front door color

brookparker11March 18, 2013

the previous owners of our salmon/pink colored brick house did a terrible brown paint job on the wooden front door. looking to repaint but have no idea what would go w/ our brick that would make it look less pink. I love pops of color so i'm looking for something a little different but not crazy. we plan to replace the kick board to match the new hardware we put in and we're currently in the process of replacing almost all of the old overgrown flowerbeds, as well as trimming the trees. I tried to search online for ideas but didn't find any images that excited me. doesn't seem like there's many options for this color brick.

Navy blue or a deep blue.

Blue will pull it toward orange; dark green would pull it farther toward pink. I'd think about deep glossy charcoal or black.

Black would look great.

Inkwell by Sherwin Williams. Our last house was brick and that was what we used.

Our home was historic so we went flat, you may want gloss.

Here is a link that might be useful: possible

Love the idea of charcoal or black. Or maybe even such a dark blue that it almost reads as black? Love your house, btw.

I agree with black.. but it will not make all that brick look less pink.
Gorgeous house!

thanks everyone! LOVE the idea of a charcoal, and love the inkwell color....i had thought of black but worried about it being too stark a contrast, but the charcoal i think would work great. thanks so much for the input and compliments! the house has great bones but hasn't been well cared for, lots of reno's going on, putting me and this house in a love/hate relationship! =)

Let's see:

All paint colors in high gloss!

BM Chrome Green PM-10
BM Kendall Charcoal HC-166

The gray color would work very well with your roof color ....

And our brick here at home is very similar in color and tone to your house -- and our front door is high-gloss black with a large old door knocker and hardware to match our black roof color ....

I'm with black...and I think beefing up the size of the exterior sconces will help too...
