12 An Ode to Yellow Doors...










Please forgive me for my lack of posts lately. I have encountered a little shake up in my life this week that has left me quite sad. Unfortunately, this is going to impact my world for a while. I promise not to turn this blog into a sad rambling of emotions, but please bear with me while I adjust. The furniture and painting projects will have to be put on hold for now, but at least this gives me more time for finding great inspiration...


On a happier note, Coral of 8 South left a post with a link to this post on Remodelista which led me to all kinds of wonderful yellow doors on Flickr, including an entire group devoted to them. Please see my Flickr Fav's for credits for these great pics...
Side Note: If I were to rename this blog or open a new store I would call it The Yellow Door. See this pic. Apparently The Yellow Door is a jewelry and gift store in Brooklyn...fantastic choice of name.

I love the yellow doors! And actually, here's a challenge: I am moving into a new house in a few weeks and want to paint it red. I also want a yellow door. Can these colors coexist without it becoming too "McDonaldsy"? Perhaps you or one of your readers has some ideas of shade combinations that may work. Thanks!

This is a wonderful post- such great doors! Never met you of course- but I hope you won't be sad too long- your blog is a beautiful inspiration, but you come first! :)

I so wish I had a door I could paint because I would totally paint it yellow. I hope all will be okay soon. Take care.

Hey Thanks!
I'm loving the yellow doors - but I don't think they would look so good with my orangey brick house. I need contrast with mint or aqua maybe? This is why my new door is still primer white.
Hope all is ok with you.

I just painted my door yellow! Love the round up. We are painting our mount for our house numbers a cheery yellow to match.
