Our front door is painted the color of the house on the outside, and the small edge that goes with it. The rest is the color of the interior door.

Hi Allison - The fun part about design is that there is rarely one correct answer for a situation.

Looking at your images, you might consider painting the interior of the front door black while the other side remains red. There has been a lot of discussion on black doors on Houzz lately: Ideabook: 11 Reasons to Paint Your Interior Doors Black

If you choose to paint your door two colors, I'd have only the red on the exterior. The edge of the door should match whatever you use for the interior side. Just make sure you or your painter uses tape to get a beautiful, clean line on the edge.

Best of luck!
