Color Advice for Exterior Doors

After Superstorm Sandy, my very damaged home had to be reconstructed and redecorated. My normal creativity is overloaded! Can someone suggest a front door color for a Colonial Cream (pale yellow) house with white trim and a pewter colored hip roof? The same will apply to my nearby shed. Also, the house has two new French Patio doors that also need to be painted. Color for them???


I would be happy to help you with color suggestions for your doors. With your existing color scheme, you have several options. You'll want to sample any colors you're considering, as color can vary due to lighting and nearby surface colors.

For your French doors, you can either consider matching them to the white trim, or using the color you've chosen for the front door if you'd like to add color to the patio, as well. You could also consider using lighter shade of your front door color, for the patio doors.

Here are suggestions to consider for your front door:

Benjamin Moore Hale Navy HC-154

Match of ColorLife Green Bank 1954D

Match of General Paint Prairie Wheat CLC 1242D

Benjamin Moore Caponata AF-650

Benjamin Moore Maple Leaf Red

Benjamin Moore Whipple Blue HC-152

I hope this helps,

Thank you, Diana! I think I like the Navy. Never thought about blue. My previous door was red so the change should be nice :). I'm going to try it!
