Nordic Blue Front Door & A Rustic Red House

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 color of Sweden.

The Nordic Blue that I chose was the C2 Inuvik Ice Eggshell

It is such a warm color against the red house and it will be beautiful in the winter months against all that white snow!

I applied two coats to each of our three 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 door.

Here I added a large burlap bow to the heart stone wreath.

Pin these ideas for Later!

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.
