My Top Ten Farrow and Ball Front Door Colours

The time has come to take a delicious detour into the world of Farrow and Ball-painted front doors. One of the lovely things about Farrow and Ball paints is the way they change so much in different lights and never more so than when on a front door.

Here's our front door...

...which is currently painted in Farrow and Ball's Powder Blue Gloss paint. It's served us well but it needs a fresh new coat so.....

Here are my top ten Farrow and Ball front door colours....

1. Farrow and Ball Hardwick White
2. Farrow and Ball Railings
4. Farrow and Ball French Gray
5. Farrow and Ball Green Blue
8. Farrow and Ball Lamp Room Gray
9. Farrow and Ball Card Room Green
10. Farrow and Ball Ball Green

This rustic door is painted in Farrow and Ball Hardwick White, a gorgeously uncertain grey-taupe.

We already have Farrow and Ball Blue Gray in our kitchen but it's a strong contender for our front door too...

Farrow and Ball Downpipe changes dramatically depending on the light; it moves from a murky charcoal to a definite deep teal.

Farrow and Ball Lamp Room Gray is restful and serene...and a little bit industrial chic.

If I paint anything else in Hardwick White my husband will mutiny!

Perhaps that's his way of asking you to paint HIM in Hardwick White? ;-)

We've done ours in Green Smoke and it looks fabulous against the red brick - really pleased with it. Several of the other colours you've referenced we have in our house though!

I really, really loved pale powder... But, I understand the need for a change every now and then. My favourite is probably "Green Blue" and it's funny you say it looks "French", then second favourite is blue grey (is it "gray"?) and I also like the look of the last two greens on bricks. I can't wait for new colour studies! They are always fascinating.

You mean we have to choose? Hmmfph! I'm going with "Railings" (love that brass against it), Hardwick White, Lamp Room Grey, and Card Room Green - especially against stone and slate.

I am loving that French Gray. So rich looking. Would love to paint my little office that color.

Sarah, it would be brilliant if you could do a similar post on front door colours that go well with our local ironstone (Hornton stone and other quarries) - as you move east from the Cotswolds, into Northamptonshire the stone goes darker, with red / rust (hence ironstone!) tones, and shading into blue / greys. The stone is spectacular, but plain white is too harsh, the creams too similar to the grout, so in resisting the temptation to go Cotswold greens, have you seen any more successful combinations ?

Those are all very enticing colors that you have chosen, I can definitely see why you enjoy them so much. When did you become such a connoisseur of doors? You have a great eye and an obvious passion for all that is involved with the process of choosing great decor!

Does the entrance hall or room need to reflect similar colours to the front door.
I would really love a green door, but this steps directly into my family/ dining room that I have recently painted blue. I am happy to go with a blue door but not sure whether I need to? Please can someone give some opinions thanks 😊

I love Ball Green. I don’t come across it very much. I have my front door in this colour with salmon pebble dash and charcoal and cream tiled porch.
