Help with front door color

GretabeeJuly 25, 2013
We just closed on our first house. The exterior paint was recently updated so we don't plan on changing it anytime soon (plenty of things inside need to be done first). The door currently matches the light sage trim color. The door is kind of scuffed up and I'd like to repaint it, but I want to liven it up with something fun. Any suggestions?

I know you are going to get the typical responses of red or yellow for your door so here's a thought!! LOL

I recently did an article for This Old House on front door colors: http://www.thisoldhouse.com/toh/photos/0,,20567862,00.html There are lots of ideas and different style doors.

I also created an app called Color911. There you can create your own color palette, choose colors from something that has inspired you, or look at the many color themes to see if there is a look that inspires you, You can choose any number of colors within a palette, I would take a look and see if there is a palette that iinterests you and goes with your house and trim color.
I've attached a palette to give you an idea of how the palettes work... I hope this one inspires you!

A dark aubergine would look great. Here are some variations.

Plant tons of lavender near the front door--smells wonderful.

Hi Gretabee,
Your front door is and should be special it is the entrance to your home and can make a statement. Have fun with! it I like the purples because it will go nicely with the sage green colors. Good luck!
