or another Greek seaside town. It's beginning to chip, and although people compliment the color all of the time, I can't decide whether to change it or stick with what we have. These are some wonderful inspirations!

I wanted to paint our door black. My husband was against it. He was, however, on board with blue. -Go figure? Here's the end result...http://alittlehappy.blogspot.com/2011/07/my-painted-door.html

I painted mine an awesome BM shade of CORAL....it looks FAB + my hub didn't flip when he came home + the door was "hot pink" - he said in his humble opinion! I say go for the best POP of color your heart desires!

I recognize a few of these images...I'm pretty sure I have them in a binder somewhere. I LOVE painted white brick...a blue door would be amazing! Where can I find photos of the exterior of your house on your blog?

Nothing better than pretty front doors. That last pic inspired me to paint my front door yellow but it just doesn't look that great. i'm thinking of black, now. Every year it's a new color - ha!

The first image is perfect inspiration for a fence in addition to the front door. Thanks for the image!

The Blueprint magazine cover came out when we bought our first house. I loved it so much we painted it to match!
