I like the pop that the mustard colour gives.Or you could consider going soothing with a putty cement colour and add interest and contrast with planters  on either side.Maybe put in a geometrical door light to add interest in place of the single pane glass that's in there now.ErinDoor Opt1: MustardDoor Opt1: MustardDoor Opt2: PuttyDoor Opt2: Putty

Hi Marytz, I would suggest staining your front porch area darker in addition with painting the front door would update your house quite a bit. ImageImage

Hello Marytz,

That's a great colour! I also like warm golds like Benjamin Moore's Cornsilk and Martha Stewart's Cornmeal.

Good luck with the front door!

Thank you Mrs Peacock. I was also thinking to paint it in the yellow shade like a rich yellow mustard. Someone I know suggested to paint it black. I think it could work too. I'm confused. I am not convinced by the coral shades and/or rust colors because of the brick...I'm starting a poll.Vote for : Black or Mustard
