    I'd paint the doors and all the shuttears a nice country red.

    maybe paint the door a dark to medium rose color. A double pink knockout rose bush would accent the color nicely in the sunny spot of your foundation/porch. Also maybe some nice ornamental grasses on either sides of the steps would look nice too. "morning light" or "gracillima" maiden grass, then maybe an "annabelle" hydranga on the other side of the porch, depending on how much sun/shade that spot gets. Good luck!

    I'd paint it Ochre to pop. Not my colors but good together and will make the porch color blend like it was done on purpose.

    I'd pain it turquoise or teal and leave the shutters the same if you want something that pops that is.

    I would paint the door red as well. Add some red accents like red in cushions on chairs. Some landscaping & sidewalk would also spruce things up. Just a bit of advice from a designer friend of mine. I painted my shop red, she advised to get 4 or 5 red paint color cards & hold them up in the sun, shade, against other colors I was using. It really helped me pick the right shade of red. Anyway, have fun with it. Remember it is paint & you can change it.

     try playing with the color coral. It works well with greens and browns and gives a soft pop of color.

    What might be throwing you off is the additional color being brought in by the stained wood columns and the gable. Because of this I would not bring in yet another color. A rule of thumb in using color is 60% dominant color which is your house, 30% secondary color which is the shutters, and finally 10% accent color which is your trim (even thought it's white). A couple things I would recommend are 1) spray paint your porch furniture white to brighten the area as they blend in too much right now with the shutters. 2) Remove the furniture and then see what color in your existing palette needs to be used to bring balance to the front of your home remembering the 60/30/10 rule. My guess it will be white or your house color. Good luck and share a photo of your final decision - would love to see it!

    My siding is the same color. I did a yellow door then put two medium tall plants stands on either side and put yellow petunia baskets in it! Great poos of color. Neighbors said it's beautiful! RFH7

    I took my bleached out shutters off and painted my door an dark turquoise color. My siding and and brick is just about like yours.
