Building My Dream Home (#5) Grand Entry

Finally(!) our house drawings has come to an end, and while waiting for acceptance, we´ll start to tear down and build up FOR REAL. I´m so exited!!!

It`s time to make some decisions. Lets start with the grand entry. I`ve always imagined it to be black. - Classic and timeless.

 But for once, I want to be "brave" ;-) and challenge my favorite colors:

Images via Apartment Therapy and Bakker Norge

- Purple royalty -

Images via nbell and TravelPod
- Yellow sunshine -

Images via Paring Down and Stone Town Doors
- Green life - 

- Calming blue - 

It can be strong and steadfast or light and friendly... 

What color would YOU choose? 

... the concrete walls will be light grey or painted with white lime, but the door doesn`t need to be any of the colors above. If you like to take a look at the last house drawing, click here.

EVERY Tuesday you can follow "Building My Dream Home". Don`t miss out! Next Tuesday I will reveal a new and exiting subject ;-)

I think personally I would go for a colour you don't have here - namely red! I remember reading something somewhere that houses with red doors sold more quickly than those with other colours. Not that you are planning to sell your house... and not that something like that should ever influence a decision on what YOU want!

We did a light blue door with our orangey brick, and I LOVE it. It makes me so happy and people stop on the street all the time to look at it and smile. Like paint prozac...it's good!

Elsker den gule døren!!!Får jeg meg noensinne hus, så blir det en knall dør!!!elsker de fargede døren i england, knallblå, rød og flaskegrønn:)

Mariska Meijers said...

I m totally into purple at the moment! The beauty with paint is that when you get tired of it, it is changed in a jiffy :))

My Wonderworld said...

You really inspire me!!! So many great choices.... I actually think I am closer to a decision now ;-) Thank you so much for sharing your preferences!

I do adore those blue doors, so gorgeous!! But nothing can really rival a glossy black front door, in my eyes it is the height of glamour!

Leah said...

I love that last door with the tiffany blue and the big knob in the middle! I am so excited for you!!


shari @ little blue deer said...

Purple! Most definitely purple! Love this! So excited for you! XX!

My Wonderworld said...

Thank you ALL for sharing your opinions! I really appreciate your feedback. ... I even feel like I have gotten to know you a little bit more .. and that because of a color choice ... colors are a powerful tool ;-)

TLB - Thank YOU! Please enjoy! ;-)

I love the plum colour most. Pure Elegance.

Dagny Thurmann-Hoelseth said...

Carina, I'm loving the plum too! Has a very luxurious feel to it ;) But you can't go wrong with duck egg blue/chrome accessories either (I should know ;))

Ingrid said...
