pretty doors {inspiration!}

November 2nd | inspiration, photography

If you’ve ever been to the UK then you’ve probably noticed all the pretty doors. I’ve been spying so many inspiring doorways, I decided to start snapping pics of my favorites.

Blue with a white number 5. Perfect.

Wood slates with iron trim. Love.

A green door with red geraniums makes a lovely combination.

Bright yellow might be my favorite.

Orange and white trim. Happy.

All white is nice and tidy.

Chippy and worn. I love texture.

Blue on blue. Calming.

Hot pink makes a statement.

Traditional red.

Old wood. Historical.

Mint green on a sloped street.

And this shell mosaic is a few hundred years old. The yellow door finishes it off perfectly.

If you were going to paint your door, what color would you choose?

    I want to paint my front door either red or bright apple green. If you look on the internet, there are some articles about what different colors of doors communicate–like welcome or friendship, etc.
