Setting the Tone: 10 Front Door Colours

Door Colour: Oregano 2147-10 (Benjamin Moore)

     The front door may seem a small detail when looking at the exterior of your house, but it is more important then you think. It greets your guests before they step into your home and sets the tone on what to expect once inside. You want it to be a reflection of yourself, as well as compliment the rest of your houses exterior. It can be a tricky task trying to find the right balance of personality and functionality, so here are 10 of my favourite Benjamin Moore colours that look great on front doors:

Yellow Marigold 2155-30, Navajo Red 2171-10, Gentleman's Gray 2062-20, 
Newburyport Blue HC-155, Iron Mountain 2134-30, Oregano 2147-10, 
Plum Royale 2070-20, Caliente AF-290, Polar Jade CC-754, Black Bean Soup 2130-10

              *All these colours are available in paint chips at any Benjamin Moore store

   Benjamin Moore has a great tool on their website called the Personal Colour Viewer. It allows you to pick a sample home and play around with different colours. The image used at the top of this post is an example of what the Personal Colour Viewer can do. Keep in mind that colours will appear slightly different on a computer screen then in real life. Colour samples (test pots) are always the best way to go for real colour representation.

What colour is your front door? How does it represent you?
