Front Door Debate!

We are in the process of a few facelift projects this Summer and I am finally feeling like it's almost done! You know the old saying twice as long and twice the cost! The outdoor bar is one day away from being complete and thank goodness since the Summer if half way over.  Kitchen is a wall paint away from completion and I chose BJM Dove Wing to finish up that job. Butlers pantry is getting tiled and painted this week. Now after all the chaos in my home for half the Summer my husband looked at me and said, "We should repaint the Exterior doors".  Okay, but at this point my brain is a bit fried from design work.  So what paint color to choose? I have a few that I love and since we have four exterior doors I want it to be perfect. What would you choose?  I would love to hear your thoughts and see what catches everyone's eye!
I also want to say a special thanks to Perfect Linens! They sent me the sent me a wonderful sheet set. Not only does it look very pretty, it is very soft to the touch.  These sheets are making for a great nights sleep!
I chose Second Skin sheeting but you can find an array of wonderful choices right HERE!


Isn't the embroidery wonderful?

Now onto the front door!

Present day door in a deep red.


Doors I have a crush on. Which do you love?













Hmmm I see a pattern here , do you?

Happy Monday everyone!

  1. We went with a white house, black doors;) and I'm still on the look out for the perfect door knocks. These are ALL really nice Karolyn and I know whatever you pick will look great! Glad to hear you are making house progress. Patience is important when starting ANYTHING especially if you are DIY folks.

    Enjoy your Monday!

  2. All your selections are nice. And when we (someday) get around to painting our front door we are going with a super high ultra gloss black.

  3. I love the grey! Maybe just a tad darker than the mortar of your stone? Can't wait to see all your projects!

  4. My favorite is the black door with the glass. Maybe it's because of the planters and the concrete lions and spheres, but love it! ~ Jan

  5. So many exciting projects! How fun, cannot wait to see each and every one. OK I am and always have been a big sucker for a glossy black door...tres chic!
    But the pale green/gray door is mighty gorgeous too and I could see it done in high gloss. So those are my two picks, but to me a black door will always reign supreme as the picture of timeless elegance that makes a statement:)

  6. I don't think you can ever go wrong with a black door - the gray is beautiful, but we just painted our Beaufort house door black and love it with the white wood and black shutters. Can't wait to see all of your new spaces - know they are fabulous!!

  7. Oh goodness, I am a fan of gray and black. Can I pick two:) In our previous home we had a dark gray, in our new home we are putting in a black iron door. So I believe that either will be lovely.
    I cannot wait to see your finished projects!

  9. I would do the grey (or the hunter green) as you already have those beautiful black shutters. (Also, I am a big fan of "Dove Wing by the way!)
    Hope you are having a wonderful summer aside from your home-improvement projects!
    All best,
    Phyllis

  10. Hi Karolyn! I'm so happy for you that the big project is almost done. You still have the rest of summer to enjoy that outdoor space--how fun! We are just back from 2 weeks away and I'm having fun catching up with my blog friends today. Happy summer!
    xx, Heather

  12. All beautiful! A hard decision for sure! I love your front door as it is! If I was to choose something else I guess it would have to be the pale grey….but I've always wanted a black door! Go figure…too many beautiful choices! By the way….those sheets! LOVE them!

  13. We love a pale gray door but it shows a lot of dirt so we would opt for a darker shade of gray - especially paired with white clapboard! We know you'll make the perfect choice, Karolyn. Hope your summer is going well!
