I never thought about painting inside doors. If you happen to love white walls like me, this is a great way to add a punch of color. And, if you live in a rental, when you move out you only have to re-paint a door instead of an entire apartment!

GORGEOUS! chelsea, your blog is off the hook right now.
love the light blue door … gets me thinking.
I have always wanted to do this. I have a giant over sized dark wood front door that I would love to paint the inside of….but I’m not sure I can stomach paint over it.
this is such a great idea! we have two interior glass-paned doors that would be perfect.
i am trying to stick with an all-grey color scheme for the walls (bedrooms, bathroom, hallway between living room and kitchen), but don’t have the energy to paint the rooms with too much stuff on the walls already. i wonder what colors would work best?
i’ll try to take photos this weekend and see what people think.
Simply perfect. I love the bright blue doors and white houses on Greece (think Mamma Mia).
That first photo is of Matthew Thompson’s home in New Orleans. He does custom woodwork.
I love a painted door – it adds character. we have a pink door (i had hoped for red) but it was more pink!
Brilliant! Love the less-committed way to add color. I also love that blue paint in the photo.
ooooh! that light blue door is stunning.
The second one is from Christopher Maya (I was saving the picture and saw that I had it saved already! haha).
what a brilliant idea! definitely seems like a practical solution to add color without going overboard – while still being unique. thanks!
so beautiful! you find the most lovely things 😉
We just painted our side door red. I love the idea, as well:)
i have always wanted a red door!
Those doors are so adorable. Really the door has to be a good one to start off with. But it is indeed lovely!
Carrie + Sunny- Thank you for the photo links!
K. Sundari Carmody- You are so right. I think it has to be a pretty french paned door!
I grew up in a gray house that had the red door. Loved it! (it was a plain ol’ front door)
I love this idea. I suddenly have a weekend project.
I’ve had that bottom shot in my inspiration file for awhile now…it makes my heart flutter.
These are pretty doors to begin with — and the color makes them stellar. I’ve always wanted a glossy navy or turquoise door. Here’s hoping someday..
