Great examples Penny! My front door is red and probably closest to the third house's door....maybe that's why I like that one best of all three :)

Sharon - you're absolutely right.  A great accent color can really make a difference.

Dale - one downside to a bright front door, those dings tend to show up!

Diane - so many shades of red being chosen right now....I like the darker reds myself!

Very cool, Penny.  I have noticed a lot of red front doors lately...esp on homes being sold.

Love the pictures of the red doors; certainly shows what an impact they make when looking at the entrance.
