Blue is an interesting colour for front doors. Did you know that blue has been proven to lower blood pressure and heart rate? Not to mention it bumps your property price the highest of all colours. We love it though, for the great variety of moods that you can create with this shade. From punchy colour pops to nature inspired pastels, we've listed our favourite blues for your front door.
Go big or go home - Cobalt is a blue that packs a punch. While there's no denying its bold appeal, it does still retain that cool, calming vibe - reminding us of bright, happy summer days. Chose the right level of vibrancy for the look you want; extra vivid for a super strong statement or mute it down a touch for a subtler look. We love the glossy shine of polished nickel hardware when paired with cobalt shades.

What could be more uplifting than recreating a clear spring day on your front door? Calming and welcoming with timeless appeal, we like to keep the undertones clean and white as this feels fresher and newer when compared to the grey based blues of the last few years. Polished and Unlacquered Brass hardware looks amazing on this fresh cool blue hue.

Bluey/Green or Greeny/Blue? Either way, this deep moody shade is a great alternative to traditional navy or black. If you're looking for a regal, timeless colour but with a modern twist, teal is the colour for you. The green undertones make it a great option on red brick houses and when it comes to the hardware, it HAS to be brass. Teal and brass equal a match made in heaven.

Cornflower is a 'pure' shade of mid, unadulterated blue! Elegant and restful but with some joyful vibrancy, its a very versatile shade. We love both brass and nickel hardware against Cornflower. If you want to inject a bit of warmth, choose brass, while if you prefer to play up the cool vibes, opt for nickel.
