My Blue Front Door: Sherwin Williams Naval

My blue front door color is Sherwin Williams Naval. This is the perfect navy blue for entry doors or a front door with sidelights, especially if the sidelights are white!

I wish I had a picture of my old entry doors. They were wood double doors in the barn style…with the “X” on the bottom and diamond mullions in glass on the top. They were the 1960 orginals and they were O-L-D. The first few years we lived here, snow actually blew in under the doors. As soon as I could feasibly manage it, I replaced those entry doors with a beautiful fiberglass front door with sidelights. When it was installed, the door was white. Of course, I couldn’t stand that and promptly painted it red. 
I looked back to the very beginning of my archives, but could not find a picture of the red door. That doesn’t really matter because my front door didn’t stay red for long

Sherwin Williams Naval

Back in the spring of 2011, I gave my kitchen cabinets a fresh coat of paint and some updated hardware. I knew I wanted a section of cabinets painted an accent color and I thought blue would be perfect. What I didn’t know was that picking out blue paint is hard! After a great deal of thought, and trips to the paint store, I finally settled on Sherwin Williams Naval. When I saw it on my kitchen cabinets, I knew instantly I was going to have a blue front door as well.

My Blue Front Door

When I published my Frequently Asked Questions, I shared that the most-asked question, for years, has been “What is the color of your front door?” I’ve answered it countless times, but I never mind.  Having a blue front door made such a difference in our home’s curb appeal and if I can help you do the same, I’m very glad. 

Here are details: Like I said before, the door was originally red. We applied a coat of gray primer followed by two coats of Sherwin Williams Naval in a satin finish. The actual product we used was Duration Exterior Acrylic Latex.

Our front porch faces east so it gets the morning sun. It is, however, shaded by the roof of our porch. We repainted the door once a few years ago…just one quick coat of Naval. The color has not faded at all and is super easy to clean.

Painting A Front Door with Sidelights

Painting entry doors can be tricky. If you have a front door with sidelights, it’s best to paint the sidelights a neutral color, and the door should be painted an accent color. Include any trim around the door as well. This will give your home maximum curb appeal by providing a contrast that catches the eye. In my case, the sidelights are white and I have a blue front door.

Other Blues for Entry Doors

There are a ton of choices when it comes to navy blue paint. To choose the right one for you, simply use the process of elimination.

  • Visit your paint store and come home with several swatch strips. 
  • Look at the swatches outside at different times of day…because the light will change.
  • Start eliminating the ones you don’t like.
  • Consider the other colors on your home and if you have a front door with sidelights, consider the color of the sidelights. 
  • Finally, make a decision. If you make a mistake, it’s just paint.

Of course, my favorite navy blue (and not just for entry doors) is Sherwin Williams Naval. If you are looking for a classic navy paint, but aren’t sold on Naval, here are some other choices for a blue front door:

  1. Benjamin Moore Hale Navy
  2. Benjamin Moore Old Navy
  3. Sherwin Williams Indigo*
  4. Sherwin Williams Salty Dog*

*Some Sherwin Williams colors are available at Lowe’s as part of the HGTV Home Collection.

Most of the items found on our front porch can be found in my Amazon Shop.

    We are having our aluminum siding painted this year. I love the indigo or navel blue. Black shutters and white trim. What color door? I am struggling with this. Yours looks beautiful.

    1. Ann Drake says:

      Hi Mary Lou…so are you painting your siding navy blue?

  2. Kathy Fitzgerald says:

    I’m in the process of painting my house. I have brown brick, half way up in front and around the door. I have Brown clad windows. Megagriege for the house paint and incredible white for the trim. I have a door with some silver and glass inserts on top and one side insert with the same. Do you think the naval color would be appropriate or something else. Do I paint the side insert the same as door or the megagreige. Thanks for the help.

    1. Ann Drake says:

      Hi Kathy! Would you be able to send me a picture? My email address is I can answer better if I can see the entire door. Typically the side insert and trim around the door would be white to match your existing trim. Thanks!

  3. Sheila Douglas says:

    Hi, Ann,
    How do you think Sherwin Williams Naval would look on a front door in gloss? I love the color, but I’ve alas loved a gloss finish on a front door.

  4. Hi Ann, I started following you when you published the “naval” front door post. Your blog is great such cute & inspiring decorating & kitchen ideas. That post showed a kitchen cupboard painted a dark color. Please tell me what color that is. The shelves were painted naval but the cupboard looked more like a light charcoal color in the photograph. I have one that I want to paint. Thank you in advance!

  5. Suzanne Cox says:

    I Love it! I was wondering if you would share the brand and style of the front door? Thanks

  6. Hi Ann,

    What finish is the paint? This looks amazing!

  7. 5 stars
    Hello. Could you possibly share a picture of your front if it has shutters? I am struggling to repaint our door and shutters blue again but in this pretty shade or change.
    Thank you!

  8. Hi Ann, I just stumbled on your bed site as I was doing a search for SW Naval front doors! What a treat to find you! Your home is beautiful. We moved into our house about a year ago and I knew then that one of the first things I wanted to do was repaint the front door. I’ve had my eye on this color for a while, but I’m not sure it will work …. I really don’t want to get into repainting the trim and shutters… just the door. My house is a dark red brick (yes, I’d love to paint the brick, but HOA rules won’t allow.) The trim is a taupe color and the shutters are black. The door is red right now, and it is not a very pretty red. Do you think the Naval will work with Taupe and Black? My concern is it may not give enough contrast…. but its just the front door, so if it fails, I can always paint over it! Thanks for your input!

    1. Ann Drake says:

      Hi Dana! Honestly, I don’t think navy would look good with the black and taupe. Have you considered black? That would probably be my first choice. Good luck!

  9. Is your door handle black or bronze?

  10. Claudia Cook says:


    I’m a big fan of the navy blue door, specifically, the one boasting a grapevine wreath with white silk flowers, the large planters holding ferns! Absolutely beautiful.
    Which white silk flowers did you choose for the wreath?


  11. Michele McCool says:

    Hi! Can you do the navy door with a pale yellow house, white trim, and black shutters?

    1. Ann Drake says:

      Hi Michele…I’m not sure a navy door would be the best choice. I think black would be beautiful, or perhaps a contrasting color, like a dark red. Another option, would be yellow. I definitely recommend getting paint samples, but go to a slightly darker yellow than your siding. Good luck and thank you!

  12. What color white is your trim? I plan on doing my front flipper naval and using “extra white” for trim.

    1. Ann Drake says:

      Hi Dana…the white is right off the shelf at Sherwin Williams. I don’t think it’s a custom color. Extra White sounds perfect!

  13. Dannielle @ Chattel Houses says:

    This colour is so beautiful. I’ve narrowed down my front door options to In the Navy and Naval. I’m glad that you mentioned the position of your house, because my home in a similar position. I was worried about the sun fading out the paint, but you’ve reassured me. Thanks!

  14. Ann-will you please provide the silk flower names that you used in your wreath? This is the first one I’ve seen that I absolutely LOVE!! Thank you so much!

    1. Ann Drake says:

      Hi Teresa…can you tell me which wreath you are referring to? Thanks!

  15. Pam Engle says:

    I have a black door which I love, but I’m lovin your blue door even more!! Do you have shutters and did you paint them blue as well? I’m not sure about changing my black shutters!!

  20. Sheila DelCharco says:

    Do you have tips for painting your front door? Did you take it off the hinges? Remove the hardware? Sand? I’m so intimidated to paint my front door! It needs it (and I want to paint mine navy as well) but I’m afraid to try! (I love yours!)

    1. Ann Drake says:

      Hi Sheila! We did not take the door off, but we did remove the hardware. We didn’t sand…but it probably wouldn’t hurt. Just make sure the door is really clean. My door didn’t have cracks, but if you have any, fill them in. We used a coat of gray primer followed by two coats of the Naval. I used a satin finish and bought the best outdoor paint that Sherwin Williams sells. Good luck…you can do it!

      1. Kristine Hill says:

        Can you tell me the name of the red color that was on previously?

        1. Ann Drake says:

          No…I’m sorry. It was so long ago and I no longer have the can.

  21. I love to update my front porch every month, so new ideas are always so very helpful!

  22. I LOVE the door color and ran out to get a swatch of it from a SW dealer. Unfortunately, the swatch doesn’t look like the color on my screens 😞

  23. Hi Ann;

    LOVE your blog and your navy door. I am planning on painting my front door navy too. However, the door is on the south side of my home, with two huge maple trees in the front yard, which shade the front door. I am wondering if I should go with a slightly brighter navy? Please let me know your thoughts!

    1. Ann Drake says:

      Hi Cynthia…our street is very shaded. We live in a wooded area and even though I don’t have trees in my front yard, they are all around me. My porch gets a little bit of morning sun but that’s it. I think it depends on what is surrounding the door. Your siding color, trim color, is there an overhang on your porch. If your siding is light then I think it would be OK to go with the deeper navy. Good luck with your decision!

      1. Ann, Thank you SO MUCH for your quick and detailed response to my post!!! I am happy to hear about your home and the shade, and that naval worked for you. In fact, it didn’t only “work” for you, the door is a brilliant color on your home!!! I don’t know if you are aware of it, but the naval front door color choice was affirmed on a Home Front interview with the Sherman Williams color consultant in the Washington Post. My home has almost the identical brick as yours (with perhaps a little darker charcoal in parts). My brick detail in front goes maybe 2/3 up the side of the front of the home, and there is white siding above the brick. My roof is a medium dark charcoal. However, both the roof and the brick are multi-colored which is one reason it was crucial to choose a front door color that did not add too much variation, but still stood out. When I saw your door, it seemed like the perfect choice. I got a sample pot of naval and painted a medium canvas with it. Due to all the shade, from the street it appears to be the color of the roof. Up close you can see that it is navy. With your new input, I am defiantly going to paint the door naval, as soon as the rain period in the midwest is over. Thank you SO MUCH for your input! I LOVE your blog and your photos!!! ~ Cynthia

  24. I always enjoy your front door and porch posts because I love decorating my front porch too. Does the front of your house have shutters and if so, what color are your shutters?

    Thanks for sharing, Louise

    I have always loved your door color! I might use that color for my front door! :)

  28. Donna Marie says:

    I wish I did not have 2 dogs so I could have a nice back porch!!! But I try. Yours is so comforting.

  29. Love the color of your door! Had a deep tan door in one house, and a fiberglass door in the last home that was stained to look like wood. I loved it – but the front door got lots of sun and it faded fast. I was always touching it up. Do you have sunlight issues with your door ? We have a similar color blue door now in our new apartment – not sure what brand or color – but we LOVE it. You can see it on my blog. And the best part is it is indoors so no sun fading it ! Was not sure about downsizing and apartment living, but we are loving it! Thanks for all your great ideas, printables, a wonderful blog!

  30. Shelley @ Calypso in the Country says:

    Naval is such a great color and your door looks beautiful! Ironically, my dining room used to be red and last week we just painted it Naval! Love the color. Enjoy your week!

  40. Hi. I am redecorating my front porch and as much as I don’t like the brick it isn’t something I can change. So I started my search for decorating ideas. I love the front door color, but I’m really interested in the pots with the ferns. Are the ferns real or artificial? Where did you find the pots?

I would love to have two tall planters flanking my front door. I’m sure it’s been awhile since you purchased yours, but may I ask where got them?

  48. I love it! Of course…you probably knew that I would. ;) I think that I fall more deeply in love with our front door each time I look at it. :) Congrats on a beautiful home to drive up to and live in. Home is such a blessing. k.

Your home is a perfect example of how to update the exterior of what one might say, ‘typical houses’, because now, I bet it’s a stand-out in your street! Love the navy doors too, I think I actually like it better than the red.

    I love, love your blue front door….so glad you found a color. I will have to remember the color you used. Your home is beautiful and you can take such pride in everything you've done. It's so worth it, isn't it. You are so lucky to have a handy hubby because mine isn't and it really hinders projects unless I want to do it on my own. Anyway, such a great blue front door!!

    You have one beautiful home and you can tell a lot of love has been put into it! I love the new color of your door but what really took my breath away was the wreath you made for it, such a great job on it, really pretty!

    You have really done an amazing job! It looks wonderful!!
    My age? Oh well, at least my kids know the song from my singing it. I guess that I should change the title of that post!
    I hope that your painting arrived and that it is what you expected.
    Have a great weekend,

    You have created great curb appeal! And I just love the navy door. It contrasts so nicely with the brick and the white trim. And all the little details just work so nicely together – the wreath, the ferns, the mat, etc… Great job!

  123. Ann –
    Your home looks very nice – I love the new look to the door – wow! I know what you mean about curb appeal as I have none as well. Yours looks really nice – welcoming and sweet. Your investment and work paid off! I am wondering how you get the name of your blog on the bottom of all the pictures you post – would love to know how to do this if you have a moment!

  124. I love the new naval blue door and matching welcome mat. I think it makes you perfectly normal that that mat made your day. :)

  125. I like your new door colour very much.
    We once had a house that looked a lot like yours – it was just the best family house!

    Truly gorgeous. You must be so proud. I love the door color. We painted ours a bluish green to match the flagstone steps. Yours is really elegant and the striped door mat is so fun.
