Doors…rhyme with S’mores

by kmcopeland

Ok…I apologize for the temporary hiatus in my blogging. We were vacay-ing in Dublin for the weekend and got back on Monday (still can’t believe I can now write sentences like that). I totally planned to blog then, but the Swede and I came down with a some kind of mean Irish bug that sidelined us for the past two days. Now, I’m back in action to bring you a blog post about doors (s’mores have nothing to do with it, but I am craving something sweet…sorry to disappoint).

We had a great time touring the city and over the course of the weekend I became enamored with the brightly painted doors on all of the row houses. They added so much character to the city streets!

My friends are conducting a major facelift on the exterior of their house and since it will likely be many, many years until I get to paint a front door of my own, I am choosing to live vicariously through them! Their house is a newly painted greige color (I think it’s technically mushroom), so they’re considering turquoise or purple, both of which I love. While internetting this morning, I have also decided that a coral shade should definitely be considered.

First, some evidence why each of these colors would work with greige:

Now, some fun pictures of doors painted in these pretty hues!

How about helping them about and picking your favorite? Leave your opinion in the comment section below and I’ll pass it along. Have a happy Wednesday!

  1. My favorite is the distressed columbia blue door. However the coral door is in the running especially paired with some bright colored pots on the porch.

  2. Funny you should mention coral because I mentally added that color to the list of potentials. I kid you not. I hadn’t even read this post yet. And yes you are correct, technically it is “mushroom.” This weekend I am going to put up some samples and will take pics to send your way for more insight.
