Nordic Blue Front Door & Red House

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.

Why I refer to Love as "Luv"?
All my life I have been inspired by both my parents and a close aunt with their beautiful & unique antique decorating styles, much of which I incorporate into my own home designs today.  Over the years their letters, cards, emails, presents, and more all included the spelling Luv vs. Love.  And I have adored it!  I have always taken this to be a part of a generation gone by that I treasure dearly!  And I hope you will too friends!
