Front door decided..

Another decision! We have really been going round the houses…so to speak! when it comes to the front door colour, more so than style. We are pretty clear on that! The “tenby solid” is the way to go for us as we feel it is in keeping with the style of the house

We were toying with the idea of having some glass in the door however there will be glass on either side and so solid should look gooooddd….

Colour on the other hand….not so easy! We managed to narrow it down to the teal/blue group but there are SO many variations! We love the teal…


This one in particular is gorgeous! It is a beautiful colour, however it looks so good against the white render and having looked at a darker colour, namely the peacock blue and against an anthracite grey frame, the peacock blue pops a bit more don’t you think? And as we have bricks too and not render I think peacock blue will be just right. Plus hello “peacock blue” its a sign!

And I came across this beauty on etsy, the last one and I’ve scrawled all over the Internet for peacock door knockers and couldn’t find one that I liked. What do you think?

I figured once it arrives we can basically match up other brass ironmongery for the door and I’d really like to carry this through with the internal door knobs and the kitchen handles…


Also 100% going with a door number and knocker, together with a central door knob and letterbox…similar to this door…

And so another decision made! It is quite good as well, as the glass installer can order the door at the same time from Solidor which makes it a little easier too!

What colours do you like? Has anyone gone crazy with their door colour?
