Help, Need Front Door Paint Color Expert

Posted by avoca (My Page) on

Hello, our home is a mid-tone olive (Duron/Renwick Green)with black stutters and off white trim. We are having a difficult time selecting an accent color for our front door/trim and sidelights. Home is very long with plenty on windows. Entrance door has large pane of glass centered. Total dimension including sidelights is 7 feet. We think the entire entrance should be the same color feeling that if we paint the side lights, it will become too busy. Any help would be much appreciated. thanks!

RE: Help, Need Front Door Paint Color Expert

Of course a picture speaks a 1000 words and it is hard to offer suggestions with out one but my first thought was to continue the trim from the windows to the entry which is white and paint the door red. I know you said you're afraid that it will look too busy, but I'm thinking it will tie all of the areas together. A warm brick(ish) red would be nice as would a more bright red. Both look lovely with colors in the green family.
