Hello Smartfisher, thanks for your question. I do not know the name the color was chosen by the homeowner, we did the gardens.

That door is original to the house, built in the 1930's.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Erin Lang Norris added this to Enduring Design: The Picket Fence
Although the term "picket" refers to something that comes to a point, I think that this particular fence provides the same feeling as a picket fence, even though the tips are more blunt. Its long rows of vertical strips give it a similar vibe.
Dutch colonial is another classic style that has been popular in America for almost a century. While these three are all houses and are typical American styles, I hope you'll share all kinds of homes and that you international readers will tell us about your childhood homes, too!Your turn: Please upload a scan of your childhood home and tell us about it!
6. Keep your front yard tidy. There is no need to get into a competition with neighbors over who has the greenest lawn, but keeping up a basic level of tidiness will be appreciated by all. Put your garbage and recycling cans back promptly after they have been collected, keep grass mowed and weeds pulled, and try to avoid storing too many belongings on your porch or in the driveway.7. Follow local parking etiquette. Always try to park in front of your own house if possible, and never block neighbors' driveways. In some neighborhoods with narrow streets, it is the custom for everyone to park on only one side — even if it's not an official rule, it is best to follow suit.
Steven Corley Randel, Architect added this to Roots of Style: Dutch Colonial Homes Settle on the Gambrel Roof
Moving up in size, this New York–area Dutch colonial revival maintains the inviting human scale inherent in this style. In true colonial revival fashion, windows are grouped into sets and sunrooms flank the lower levels. Significant here is the flare to the lowest eave line. This detail surfaced in original colonial designs; it was likely brought directly from the Netherlands. Notice how the shape of the front porch follows the fan light above the entrance door with sidelights and contrasts appropriately with the other linear elements.
