The colorful door

The colorful door

I am like many others and I can’t help but drive slowly past a pretty home. Especially if they have a fun door color and there are lots of pretty one’s in Charleston. If you follow me on instagram you know that I share a lot of pretty Charleston homes and especially pretty doors.

Here are a few that have caught my eye.

Aren’t they pretty? I’ve put together my go to colors and beautiful inspirational doors I’ve found.

Red doors are beautiful especially lacquered. I love Sherwin Williams Cherry Tomato

In Charleston we have a deep green color, it’s Historic Charleston Green by Duron. The history of how the color comes from the Civil War.

Haint Blue is also a beautiful color. Generally used on ceilings in Charleston it also makes for a beautiful door color.

And, I have yet to paint a door pink or lilac but if that opportunity would present itself I would go choose Rosebud for Sherwin Williams and for pink Diminutive Pink by Sherwin Williams.

So, why not go bold with your front door? I want to go bold, now I just need to choose a color! Do y’all have a bold door? Do tell!

I love helping people successfully find and perfect their dream homes in Charleston. This is why I'm dedicated to home selling, buying, decorating, designing and remodeling.

    I want to change our door color so badly. And I’ve pinned that pink front door a long time ago and still adore it.
