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!

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.

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.

Shay

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.

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

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!!

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

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.

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”.
