inspired: blue interior doors

It's been so long since we've seen the sun around these parts, it's starting to feel like we live in the Pacific Northwest.  I may be loving the cold weather, but I'm definitely craving a pop of soft color to liven things up a bit around here. I posted a picture on Instagram the other day (@bungalowblue) of the French doors leading from my living room to my screened in porch and how I decided to give them a fresh coat of glossy paint - bye, bye white; hello color!  Surprisingly, everyone thought I was going to go with glossy black, but I'm going with GLOSSY BLUE!!!  Nothing crazy or too bright, a few shades darker than the light gray/blue on the walls, but enough to make a soft and subtle difference.  I have bamboo Roman shades on the doors with white curtains flanking them, so I think the contrast will be nice.  I've got two coats of primer on them already and am hoping to paint them this afternoon, so I'll be sure to post after pics.  In the meantime, how about a little inspiration?  No one does blue better than Steven Gambrel.  And major bonus, many of the homes in his portfolio boast soft gray/blue doors.  Perfection.  What are you doing to beat the winter blah's?  Adding some color?  Or are you loving the gray?
