I think all of these examples are just gorgeous...... but I can't use. I just primed my front door outside with an expensive primer and it is white and I am sticking to the white. I have two too many colors now...... that I am not loving for a front door. I want to smile when I come home and face my door. I LOVE it white. I have a one story, Florida cottage that is a very pale yellow painted, concrete block with the darkest green trim on the house (the wood trim that is the vaulted part of the sides and shutters. I just did not like the idea of a dark door...... and then I have light brick trim under every window and I added a brick red metal roof (LOVE, LOVE, LOVE my metal roof), and white soffits and fascia (I did not know they would put white instead of the brick red). Then the new windows that were put in before I purchased this house are dark bronze. See my dilemma? Anyway, the white primer paint made my choice. I know this is not the fad and all that, but hey I usually do my own thing anyway! lol

@Shea Joy - I think turquoise sounds lovely with peach (painted?) brick, but to match the brick correctly (and be as bright as you'd like but not too bright), you may need to go through a lot of paint samples. It's definitely worth it, though! Make sure you love the color before you paint the whole door. Have fun testing!
