Mellow Yellow

This door has a sleek modern look thanks to a glass and wood frame door made of Douglas fir and painted a spunky shade of yellow. The neutral gray fiber cement siding and the warm tones of the wood siding provide the perfect showcase for this main entrance. www.vergead.com

Pretty Pine

A strong, bold color for your front door can take center stage without upstaging the exterior color palette. The graphite siding and gunmetal eaves are stylish touches that complement the tequila-lime door. awarchitect.com

Get Natural

You don't have to paint your door a bold color to achieve a striking effect. Sometimes the color of natural wood or stain can bring out the brilliant artistry behind a door, like this 4-inch-thick mahogany beauty accented with bronze hardware. www.nfcarchitect.com

Think Outside the Red Box

Red is a popular traditional color for front doors but can be overused. Keep things fresh with details like vertical glass inserts.  www.vergead.com

Orange Crush

San Francisco's colorful, idiosyncratic vibe is reflected in this painted wood door with matching glass panels set off against a white door frame and light yellow siding.  huoarchitects.com

Up in This Grill

A custom-made door featuring aluminum banding grillwork and stainless fasteners sets off this intense red door frame. http://susanwallace.net/

Everything Old Is New Again

Orange You Glad to See Me?

Whimsical Web

Mix and Match
