Make A Grand Entrance!

Make a Grand Entrance!

You walk through it everyday and it’s one of the first things people notice about your home, yet it’s often neglected – your front door!

Your colour choices for your entry are unlimited and should express the personality of the inside of your house while still complementing the overall style and architecture of your home.

Benjamin Moore has a line of paints, Aura Grand Entrance, that offers wonderful traditional and whimsical choices to help make that front door a focal point. Here are a few colours that I think are worth considering:

There’s definitely something about a red door – traditional and stately yet full of punch. Aura’s Claret Rose is a gorgeous shade of red that looks great with cream or white trim. It hits just the right note of not too orange and not too firetruck red.


  • English Scone – who can resist this shade of yellow? Not too lemon yellow and just the right amount of cream, this door colour looks like it’s made to showcase greenery and flowers in the summer and brighten up any winter day.


  • While black may seem a default colour choice, its versatility ad high impact is hard to beat. Aura’s Tavern Door in a high gloss or 10 Downing Street (need I say more?) give great presence and sophistication to an entrance.


  • Are you bored of your taupe door? Try Venetian Sky for a real makeover. This turquoise shade of blue is contemporary and bright yet still quite neutral. If you’re worried that your bold door colour choice won’t look good on the inside of your house, paint the inside door side white.
