Would like to update and design an updated entry way - exterior

Our house is tan with brown trim. I tried to update with a blue door and blue yard furniture with some green accents but the door sticks out like a sore thumb. I need to find an inexpensive solution and would like to jazz things up a bit.

Not so sure the blue is an improvement. The doors should be solid colors. Dark brown would look rich, but don't paint the little lines different colors. Or paint the blue portion brown and accent the door with blue. Stick with only three colors.

Maitland63--I agree with Anna. I think that a brown base would blend better. That being said, I am never against throwing a bold color at the door, i.e. burgundy, to identify it as the entry. A brown would blend better with the front porch and trim color, too. When budget allows, adding a transom window in the wall area above the door, matching the head height of the adjacent windows, and matching the width of the door and sidelights would look very nice, too, given that you probably have a hanging fixture in the foyer over the stairs (?). Happy Houzzing.
