My house is Mauve color. It also has reddish brick and cream color brick. What is a good color to paint the front door.

My style is victorian.

I Have always loved Mauve & Purple. They're in the same family - one compliments the other .

Pictures would help. How about a sage green?

I can see it in either a nice green or a cream.The cream bcuz it would pop the door from all the pink/reddish colors, the green will compliment all others.

As long as we're on the subject - why do some people choose red doors? Is it to direct people to the proper door or what?

The red door may have its origins in China. Chinese believe red is a lucky color and often paint their front doors red.

Yellow. Definitely yellow.

Not SCREAMING yellow, but a definite, obvious, "this-is-a-yellow-door-and-I-love-it" Yellow. you know, choose a yellow color that's somewhere between classic bold yellow, and the cream color already on your house...

yeah, definitely yellow. :)

I would say black or very dark gray. Feng shui would go for red.
