Yellow Door

Why Don't You

This photo is a few months old now. The pink and black shelves have been styled and restyled a few times (sometimes by me, but mostly by Evie) and the Gossip Girl sconces have been put up (post to come!). I also changed out the door knob. I’m hoping this week I’ll get to adding moulding to the door and then painting it. I’m sort of leaning toward yellow, but the jury’s still out.

I picked up a quart today of this pretty color by Glidden called Spicy Banana Pepper. It’s a happy and bright yellow with a hint of green – not quite chartreuse.

Here are some inspiration photos. I like how the yellow pops in a room with lots of white, of which I have an abundance in my loft:

  1. These doors look amazing and I bet the combination of the pinky-coral shelves and greeny-yellow would look great! I've been considering painting my front door charcoal grey with light grey walls but that seems rather boring compared to this. :)

  2. I recently told my husband that I wanted to paint our really old, ugly door yellow and he agreed. I haven't gotten the guts to do it yet, but this may help.

  3. I like the yellow too, like the pic from Elle where other bright colors are used too, last pic is great – the bedroom is really inviting

  4. Love that yellow! Can't wait to see the after and your sconces! I am needing to paint the outside of my front door. Still trying to pick the perfect color. Maybe now I'll be a little more ballsy!!!

  5. Great idea! I see from your inspiration pics that all but one of the yellow doors has mouldings on it. Would you consider dressing it up a bit to add textural interest?

  6. I love the brighter yellow doors. If you paint your door yellow PLEASE get new hardware instead of that brassy gold doorknob. Black/dark metal or brushed silver IMO.

  7. Cannot wait to see your yellow door. Yellow is my favourite colour, and occasionally I'm tempted to lacquer various surfaces with it. I have a Platner chair with bright yellow cushions on order so that will have do do me for the meantime, but I would love a door somewhere.

  8. what a HAPPY color! as soon as i get out of this rental house, i swear i would love to paint my front door a pretty yellow. i SO love every picture you posted. happy, happy.

  9. WOW! Love all the inspiration. I'm definitely feeling inspired! We painted one wall in our dining room a very similar color. We loved how it turned out. Thinking about painting our "new" claw foot tub the same color.

  10. Love this!
    I am seriously toying with the idea of painting all the doors in the house we'll build – keeping the wall colours neutral and then doing a dark navy or charcoal on the doors.
    I really want to take the old wooden panelled doors from the old farmhouse and reuse them in our new one… This is totally selling me on the idea!

  11. Your post have the information that is helpful and very informative. I would like you to keep up the good work.You know how to make your post understandable for most of the people.Thumbs up and Thanks.

  12. Love the yellow door idea. Yellow is my happy color – in fact I posted about that on Monday and used that second image.

    Can't wait to see the finished product!

  13. This is amazing! First of all, I love yellow so I'm already obsessed with this door, but more importantly, the whole project is such a great idea! I love how simple, but polished it looks.
