Example palette: With a steely blue door you have your pick of siding colors. A couple of options are included in this palette. Clockwise from top left (all from Mythic Paint): Seaside Reflections 026-5, Kind of Blue 026-1 and Wrought Iron 140-1.
5. Blue Door With a Soft Exterior Palette
This home has a fantastic soft paint palette that picks up some of the cool shades in the stone.
Example palette: Here are a couple of palette options featuring a soft sage green for the siding and a watery turquoise blue for the doors and trim. Clockwise from top left: Gentle Wave 5007-7C and The Harbor AR1222 (both from Valspar), and Aegean Blue MSL118 and Morning Fog MSL115 (both from Martha Stewart).
7. Blue Door With Warm Hues
This shade of blue resembles patinated copper, a metal commonly used in Spanish colonial architecture. It's a natural fit with the warm, golden hue on the house.
8. Whimsical Blue on Secondary Doors
If you like the blue doors shown here but don't envision the colors for your own front door, consider painting a secondary door on your property, such as in a gate. It can add a fun focal point to your hardscaping.
Example palette: The vibrant electric blue in the previous photo works well with the cool-hued stone. If you were to paint your house to work with a blue door like this one, you might want to stick with light neutrals that veer toward the cooler (grayer) end of the spectrum. Try (clockwise from top left, all from Dunn Edwards): Beautiful Blue DEA136, Silver City DE6337, Sparkling Frost DE6345 and Frostbite DE6274.
