My Coastal Blue Door

I  have always loved the color that I chose for my front door. I have received many compliments on the color of my door via my blog, Facebook, friends and neighbors. I even had a drive by my home recently, and a woman got out and asked me the color of my door! Since we live close to the ocean, I wanted to give the house a "beachy" feel.

The color blue is soothing to me and reminds me of the ocean and sky.  No wonder it is the number one color!

Here are my home exterior paint colors:

Paint Palette
Body and trim: Lambswool (2269) by Pratt & Lambert;
Shutters/Door: Blue Spa (2052-40) by Benjamin Moore;

Now I have to get busy with decorating the rest of my front porch.  I hope you will stop back once I make my reveal.

What color is your front door?

Thanks for stopping by!

  7. I LOVE that color! It does make it very beachy looking. Ours is black and works for our beige/yellow house.

  8. I love that color also. It's very cheery and welcoming.

  9. I love your door in blue and the oak barrel next to the door.

    We live in a beach cottage, and although we have tons of shells collected on beach walks, I don't use beachy colors. I am a primary color girl so our house has blue trim and a red door.

  10. Talk about curb appeal-love your color choice. Looking great.
