I have to keep changing and am about to paint my front door deep plum in high gloss,with brass kick plate and knocker

Sounds beautiful Shirley! Loving the matching gold idea ;)

I had my hubby paint our front door red and added gold kick board to match gold door knocker and door handle. Our house has taupe siding and I love it.

Wow! That's our house! So random to see it on Pinterest. I took this photo a year after we moved in. The flowers in the front are still simarly done, while the other plants and bushes are a lot more mature, now.
My front door is a dark turqoise/teal color. My house is a buttery yellow. I love it. My door used to be a red with a bit of fuschia in it. Loved that too.

@Amanda I love the idea of a red door... but I might go with a neutral shutter color to balance out the brightness.

Yellow doors are so great, I'm glad to hear that you have one KeLLy aNN! It's a wonderful trend....

I've had a yellow door for years! and I just can't imagine having any other color.  I love how people are becoming more experimental with colors on their doors
