We've just painted our house white with brown (expresso) trim around the windows and the fascia. We're going to put Mediterrean travertine on the patio floor by the front door, and I'm trying to decide if I should paint the door brown, or experiment with something exciting like red or blue or turquoise?

I would do a pop of color to compliment the neutral colors (white and espresso).

if you paint your door a dark color, use solar reflective paint. We sell it specifically for doors......
