Are Bright Colors Right for Your Front Door?

According to designers and locals here in the desert-- the answer is YES!
  By focusing your bright color on a special feature of your home you draw the eye there and the results are visually stunning!  Make sure that the trip and the rest of the house don't compete with your bright door by keeping them more neutral.

By splashing your front door with Red, Orange, Turquoise, Yellow or even Purple!  Here are some examples from!

Orange front doors are HOT right now!  Especially contrasted with cool grays.

Lime Green can create a focal point and it pairs well with modern and mid-century homes really well!

Kathy, I think it really depends on where you are.  Here in Maryland red, black and green doors are popular over white.

I love the bright colored front doors!  Ours is a glass door... but it is flanked with bright blue!

I am a believer in  having an eye catching colored door. My favorites in your pictures were the lime green door and the blue on white door. Great post!
