    Love that! I did a blog on this awhile back and I’m with you I think the front door needs to different in style and color so that it and only it becomes the focal! My favorite is the pink,it’s so unexpected and is so pretty next to the starkness of everything else.

    • Peggy Pardo says:

      Hi Dawna! I agree, pink is very unexpected for a front door; that’s what makes it so much fun! That door has a cool design to it, as well.

    I love this. I’m looking for a new color for my front door. The last time I did a front door makeover, I painted my address on the center of the door. You can see it: http://katydiddys.blogspot.com/2010/05/front-door-makeover.html

      You did a fabulous job! A few little tweaks made such a big difference. Your house color is neutral, so your options are pretty open. Does your HOA have any restrictions?

    I love vibrant doors. I have had a red door, which was charming. The bold colors are so fun.

  10. Anastasia says:

    I love the red door….do you know what brand and color it is? Thank you!

    • Peggy Pardo says:

      Red is very popular! That particular shade is from a company in Canada. It’s called Earthenware 3E1-8 by Beauti-Tone Paints and is available through Home Hardware. If you don’t live in Canada, you could probably request a color chip and then have it colored matched. Here’s their website http://www.homehardware.ca/en/index.htm

    My house is white with a dark green trim.. I love the red door, but will it be too Christmasy looking?

    • Peggy Pardo says:

      It really depends on how much green there is, Patty and the shade of green. If it’s just on the trim and it’s a very deep green, you could have a red door without it looking like the holidays year round provided it’s the right red. I’d go with a color closer to a brick red than a true red. If you were to change the trim color, you’d have more options in red for your door.:)

      • Patty says:

        Thank you so much, I’m leaning more towards a darker cranberry color, and if anything I’ll make my husband reprint the trim.. Works for me!!
