Painting the front door a fresh, new color is a quick way to add a little curb appeal and welcome spring! A nicely painted door can make your home look welcoming and set the tone for what to expect when upon entering.
Favorite light colors include whites, cream, taupe and tan. The light gray above is one of my favorite colors with brick and accenting with blue flowers and containers adds to the appeal! Black is also a classic choice for a brick house.
Eggplant? Why not? Unexpected and surprisingly elegant!

Classic black and white. It's the gray statuary and greenery that makes this so pretty.
I don't know that many houses could pull off this brightly painted door but I think it looks beautiful here with the stone and red geraniums.
Red doors were often a sign of prosperity. People would paint their door red when there home was paid off making the red door a status symbol. In Feng Shui a red door is said to promote your fame and reputation (especially if it is south facing).

I read that most people like yellow doors, although black, white and red are the most popular.
Navy blue often looks good with light blue or gray homes and light blue is a good choice for dark gray.
Almost any deep tone color will complement a white house.
I don't know about you but I wish I had more than one front door! A few more things to consider are 1. a contrasting color usually looks best, as long as it is not too bright or too pastel, 2. consider the color of your garage door and other architectural features ie. shutters and trim, 3. consider a total of three colors: one for the body, one for the trim/shutters, and one for the front door.
Have any other color combination ideas? Which one of these is your favorite?
