Porch & door color

I need help deciding on colors for this front porch & door. It is currently maroon (door) and green (porch). My darling husband does NOT want any of it white. Can someone help!?

the door is not showing up - maybe it needs to be brighter and lighter. I'm unsure of colors on my monitor. is your siding tan? are the shutters black? can the white around the base of house be painted? post these answers to help those who want to suggest.

How about a musty blue? In the same tone as the beige cladding,or perhaps a bit darker?

I too live in a box and I would do some landscaping to hide the white skirting. Pick some plants with color and then see what looks best for your front door and porch.

Thank y'all so much for your suggestions. The house is a tan/beige with black shutters. I am interested in landscaping but that's a entirely diff post. (Suggestions welcome though). I live in Louisiana the skirting will have to stay on this pier and beam home. Please keep the comments going!

Look for a paint for your skirting. Home Depot has paint for every kind of material. I would paint the door a light blue. Blue and brown look well together. This would bring the door out. The porch I would paint dark brown but make sure the hues stay the same as the siding. Go get some paint chips and see which looks best. If you need an inexpensive planting get good old azaleas. I lived in the SC Lowcountry for most of my life so I know what you go through in Louisiana with the weather. I would really get some paint chips and compare then to the colors you have to work with.
