    Hello. The front door is the first impression of your home to guests and why not make that a bold impression. Red is a bold color for a front door. My favorite red is Chinese red in a high laquer finish. In the Chinese culture red means good fortune. As far as the trin, pull an existing tone from the brick as your trim color! Good luck!

    Hi Elizabeth, I would go with a light color for your trim. Is there any way you could sand your front door? I would love to see a stained front door on your beautiful home. That would give you a timeless look and a classy first impression on everyone who comes into your home. Best of luck to you.

    I would go with white trim and a red door. I would remove the old shrubs and put in new on both sides. Then I would plant red and white flowers. Congratulations on your new home. May you have many happy healthy years there.

    I think plum would look nice on the door and the trim. It goes well with earth tones and contrasts with greens of the landscape. Plum goes well with sage also if you wanted do something different on the trim. Very nice house you have there...have fun!

    Because the colors of your house is warm tones I would not do white trim, I would choose a soft cream to brighten it up. paint the door the same color for broghtness, or a burnt orange for a pop of color: )

    I definitely agree with the bright front door, it will make it more noticeable, right now it just sinks into the shady porch. I also agree with replacing the shrubs, go with something the same height right now as the shorter ones to the left of the front door. The taller ones take away from the great bay window.

    You might consider a light sand or tan trim with a pop of color on the door. I do like the color of red as suggested. Perhaps not a Chinese Red lacquer, but red.
