Contemporary Cool

Cool non-traditional choices for a front door are lime and turquoise, says garden designer Carmen Johnston. This contemporary home was designed and photographed by Koch Architects, based in Berkeley, Calif.

Teal Appeal

Teal is a popular choice indoors and out, starting with the front door. The peppy palette is a smart alternative for a homeowner who is tired of a black or taupe door, says Georgia landscape designer Danna Cain of Home & Garden Design. Photo by The Home Depot.

Better Red
