Yellow Doors…I heart you!

I’m in luck!

The house I’ll be moving into needs a paint job.

Does that sound strange?

You see, every other fixer I’ve ever purchased hasn’t needed a paint job. Can you believe that?

…and to top it off, one of them was pink!

(but we lived in Hawaii and there were only a few colors to choose from for that particular neighborhood).

Anyways, I know it’s easier to dream about colored exteriors, than to actually be scraping paint for days, but I’m excited about my color choices.

I’m pretty sure I’m going to go with a medium gray-brown with white or cream trim and a yellow door.

Even though I’m over the yellow and grey for interiors (I think I over-did it in my house for the past couple years),

I can’t help but love it for the outside!






I had to throw in a couple blue ones too. If I lived near the sea, I would be sure to paint the house blue.

…but I don’t, so gray it will be.

Aren’t those colors beautiful?

I can’t wait to start scraping!

  1. OOOH I love the pop of yellow! Not to be to cheesy but I think it suits you and your sunny personality 😉

  2. LOVE the sunny look of those sweet yellow doors. My kids’ nurseries were yellow when they were babies. It always looked like the sun was shining in there- xo Diana

  3. I’m totally painting my front door “Pencil Yellow”. I’m in love with that colour and I can’t wait to do it!!!!

  4. What GREAT colors – and yes, I LOVE your yellow door idea! I’ve never seen it before and it looks fantastic! Have fun!

  5. Oh my goodness — yellow doors are so perfect! I can’t wait to see it in all it’s glory!!! XO, Aimee
