The Best Way to Choose a Front Door Colour from Palm Springs

How do you choose the colour of your front door?

Well if you have a white or cream house (or another pretty neutral shade) without any fixed elements, technically, your options are endless.

But are they?

The way to create flow from the outside to the inside is to look inside your front door. What are the colours in your entry or your adjoining rooms? That’s where you’ll find your front door colour.

If you haven’t really committed to a colour in your house, then you can simply choose any of the ones in this post.

Terreeia and I have been in Palm Desert for the month of January with my Mom, and this weekend we took a drive around the Palm Canyon neighborhood where all the prettiest and most famous front doors live. My Mom drove the car and I jumped out to take photos.

Here’s ‘That pink door’ the most famous one on the door tour. There is constantly someone out front taking a picture. It’s a good thing the design of many of these mid-century homes are focused around the pool in the back so the owners aren’t bothered by the constant stream of photographers.

All front door pics taken by yours truly 🙂 And I’ve even matched the colours for you in Benjamin Moore AND Sherwin Williams. And I’ve also included photos of what a room inside the house would look like if it flowed with the front door colour.

No front door here, just an interesting, curved driveway with the car that matches the house.

My Mom and I climbed the Bump & Grind trail in Palm Desert many times, because it was only a 10 minute walk from the house we rented (Terreeia has a bad knee so she couldn’t come with us). Today, we went the highest we’d been the entire month, and here we are (below):

I’m wearing the pocket plus which is this magnetic pouch you can put your phone in when you’re running in your work-out gear. We bought it at the market in Palm Desert one weekend.

I feel so blessed to have a young Mom (she’s only 20 years older than me).  If I didn’t live a 2 minutes drive away from her, I’d be REALLY missing her now that we’re going home, it’s been so nice living with her for the past five weeks.

Have a wonderful week everyone!
