Smitten: My New Turquoise Door


Have you ever thought about painting a door in your home a favorite colour?

We just replaced the entrance to our now-nearly-complete basement with a new frosted glass door; and instead of painting it white like all the colonial-style doors in my home, I decided to give this one a little personality of its own!



I chose a shade of turquoise (of course!).  This door is in our open-concept kitchen/living room area, so it matches all my turquoise-inspired accents - like my drapery and backsplash. 

I am totally smitten.  The colour is Benjamin Moore Arctic Blue (2050-60).  LOVE it. I considered a whole range of colours in this family before settling on this one.  It's a really soft shade of robin's egg blue that is easy on the eyes and very soothing.  It makes me smile.

Here's how it looks in the context of some accessories:


So, if you've been considering painting a door in your home a great colour, my advice would be don't hesitate another second!

Until next time, happy decorating!

Love the color! Do you think it'd be too much in small dining room on all 4 walls? I have a black hutch and credenza. I'm running out tomorrow to pick up a sample.
