Friends we have three front doors on our red ranch here in Vermont. I have been trying to think of a way to make them pop against our red house with black shutters for a while now. When we first bought the house I painted them all an antique yellow and that worked for a while. Until I discovered the beautiful Nordic Blue front door color of Sweden.
The Nordic Blue that I chose was the C2 Inuvik Ice Eggshell
It is such a warm color for the front door against the red house and it will be beautiful in the winter months against all that white snow!
Nordic Blue Front Door
I applied two coats to each of our three front doors. It was really an easy transformation. I left the doors and knobs on and painted around them. This was about a 2-hour project, max.
Full disclosure: It’s been raining for about 6 weeks straight here in Vermont at the time of this post, which really made the photography a bear. But we are all friends here and I hope you will enjoy the post!
Hearts are also a big part of the Nordic style. I found this rock wreath at a local nursery, Mettowee Nursery to hang on the front door.
Notice the puddles on the landing? LOL, It’s been a tough spring here in Vermont this year.
I switch up the flowers between a basket, which I luv the texture, and an old terra-cotta pot that my mother gave me a few years ago, where the coloring looks so fun next to the new Nordic blue front door.
Here I added a large burlap bow to the heart stone wreath.
I can’t wait for all the flowers to bloom around this front door. Follow me on Instagram to see the updates to this space.
