What Color is Your Front Door?

I love the look of painted front doors, they have such a warm, welcoming feeling to them.

RoseSiO2 wants to amp up her curb appeal but isn't quite sure what to do.

"I really want to change the color but I am stumped on what color to paint it. The shutters will have to stay white for the time being. I was thinking a brick red, but some of the neighbors with this house color have already done that, and I think it will be bright against the yellow inside. My other thought was black, but I think it might be boring. The front door also has a stormdoor in front of it with a large window that covers about 2/3 of the door. I think I will be painting that the same color that I decide in painting the door."

Do you have any suggestions for her? What color is your front door?

Ours is a dark green, kind of forest green I guess, not sure what the colour is called, lol.  Look for doors of Ireland, the Irish are really into decorating their doors.

Ours is brown because it's solid wood and stained dark to match the trim and other doors inside the house.  It's original to our house that was built in the 20s.

Ours is black. Looks cool new but you can see all the dirt on it now.

Ours is black also, with a Pan door knocker and the old classic door knobs, all the doors on the inside of the house are old skeleton key doors

I love red doors.  We have a brick house with cream trim and I am trying to talk hubby into doing the trim either yellow or sage and painting our door brick red.  I think it would be so much nicer and eye popping!  It would give our house more curb appeal.  He is so plain janeish (is that a word?) though!
