    I would try a cream color instead of white. You already have enough color with the green trim going on.

    Would you consider maybe painting the front door a few shades darker than the house? And paint an off white around the trim? If you are not sure maybe u could go to the local hardware shop and get those small tester pots of paint. Paint the colour on a test piece of paper and hold up to the door to see if you like. Saves painting the whole door over.

    I am a contrast girl, I would make it pop. I think I'd paint it black.

    Deep red. It will add a color pop without competing with the green trim. You could also do a gel stain in a rich wood color.

    My light yellow house with sage green trim has a bright turquoise front door, not a dark turquoise, but not pastel, either, just kind of bright med. turquoise. I like it so well that I painted my porch bench the same color and am about to do the same to an old metal cupboard around the corner of the porch that I use as a potting bench. Purple flowers look especially nice with this color combo, so I plant lots of deep purple petunias in my sage window boxes and have lilac bushes near the front steps. Plenty of old-fashioned hollyhocks (especially rose colored ones) round out the look and will actually grow here in Wyoming (high altitude, bad soil, no water, constant wind, long, cold winters... but, hey, it's home!)

    Be sure to first check with your HOA...I have to REPAINT my beautiful yellow door (originally white) because they didn't like it. :-(

    I think painting your door a dark green would look amazing.
