Beautiful colors for a fabulous entry door

Having a beautifully painted front door is an entrée into many things. It speaks to the personality of the homeowner inside, it accents the architecture of your home, and it creates great curb appeal. While there are many options for front doors, the style of your home should be a guide. 

When you're selling, having a color that is exciting and appealing is critical. 

Spring is a great time to update your entry. You can leave the color for years or change them seasonally;  it's quite a quick update and rather inexpensive to get just a quart of paint.  Don't forget the primer if you're using deep colors over existing dark tones. 

Here are some of my favorite colors on traditional and modern front doors. 

Red is very standard. Orange is spectacular. This is Benjamin Moore "Festive Orange" 

A rich green is timeless this one is "Lafayette Green" by Benjamin Moore.

It's not often that one thinks of a deep color for the front door, but with white trim, Wrought iron railings, and a brick face, this deep purple-black is beautiful. It is Benjamin Moore "Nightshade".

And here we are the classic red door which is always spectacular. This one has a little hint of blue. 
Another Benjamin Moore favorites with brass fittings and white trim. The Color is Blushing Red"

With an all white front home, try a warm plum colored door. It offsets the black Iron in the light fixtures and the jet black shutters. This one is "Summer Plum" by Benjamin Moore

Rustic exteriors look fabulous with door colors that blend a bit with the cedar shake and wood trim the gives the home it's warm and woodsy appeal. This one is "Purple Lotus" by Benjamin Moore.
