Paint it blue

While I was in the UK recently I was struck by the number of blue doors I saw.  Where I live  I have a difficult time convincing someone to go with a blue door, sometimes navy, but never a vibrant blue.  Blue was also  a constant accent colour I saw in France and Greece.  Is it a cultural or climate thing?  Living in the middle of the North Atlantic, we have our share of fog and cold so possibly blue is too cool for an entrance colour.  Red doors are very popular as a result. I'll have to investigate this further. As you can see blue can be many things.

Bright and vibrant and warmer, these are my top three doors  from all the ones I saw.

and getting cooler  ...

and paler...

and paler still.

How do you feel about blue doors?
