Help! I need to choose a new colour for my front door. I've been looking around the internet (and my neighborhood) for a while now and it always amazes me how much the right paint colour can add to a home's curb appeal. I'd like to do something a bit different/unexpected this time. Something happy – to put a smile on our guests faces before they even come in the door.

My brick house is actually painted grey – lighter than this Miles Redd home. I love the smokey blue he paired with it though.

I love the hot pink number on the left, but not sure my husband would go for it! So pretty with the blossoms on the tree in front too. The blue door on the right is more along the lines of what I'm thinking. The colours I'm considering are:

Farrow & Ball's Stone Blue.

Farrow & Ball's Parma Gray.

Farrow & Ball's Chinese Blue, seen in this room I picked for our photo gallery of Editor's Favourite Paint Colours.

And Benjamin Moore's Deep Ocean (2058-30).


Here's how my door currently looks. I have to make a decision soon or it'll be like this all winter! I'm leaning towards F&B's Chinese Blue (bottom right square on my door).

What do you think? Please tell me your favourite in the comments below.
