June 22, 2022 4 min read

A fresh lick of paint on your front door is a quick and simple way to revive your home's whole exterior. A carefully selected front door colour will draw the eye of any onlookers and have you receiving compliments all year round. Here are a few on-trend ideas to inspire and excite you into painting your front door this summer.

Drawing inspiration from nature

When choosing your front door colour why not head outside and get inspired by the foliage around your home to create a front door that is harmonious with your landscape. Humans have an innate attraction to nature, so it’s no wonder we are seeing nature inspired colours trending right now. The nature around your house can be the perfect inspiration. Drawing inspiration from nature with colours such as sage and leafy greens as well as sky blues creates a grounded and calm entrance for your home that will sit perfectly in your home’s landscape.

Colour: Curragh Green (Door)

Curragh Green is another popular nature inspired hue, inspired by the extended flat open plains of the curragh of Kildare. The earth pigments used to create this colour will blend beautifully into any landscape. We can see this colour in foliage around all our homes much like the shrubbery featured above.


Your front door is the perfect opportunity to do something different and make a statement by adding a pop of colour to your home. While some people may find bright colours slightly daunting, your front door is the perfect opportunity to experiment as it is a feature that can be changed as often as you like. Sunny colours like Georgian Gold, Ruby Vermillion and Merrion Blue make the perfect bold statement that will not go unnoticed.

If you want to make a statement but are hesitant about going quite so bright, you could try a slightly deeper tone of the colour you like. Take a look at the below examples for some inspiration on finding your favourite bright colour's deeper counterpart.

As you can see below, a deeper alternative to Georgian Gold is French Mustard. French Mustard will still give your front door that cheerful, sunny look but without the vibrancy of a brighter shade like Georgian Gold.

Elegant and Contemporary

A black front door is a classic, while we are seeing black being chosen more and more now, it is not confined to any trend. It is a timeless colour and will always feel classy and elegant. Black can be a good choice as it pairs well with a lot of popular exterior shades such as whites, grey, earthy beiges, and greens.

Greys are still a popular and contemporary choice of colour for any part of your home and your front door is no exception. You can’t go wrong with grey, with a never-ending choice from dark to light and a variety of undertones there is sure to be a grey to suit you and your home.
