You could say I have a fetish for doors this month. Having featured the wonderful contemporary doors of Karim Rashid in last week’s post, this week’s blog is about exterior doors. Farrow & Ball recently ran a Great Outdoors competition in search of the best exterior door. Here is a peek at the winner and some of the finalists that unsurprisingly have a real Farrow & Ball feel.

The winner Clare Winsor from the UK says this about her front door:

“Our door is designed on 10 Downing Street and so makes a bit of a statement. It is beautifully proportioned but softened with a Magnolia growing on either side. A front door says a lot about how people feel about their home.”

The following images are some of the finalists which I thought were great…

Love this door which is painted with Farrow & Ball Light Blue – a similar Plascon Inspired Colour is White Opal G1-E2-3, a beautiful greyed green.

Our front door is a feature that welcomes us each time we come home. Painting it your favourite colour, or a colour that reflects your home and family, will give you lots of joy each and every time you see it.

If deciding what paint to use for your exterior door, we recommend Plascon Enamel doors and trims. This has a high-gloss finish. For a satin finish you can use Plascon Velvaglo.
