Painting front and garage doors and shutters

Yes-we bought this pink house last year- great location, floor plan and price!

we have had a list of things to work on and it’s now FINALLY time to get rid of the pink! All of the bushes in the front yard have been torn out and we will tackle that next.

We are leaning toward paint by Benjamin Moore -Yorktown green ( to me, it seems to be a really grey based green)! We will keep the Pella storm door that is dark brown. Should we paint that the same color as the front door?


1) Yorktown green on the front door and shutters and then the tan/beige color of the house ( like the side of the garage) on the actual garage door.

2). Yorktown green on the front door, shutters, and the Garage door. Too much?

3). Yorktown green on the front door, shutters and the triangle area over the garage door with the garage door being the same tan color as the side of the garage

4). what about painting the shutters the same color as the storm door (the dark Pella brown), the front door Yorktown green, and the garage door the tan color of the house?

5) other suggestions? The house is in a heavily wooded part of the subdivision and was built in 1991.
