Need help with front and garage door colors
September 2, 2013
We just moved in to our first home. Its a beige-white brick. I want to paint the front and garage door so that there is more pop. My personal design syle is casual ecletic but I like a hint of rustic. What do you think?

This is a house that really wants to look dignified and upscale. Perhaps you should keep the doors neutral but employ contrast -- like a slate gray/graphite look ... then do it up big with what this house really calls for, imo: landscaping! Add lots of color there. It's a lovely house. Good luck. I wonder what it would cost you to get a garage door window panel that would be more in scale with the rest of the house. What do you think?

Lovely home, congrats. I always like to keep garage doors out of the focal point so I think the color now is neutral and blends well so your eye doesn't focus on it. Your front entrance is very nice with the hefty columns and I would paint the door a bold color like cranberry. Do I see a hint of green in the roof, you could use a shade of green on the door and get lots of colorful plants in the landscaping.

Beautiful home - congratulations! I agree that keeping the garage door neutral is best, you do not want that to be the focal point. You could do almost any color for the front door, what colors do you like? Something else you could consider is doing a subtle paint color on the coins on the corners of the house and garage. That would add some visual interest to the architecture.
