I Have This Thing with Doors

Classic Door

As my husband and I are looking at houses in Fairfield County, one thing that I’ve been taking note of as we see house after house is the door situation. I try to picture the home after I’ve painted the door a bright red or shiny lacquered black (currently the frontrunners) and it makes me so much more excited about each property. For inspiration, I’ve been scouring Pinterest and décor sites and have found some seriously amazing doors. If you have a thing with doors, check out this hashtag on Instagram. It’s dangerous.

On October 3rd, paint company Farrow & Ball is challenging Connecticut fans to find a mini Farrow & Ball painted door for a chance to win a freshly painted door in the color of your choice at your own house. (Seriously, best prize ever!). You can see some of their famed doors in the photos below.

They’ll be hiding six doors at secret locations throughout Greenwich and Westport and sharing clues as to where you can find them via Twitter (@FarrowandBallUS) and with the hashtag #FindtheFBDoor. Follow them on Twitter now so you’re in-the-know! The scavenger hunt will begin in both towns simultaneously at 11am EST on Saturday 10/3 and conclude with a final clue at 3pm EST.

    Love this, Julia! Mitch and I are currently trying to decide on a door color, too. We’re between navy and red, and can’t decide!!
