with the current project I have an interior stress skin wall with a circle door and I'm using the donage (10") from the wall and setting it in a concrete foundation wall form to pour the street side of the garden courtyard

I believe we made a special mix of paint for this door, however, Shermin-Williams has a paint color similar called Honorable Blue. I'll continue to keep my eyes out for you!

8. Whimsical Blue on Secondary DoorsIf 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.
Vanessa Brunner added this to How to Choose a Front Door Color
Blue. Although it's often seen indoors, more vibrant shades of blue rarely make an appearance on exteriors. Shake things up by pairing a bright blue with a natural or neutral exterior for an unexpected welcome to your home.Guide: When to Paint Your Door Blue
