Would You Paint This Door?

Hi, everyone! Thought I'd provide links to two pics of the front of my little cottage. I've only been in here a few months, but my initial thought to paint the front door is now shaky. I was leaning towards some deep red or maybe navy/black, but the more I live with this the more the stain looks appropriate. Maybe it's the stained porch floor.

The rockers, BTW, were left by the PO. They are black.

If it looks as good as it does in the photos, no, I wouldn't paint the door.

I think it looks nice as-is too. I would paint the columns white though. To me, that's part of the trimwork and should be the same.

I would paint it RED :) To me, Red is a HAPPY color for a front door and says: WELCOME!!

I recently painted my front door F&B Picture Gallery Red and just love it. It is not a bright red, but muted and very pretty. You can order a sample pot ~ I had about 5 samples on the door at one time ~ sometimes it's hard to choose!!!
