Which Door?

Via
Pretty doors beckon you to enter.

Last week was busy and crazy at our house. My little man was injured on the playground and required stitches. It's on the chin so it's been hard for him to even eat. He's doing better today. In addition to taking care of him, I cleaned out 3 closets and reorganized my pantry.  Guess I was saving it for now.

Waiting to see which door was going to open. Now I can dream about my new front door. I've always wanted a vivid color but couldn't due to HOA restrictions.  Maybe we can at our next place. 
Time for a little "Dream with B" post. Here's a collection of some favorites.  All of these can be found on my Pinterest door board.  Follow me on Pinterest and I'll follow you back!

The blues.




Two of my favorite blogging friends have blue doors. I've always loved Sonya's turquoise door. You can check out her tutorial here.
 And Ann has a navy blue one. It is stunning! The perfect shade for an exterior.  You can read about it here.




The greens.




The yellows.


The reds and pinks.






And in honor of Valentine's.

I love bright doors as well. My favs are the turquoise and the intense reddish orange. Gorgeous!

I think it really depends on the color of the house... but just from the pics....the navy door looked stunning...and those soft greens were lovely!

Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving a nice comment about my new dining room! I'm excited! :0)

Oh, what fun! I loved seeing all these doors. Thanks so much, Tammy, for featuring my front door! I'm still loving it but now you're making me think how fun another color would be!

Andrea said...

Before selling our home last spring, we freshened the door up with a greenish colour and it looked soooo much better! What a difference a beautiful door can make =)

Heather said...

So sorry to hear about your little boy! Hope his chin is feeling better soon!

I have a red door, but I am loving the turquoise ones!

Laura at Ms. Smartie Pants said...

This post is for me! I adore doors! Whenever we go on vacation all I do is take pictures of doors. I hope you get the door of your choice at your next place, mine is currently navy but thinking about going red, I think it would look nice with the gray brick.

I am so sorry about your little one, hopefully he is feeling better soon. I had stitches three different times on my chin. :)
Love these doors and as soon as it warms up that is on my list of to-do's, I really want a blue door.

Well the door color has to fit the house of course, but for some reason you just seem like you should have a blue door~so if its cottagey paint it soft blue and if its formal and grand paint it dark dark navy!!

Suzanne said...

Love the red heart door! I want it.

Pamela Bates of Mercantile Muse said...

i've wanted to paint front door for quite awhile. but couldn't decide on new color. i'm leaning towards black or a slate gray. i LOVE that one from beyond the screen door!!! sorry your little one had to get stitches :(

Julie Harward said...

I can't wait to see what you choose! I have a red one and just love it. I love the red one here with the heart glass..awesome! :D

Sorry about your little guy...I hope he heals up soon.

These doors are fabulous, very eye catching! I love them all. I can't wait to see you work your magic on the new house!

Oh my, I am in love with that orange door! I like bright colors, so all those turquoise, orange, red, green, and bright blue, any of those get my vote!!

Faye Henry said...

Hi Tammy.. Such a fun post...
I love the valentine door.. Of course, I am so old fashioned.. grin..
I have wanted our double doors painted black for 2 years now..
By the time it happens I will need to choose another color...
Blessings..

Marla and Steve said...

Love the Navy and the softer yellow door. They are all beautiful.

Cindy said...

Very cool! I love all of them, but especially the red ones. That is one place the red belongs, I think.
Great images, all of them!
Hugs, Cindy

I would go with the yellow door (although the turquoise and the pale blue are tough competitors!). Yellow is sunny, happy, optimistic and it looks great on a dull grey winter day:)

Kathysue said...

Loving the bright Emerald green door. Actually love them all, I have an affinity for doors and gates. I too, Have a Pinterest board dedicated to doors and gates, Kathysue

Gina said...

You have made me want to run out & paint my front door in the snow! lol

raggygirlvintage said...

Gorgeous collection Tammy, guess you'll know when you see your new house what color the door is meant to be, at least you'll have lots of inspiration to choose from. That turquoise door is stunning! Hope your littley is doing better, poor guy!

Thanks for a lovely collection of doors -- I've become a follower on Pinterest because your boards contain so much lovely inspiration.

As a mother of 3 grown sons, there seemed to be lots of bumps & scary stitches but we all pulled through. ;-)

So many pretty doors...Hard to even pick a favorite. The front door is so important because it's often the first impression someone has. I pinned that bright pink one...I love it on white brick....but doubt I'll ever really have a pink front door.

Sarah said...

I love a painted door! Ours is a dark forest green. Thanks for sharing all these images. Doors are a favorite architectural detail for me. ~ Sarah

Shanon at Vintage Sparkle Chic said...

I love the chippy and blue door the best! I will be so fun to see if you are able to paint the front door once you move!

I love a painted door. And that you can change the color! But I am surprised how many natural wood doors I am seeing crop up here and there. Pretty but not as bright and cheery.

I'm sorry bout the stitches incident, but wow you were very productive! There are so many great doors but I'm in love with that navy blue one!!

The turquoise door, no wait, the heart door, no wait.... :)

Will keep you and yours in our prayers!I love the heart doors!

Sorry about your baby's stitches, shoot it seems every boy has a scar on his chin...I think he would look more odd with out one. I love the bright doors, hope you can have one when you move!

Daffodil Hill said...

OH, I love them all! Seriously, how do you even choose? My door is actually metal, but stained to look like wood. I keep threatening to paint it some sort of shocking color. Thanks for the inspiration:-) xo

Calypso In The Country said...

Love the navy blue and the red! (Then why is my door black?...)Beautiful pics!

Zane Wooder said...

I can't really say which door is the nicest because I love them all. A nice door really makes a house shine.
