A robin's-egg hue brings attention to this beautiful Craftsman-style door. Take note of the creatively placed address numbers . . . fun. Bringing the color of the door into the flowers in the planters on either side of the door is also brilliant . . . it marries everything together.
A cool hue of blue is always welcoming and found in a lot of coast homes. Once again, take note of the creative placement of the address numbers.
Rust, a color I have on my own front door, is a warming and very welcoming color. If your questioning wether to use a bold red, this could be a good compromise.
A golden shad of yellow works very well with traditional architecture. Even the strictest of preservation boards in New England will probably give thumbs up to a colonial golden yellow hue.
A bold red door is a welcoming and fun choice for traditional home styles. I think the port hole window on this door is way beyond fun!
