Mine is Green Gloss and its matched our house which is red painted bricks (the bricks were already painted before i moved in).

i wanted Green colour to stand out from the row of houses on the main road.

Currently an unpleasant orangey-brown (previous owner's choice). Tomorrow I am painting it a muted pale green colour (think it is called Chappell Green).

Brown - I hate it and will be painting it blue, when I have the time

Red because I love pillar box red doors.

Currently white (as it was when we moved in). Will be gloss racing green in a few mnonths time when the huse is 10 years old and we are alowed to alter the outside appearance fom all the others is the street (damn private residence association) hmm

Used to be green but now it's a F&B blue - chosen because I love blue and it will go better with the rug in the hallway. Turned out a brighter shade than I expected though...

Lavender blue - my fave colour

It's not only oak but it has to be stained in antique oak because the house is listed and in a conservation area (how dull!)

Sort of sagey green, because was fed up of the previous glossy red showing all the dirt and dust.

we just painted it a high gloss pinky cherise colour called Russian velvet 3 by Dulux. it's gorgeous.

Black to match the cast iron gutters and black and white victorian floor tiles.

Mine is a very pale greyish blue low-gloss paint from Farrow and Ball. We have chrome letter box etc and it looks great. I love it.

I really can't stand white upvc doors with those weird handles. Why would anyone choose that?

Farrow and Ball Ballroom Blue

Saw it at a restaurant in Bath and thought it looked great

to match woodwork on the house

CheeryCherry Sun 16-Aug-09 12:28:50

White, with black hinges/letterbox etc. Because i hated the red that was on when we moved, and cos i think it looks more, ermm, stylish. wink
