    I think the question is do you like the color of your front door before anyone make suggestions.

    Well you have a lot of brown going on here, roof, dark brick and front door from what I can see....If I may, I would strongly suggest you get some nice large pots on either side of your front door to add a nice crisp green to brighten up the abundant brown and biege siding....I would stain the ramp and railings a nice honey brown, not too dark ...as for the front door it really needs a more vibrant shade to be noticed and stand out from all the low key neutrals ......I would suggest you get some paint samples and tape them to the front door and leave them up for several days to see them in light and shadow before you decide on a color...also look at internet decor sites to get some idea of a color scheme you are comfortable with....hope some of my random thoughts make some sense for you....Good Luck!!!

    I would stain the wood to go with the brick. And I would paint the front door a light blue, bright green or yellow. Then put some colorful pots of flowers and plants to pull your eye toward the door. Let that color lead you into the house. I just stained a shed in black solid stain and it actually blends into the background as well.

    I would stain the ramp a dark walnut & paint the door a Deep Red. A red door makes it inviting & the walnut stain covers any imperfections in the wood.

    Would paint the window trim brown, the ramp a light brown, the door robin egg blue. Would replace settee with chair with colourful cushion and bistro table. Would get a tall plant (real or artificial) for the corner. Maybe replace existing wall art with something more substantial.

    The darker color of the door picks up the darker tones in your brick. I would use something close to that for the ramp and perhaps a touch lighter for the rails.

    I would also match the brick wall and paint the door yellow.
