Purple is a dramatic color that can sometimes be challenging to work with on both the inside and the outside of your home. In interior spaces, it can be tough to find a purple shade that is neither too bright, making your room feel neon, nor too dark, making the area feel cave-like. On exterior walls, purple certainly makes a statement, but can ultimately be too over-the-top for many homeowners. Furthermore, for those who live in neighborhoods with bylaws, purple isn’t usually an acceptable color.
One great way to work purple into your home design scheme without getting negative attention is to paint your front door. As you read this guide, you’ll see a few tips for how to create beautiful color combinations that involve purple doors. Hopefully, this will inspire you to take the plunge at your own house if you’ve been struggling to incorporate this regal hue!
- Bluish-purple and light grey – If your home features light grey siding, which typically has a lot of blue in it, choosing a purple door with noticeably blue undertones is a great idea. This color combination is edgy and modern without being off-putting, making it the perfect choice for homeowners who are a little bit quirky but live in fairly traditional areas. It is worth noting that dark colored doors, like bluish-purple ones, tend to fade more quickly than light doors if the front of your house gets a great deal of sun.
- Violet and medium or dark grey – If your home has a medium-to-dark exterior, choosing a violet door with lots of red undertones is a good call. This color pairs well with deeper grey shades, brightening them and making your entry feel simultaneously cheerful and moody. You can play to either of these with your porch accessories. If, for instance, you want to cultivate a dramatic aesthetic, pick dark-colored planters and an Edison-bulb light fixture. If, however, you want your home to be bright and colorful, select eclectic, bold plants and mosaic vases to place them in.
- Royal purple and tan – Tan houses may seem run-of-the-mill, but you can add some flavor to your residence with a royal purple front door. This splash of color will draw the eye to your home’s entryway, so make sure you accessorize appropriately. Many homeowners choose metallic door hardware and porch light fixtures to play to the glam feeling royal purple naturally has.
- Dark purple and sage green – Homes with sage green exteriors tend to stand out from the crowd a bit no matter what because they are not terribly common. Adding a dark purple, bordering on black entry door can make these homes true showstoppers. If you live in a sage green residence, consider choosing dark purple double doors, if space allows, for a beautiful look that will stop passersby in their tracks.
