Answered
This is a 14 yr. old white one story house with black shutters, charcoal roof, (which is designed to have 10 ft' ceilings, so roof is very prominent.). A front porch with faux brick of more of a clay red, black & white. The door is presently a blue red, but want to give it some "pop".

    I think a beautiful deep purple door would be beautiful.

      I never thought of that color. And purple has been a favorite for many years, although I used it in clothing. Perfect color for me, as I'm a cool summer season. Thank you Cindy 768

    For some reason, lime green popped into my head, but with those colors, I think any bright, "sunny" color would work....like a bright (light) turquoise'ish or yellow or bright blue, what color do you like?

      I"m having landscaping done, & have a bright lime green bush in front of the porch railing, which is all ground level. That color really "pops", & have considered using it. You've given me confidence in maybe using it. Thanks Mary.

    Paint it the color of the most dominant brick color - red or reddish clay or burnt orange.

      Thank you. Great idea. The most dominant color is that reddish clay, so I'm thinking that a blue or lime color might work also. I like the idea of burnt orange, but that would have to be a duller color that would go with the rest of the porch furniture. I'm looking for a "pop" of color. Thank you for your interest & ideas.

    If your door faces east or west, you get morning sun and afternoon sun which will ruin any paint that is dark. Keep any paint you choose light and acrylic, water base. Sand thoroughly, prime first, two coats of finish color. Prep is 90 % of the job. Be patient. DO NOT PAINT when it is hot.

    Dark colors will be a disaster. Keep it light, like yellow, maybe a sand color, or white. The sun will destroy your paint job, obviously you know that as you are repainting it. Go pick a very light color there are millions to pick from. Choose carefully. People who suggest dark colors, are not paying attention. Go to a paint store for professional help. People sitting around writing stuff is not much help.
