Front Door Friday: Turquoise & Chevron

Chester, Nova Scotia

If you've ever visited the seaside village of Chester, Nova Scotia, chances are this charming turquoise coloured chevron panelled door has caught your eye - as it did mine a couple of years ago.  I've posted a photo of this door before on the blog and on twitter but I think you'll agree its worth repeating.  A shingled house always stops me in my tracks but the unexpected colour of this front door paired with the grey shakes is truly sublime.   And the antique brass seashell door knocker,,,,hello, can I come in please!

Chester is a picturesque little village on the South Shore of Nova Scotia popular for sailing enthusiasts.  Its tree canopied streets are lined with charming historic homes.  Many of them are summer homes so this turquoise door colour perfectly suits the quaint coastal style of the community.  The closest colour match I can find is Sico's Paris 1900.  I think its especially interesting that here its paired with linen coloured trim as opposed to white, I think this evokes a more nostalgic vibe.

  1. Beautiful! I've been to Chester, but didn't have time to do much exploring - it was just a lunch stop. If I'd seen this door, I would have definitely snapped a picture!

  2. Where can I purchase a door like this? I cant seem to find it.

  3. Where can I buy this door?!

    Hi Sam, as I mentioned in the post I took the photo while walking through Chester village because I admired the door, the home doesn't belong to a client or anyone I know - I don't have any details about the house other than its location and that its a very old home. ~ Carol
