But the more I look at our non-descript door, the more I realize that it needs a makeover! A fresh coat of paint would do wonders to make our big, empty porch look a little more welcoming (well, that and getting some patio furniture or big planters would help too.)
So the question is, of course, what hue to choose?? My first instinct is red, even though some may say that's overdone. It would definitely inject more personality than this yawn-inducing beige does. And even though we have reddish brick, I think red would still be a nice pop against the white trim of the doorway.
My pondering led me to to the all-knowing Google, where I searched "front door colors." I found a lot of articles on front door feng shui. According to this one and this one, our north-facing front door should be either black (no), white (no), or blue (maybe??). And red is apparently recommended for south-facing doors. Ok, so maybe I'll break those feng shui rules...
I also found this article at HouseBeautiful.com, and I think these colors have some potential:
Benjamin Moore Moroccan Red 1309
Benjamin Moore Evening Sky 833
Pratt & Lambert Beeswax 11-6
The more I think about it, the more I might be digging this deep plum... but would it just look black on our shaded porch?
C2 Paint Wicked 6446
Then I found these inspiration pics on Google images. Don't these doors all look very welcoming?
We probably won't get around to any painting until the weather warms up (which will hopefully be SOON), but that gives me time to think about it. So here's where you come in... considering the rest of the exterior, what color do you think would look best on our front door? Maybe it's not even one I've mentioned. I know you've all got good taste, so lemme hear it!
