Its in the family room, leading to the backyard screened porch. (so its an exterior door)

Should we leave it as is (so it blends in as much possible)? Or maybe paint it charcoal to match the mantle, or bone to match the marble, or even burgundy to match the drapes? Seems pretty ugly as is....Would love your thoughts.

I think the charcoal to match the mantle would work just fine.

Thanks Abbyjean, Should the trim around the door also be the charcoal? or left as is, matching the wall?

Start out by painting just the door and see if it looks complete that way.

I think I'd leave it as is. If painted, I think it might compete with the focal point of the fireplace.

I too would leave the door alone.

I would leave the door painted as is. My question is why is the tv right by the front door? I would rather see a console table and mirror there. What is to the right of the fireplace? Maybe a rearrangement would work best too? I love the windows and the light filled room.

thanks everyone. Tennisanyone, its actually a backdoor leading onto a screened porch. I know its a bit awkward, but we put the tv there, so that we can watch tv and look out the window at the same time..

I get it. The arrangement bothered me more then the door color. I know you didn't ask. Sorry if I insulted you.

Leave it exactly as it is. it should blend in o the wall. Don't make it a focal point.

I think it should be left so it blends in.

I love a painted contrasting door. But not in this case. The focal point (fireplace) is to close.
