Colorful Doors Around the World

A few years ago when I was buying a new home, one of the things on my “must-have” list was a colorful door.  You might think that’s a bit strange, I know my realtor kind of chuckle at it, but I had always wanted a home with a red door or at least something bright.

Well, I did find my 1958 ranch style home with a burgundy door already on it.  I loved it from the moment I walked up the pathway.  I think that’s why doors can be so important to the curb appeal of your home.  It’s the first impression of your home, it’s the welcoming point for your guest and it can also give a glimpse of the family inside.

So, I’ve gone through my Pinterest board on Colorful Doors and selected some of my favorites to share with you. 

Let’s start off with this red door with matching red shingles.  I love the added detail of the roundness of the window and upper door.

Colorful architecture in my homeland of Cuba is very popular.  It’s part of the Caribbean life style and the Spanish architecture throughout the island.  I’ve shared before on the wonderful architecture and you can view that here

Milan, Italy is known for it’s couture fashion, but this yellow door really stands out with the painted heart.  How whimsical and unexpected, I think an artist must live there.

The height on this door in Estonia really makes all the geometric shapes pop.

Now this homeowner decided to match his door color to the beautifully blooming Bougainvillea. They’ve matched  the magenta color almost perfectly in this Mediterranean home.

Being an Ovarian Cancer survivor, Teal is one of my favorite colors.  It’s also a very popular color in the beautiful town of Santa Fe, New Mexico.  The Southwest adobe style homes often have this detail and this home is an exquisite example.

While looking through my board, I noticed  a pattern of many yellow doors.  I hadn’t noticed it before, but I soon realized that yellow is a popular door color throughout the world.  This one with the climbing rose bush is in Ireland.

Now, you’re probably wondering why I included this grey door in Paris.  Well, yes, grey is not a very bright color, but the surrounding plaster archway and the mint color are so beautiful and simply draw you in.  The soft, subtle grey becomes pronounced and fitting to the grand home.
