A front door should set the tone for the rest of your home before you walk in the door! Whether you choose to keep your existing door and add a pop of color, or change it out for a statement door, we have you covered. We are sharing a few of our favorite doors from our past remodels for a little exterior inspiration!
For the Modern French Remodel project, we chose a beautiful pivot door to really set the tone for the modern design elements also found within the home. In addition to replacing the original green door, we widened the opening to accommodate for this new statement of a front door. We love that you can see the French reclaimed limestone floors in the Foyer and the glow of a modern crystal chandelier as soon as you walk up the porch.
This completely original home from 1955 had a pop of color on everything but the front door ~ the whole house was turquoise! We fell in love with the charm of this old home but wanted to give it a modern update while keeping a little bit of color to honor the original home. This rich hunter green was the perfect choice to compliment the now white home with black trim!
Definitely one of our most transformational projects to date.
We loved this color so much, we brought it on the inside of the home too! Typically we paint the inside of the front door a semi gloss white, but not this time. This is our favorite shade of blue. We jokingly refer to it as "Beckmann Blue" because we want to use it in every project, and would if we could! This blue is soft and makes for such a calming and inviting space, yet also adds a nice pop next to white walls. This is the perfect example of what the right choice of paint can do for a home, and how you can make something old look new again!
One of our first front door transformations was at our McLellan project. This entryway was dark, closed off, and very uninviting, so we set out to make it the opposite! The gate was the first thing to go, followed by painting the exterior of the home the perfect shade of white to brighten everything up. We kept the red brick border for contrast and chose a true navy blue for a pop of color on the original double doors. It completely transformed before our eyes, and became a very inviting entryway!
We hope this gives you inspiration for any upcoming projects! Don't be afraid of a little color in a world full of neutrals, it will only make your neutrals more beautiful. We are sure the pop of color will put a smile on your face every time you see it, it does for us!
