A couple of days ago, I posed the question on the A2D Facebook page, “Would you ever paint all of your interior doors a color other than black or white…or stained wood?”
And of course, I’m not just talking about the inside of your front door, or a special door like a screen door you’re using on a pantry. I’m talking about all of your interior doors.
Black interior doors have long been a favorite of mine ever since I painted John & Alice’s doors black a little over three years ago.
I’ve been planning on painting all of the interior doors in the house black for quite some time now. I just love how classy black doors look.
But lately, I’ve been considering branching out a bit with a daring color rather than black or the ubiquitous white.
Of course, those doors aren’t painted. They’re covered in leather and have a gorgeous nailhead trim. And I would imagine they cost a fortune.
I’ll opt for paint 🙂 , but seeing that picture got me thinking about the possibility of using an actual color on my interior doors. And I love green. It tends to make an appearance in every room of mine, so it would be the perfect color for my doors.
Then just the other day, I saw the before and after photos of this hallway with green doors from Peppermint Bliss.
So I think I’m gonna go for it. Green interior doors. The worst that can happen is I end up hating it, and have to repaint the doors. But at least I will have tried something new (for me)! And it’s only paint.
What do you think? Could you do it? And if so, what color would you choose? To me, that’s the hardest part — finding a color that blends beautifully with every room in your home, or every room off the hallway. Now I just have to find the perfect green that fits that bill for my home.
Addicted 2 Decorating is where I share my DIY and decorating journey as I remodel and decorate the 1948 fixer upper that my husband, Matt, and I bought in 2013. Matt has M.S. and is unable to do physical work, so I do the majority of the work on the house by myself. You can learn more about me here.
