There are two things that I’m obsessed with when it comes to home design and of course, you guys already know I have a thing about paint colors. My other obsession is interior doors. Combine the two and I’m in design heaven! Today I wanted to merge my two dream worlds and share some of the prettiest interior door paint colors to inspire you to see the possibilities.
Over the last couple of years, veering off the traditional all white track and painting interior doors a non-white color has really surged. I know many of you have started doing it and love it but for the rest of you, let me just tempt you to dip your toes in the waters and see the pretty possibilities. (If I can confirm paint color, I have listed it below the image).
If you’re not quite ready to do a bold color or a dark black, a nice (and safe) compromise is gray. Just look at how amazing these gray doors look.

You’ll also notice that you do not have to paint your trim the same color as the door. In fact, the white trim mixed with a different door color works and is beautiful!

If you’re not ready to paint your interior doors a different color, you can test the waters by painting the interior side of your front door just to see what you think.

If you have sliding doors in your home, they too look amazing in gray!

Almost black doors look so amazing and the trick is the “almost” black part. True black is very strong and can be harsh and while there are some circumstances and homes that a true black looks fabulous on interior doors, I always try and steer my paint clients away from a true black. Just by taking the edge off the black by choosing an almost black with a gray or brown undertone makes all the difference because the black is softened and diffused.
Here are some pretty almost black interior door colors.

If I can’t talk you out of doing an almost black, choose a black that at least has a neutral/gray undertone, which will help diffuse and soften.

I know blue sounds a little more daring for interior doors but stick with me here because the right shade a blue can look amazing and neutral.
Brittany from Addison’s Wonderland recently painted all of her interior doors a mix of 50% Sherwin-Williams Stardew and 50% Sherwin-Williams Uncertain Gray. The color turned out absolutely stunning!

Lots of great colors here to put on your radar! Hopefully I have convinced you to dip your toes in the colorful water! Maybe? There is no rule that says that you have to paint all your doors in your home the same color. Maybe start with your master bedroom and paint closet/bathroom doors to see if you like it? I always tell my clients, it’s only paint! If you hate it, you can always change it. Geez… I’m really pushy today, lol! You know I just want to you smile when you see the pretty colors in your home! 😉
