    I love all those doors! I recently painted my front door bright teal: http://azulhome.com/2013/08/07/paint-your-front-door/

    That pink door is in Marblehead. I have a shot of it here…http://instagram.com/p/bv57-BCJyh/. Is it a store? You have it listed as Belle Maison? It’s beautiful.

  3. Love a bright front door! Ours is bright blue!

  4. Katie says:

    Really love that peachy red door! I painted mine a bluish glossy black this past Sprint to contrast with my aqua-gray exterior. Still love it!

  5. Jen says:

    These are wonderful. In Provincetown there is a dark pink door in a shingle house that I love, land also a pumpkin orange one in a brown house. They really stand out in my memories of all the charming houses.

  6. Rose says:

    I adore all of these. Most of these homes see like a variation of grey, white, blue or charcoal. However, my dutch colonial is an very muted orangey brick. Any suggestions? Please do not say orange. I would love to do all the window casings and the upper level wood a different color too.

  7. Any suggestions for a colorful front door on a red brick house? Would love to paint ours but struggling with the brick.

  8. Lauren@lovelyLark. We have the same problem. Our house is mid century modern red brick and we are going to use Hague Blue by Farrow and Ball.

  9. Shay says:

    For brick I’d also suggest various blue shades; red brick darker blue, orange brick brighter blue.

    I love just about all of these doors. Lots of ideas for when we replace our front door.

    I really love all the doors featured but natural brick is difficult. I’m not a big fan of blue so consider what you paint the trim around the door and pick a color that will contrast nicely with that. My husband and I live in a brick row home in Philadelphia. We painted our trim in a grey-green and our front door in a rich, bright coral. It definitely stands out against the brick and we’ve had nothing but positive comments from the neighbors.

  11. Leah Bridge says:

    I have the largest coloured door fetish! Even have a Pinterest board purely dedicated to them. Thanks for feeding my obsession ;) x

  12. Ashley says:

    Thanks for this post! My husband wants to paint our front door (it’s black) but is not too adventurous. I’m trying to persuade him to go out on a limb and do something outrageous. We have the problem of living in a very very cookie cutter split level: red brick below yellow siding. So boring!! What can you do with that?! Any suggestions are totally welcome!!

  13. Scooter says:

    Love these doors. Just painted mine bright green! Looks awesome.

  14. Knucklehead says:

    Love those doors! Recently went out of my way to drive past a gray house with a pink door, and was so disappointed to find it repainted (black). These are cute and an inspiration.

  15. dalescarden says:

    I think our doors represent who we are and how much money we have in our pocket, but sometimes, the door theles us that “Hey, come in”.

  16. Dale says:

    I so miss my red door…. especially now that I’ve seen all these wonderful ones!

  17. Carey Bishop says:

    Love these doors. I want to go bold with my two from doors. My house is a med grey with white trim and black shutters. I was thinking either the yellow or orange door. What is the brand and color of each of these please?

  18. Russ Coons says:

    I actually like all the doors. It would be hard to chose. I wanted black and sand edges then stain with brown. Now I really am drawn to the colbalt blue and also the green.

  19. Katie says:

    Any idea what paint is used on the orange door? Love it!

  20. Mary Clifford says:

    Love your taste! Could you tell me the color of the shutters on the butter siding with the Whythe Blue door. They look charcoal but I am not for sure. Found it on wp-content/uploads/2013/08/17rachel.jpg
