Four Front Door Designs With Paint & Paper Library

By Paint & Paper Library

A front door can create an elegant visual statement that will elevate any home exterior. A simple way to enhance your front door design is through a considered combination of colour and hardware. Whether you choose a classic brass finish or contemporary accessories, it’s important to consider how this will complement the colour of your front door to deliver a cohesive finish overall.
Discover four front door designs that feature Paint & Paper Library colours alongside premium ironmongery from Willow & Stone, to gain ideas and inspiration for your exterior update.



Paint and Paper Library Kasbah Pink Front Door with Willow & Stone Zero Black Fittings


Your front door is an excellent place to expand your palette with a striking paint colour that might be harder to incorporate in your interior schemes. An alluring pink such as the sultry Kasbah will bring both beauty and impact to your entrance. 
Rather than traditional metal furnishings, complete the design with contemporary matt black accessories, such as our Zero Black Collection. This will provide an intriguing point of difference to give your front door a statement finish.  




A blue green Salvia Paint & Paper Library Paint on door with Willow & Stone Aged Brass Door Furniture


With enduring appeal, Brass hardware is a staple choice for a traditional front door. Door accessories in this finish will bring instant warmth to your entrance, ideal for the decoration of the front doors of period properties, that should evoke a homely, characterful ambience. 
A tranquil blue green like Salvia provides a wonderful accompaniment to Aged Brass hardware. Its gentle, soothing hue will provide a natural transition between your home’s interior and exterior schemes. 




Silver Bee Door Knocker on Front Door Painted with Paint & Paper Library's Lady Char's Lilac Paint


Alternatively, a polished or satin metal finish such as our Satin Nickel range can provide a clean, elegant look. This refined silver hardware teams harmoniously with Lady Char’s Lilac for an attractive front door design. 
If you’re using a soft paint colour for your front door, you can afford to create design impact in other aspects, such as your choice of door knocker. Add instant personality to your entrance with a playful design like our Satin Silver Bumble Bee Door Knocker.




Light Antique Brass Ironmongery on Blue Door


Bold blues are fantastic shades to consider if you want to bring a more contemporary feel to your entrance. Profound, dark blues like Paint & Paper Library's Kigali and Plimsoll have a smart and sophisticated appearance, while a strong, muted mid-blue such as Blue Blood carries depth, character and impact. 
Combine Blue Blood with our Light Antique Brass furnishings for a coordinated finish. A sleek and practical door knocker such as our Light Antique Brass Slim Door Knocker will provide an elegant focal point.
