    I would go with the dark brown color...it's more neutral than the other colors in the brick.

      My last pay check was $9500 working 12 hours a week online. My sisters friend has been averaging 15k for months now and she works about 20 hours a week. I can't believe how easy it was once I tried it out. Read more this site... Good luck... http://ow.ly/hUrf30fuUaO

    Am thinking of changing our front door also. We have roof tiles in a dark rosy tone not unlike some of your bricks. Have settled on a Behr Paint called Dutchess Dawn (available at Home Depot). Our door faces south and was looking for something light to be more reflective of the afternoon sun. The front of the house has a covered patio 8' deep so it's only about half the year that the sun reaches the door fully. If you have a spare brick or two take them to your paint supplier and see which matches you prefer. We must have brought home two dozen paint sample cards before we could both agree on one color. You might want to lean towards the darker tones which would look nice with the white walls. The shopping is the fun part!

    I think black painted doors but be sure to hang matching wreaths on each door with colors from the bricks.

    Blue Green would contrast nicely with your brick!

    My home is partly white siding and partly brick - not in the same configuration you have but similar. I painted my doors & shutters black and used red and white flowers in the summer. I loved that look. A few years ago we had our house painted and I wanted a change. We had the doors, shutters & trim painted sort of a deep colonial blue with the white siding and brick. Now for flowers, I love pink, purple with a few splashes of white. I love the variation that we have now. What you decide is, of course, up to you. I just thought I'd give you my experience for a reference. Good luck and enjoy your new doors once they are painted. :)

    I would choose the medium brown for a conservative look. If you want lighter whimsy look, choose one of the lighter pinks. (I think the darkest brown would be too dull unless you have dark roof shingles.)

    I would go black to match the shutters, or maybe a gray to go with the grout in the brick.

    Cindy . . Your door is beautiful . . it's the bricks that need to be brought to life. Some people may like paint, but stain would be a much better addition. Clean your bricks and let dry thoroughly. Use at least 4 different shades of stain and apply with a sponge brush. Be careful not to get any on the cement between them. Let dry thoroughly. Use one of the spray-on sealants and cover the whole project. You will want to mask of the surrounding wall for this last step. Shine up your front door with a light coat of marine varnish after you've cleaned it up. Stand back and enjoy your handy-work.

    I have similar color brick and painted my door a colonial blue. I love it and have gotten many compliments on it.

    If you go with Black, use High Gloss.
    You could go with a Traditional Soft White in High Gloss.
    I would update the door knobs, lock and kick plate to a brushed silver.
    Besides paint, you can also upgrade the look by eliminating the curtains on the doors and use treatment on the glass for semi privacy if needed; Or if you want curtains get fabric with a simple design.
    You could also paint the inside trim on your windows black to match the shutters which will give a more finished look to the front of your home as well.

    Ps. I also like a nice deep green color. Unless you paint your brick, stay away from pinks, yellow and light blues. Go deep blue if you use blue to avoid an uneven contrast compared to the shutters.

    Definitely black would tie in with brick and shutters... dramatic..

    Look at a color wheel and see if anything speaks to you. Previous suggestions are excellent.

    I have that same darned brick! I was thinking of painting the brick but like the stain idea I want my door to be a plum color because my house is gray and charcoal!
