This lemon-yellow hue just oozes happiness, but the contrasting black hardware and accessories keep things from getting too sweet. Potted plants are a great way to perk up your stoop, but either go big or go for multiples to keep them from looking bitty.
Airy windowpanes let light flood in and give off a sense of welcoming openness. The retro-cool green door, sculptural pots and plants, and striped mat tell visitors this home is fun and kid-friendly but still design conscious.
A bold yet classic color—Benjamin Moore’s Heritage Red, to be exact—in a high-gloss finish took this home’s Victorian-era door from staid to stunning. The gilt stencil detail on the glass completes the look.
A front door can be a lovely way to pay homage to the home’s locale. Here an inlaid chevron panel detail, duck’s-egg blue color, and ship-lantern sconces all lend a seaside New England feel.
Proving that there are endless ways to stave off dull-door syndrome, this front door gets a dose of personality in the form of flanking nonfunctioning shutter panels, a large-scale lantern, and a playful pooch.
Lush, gorgeous greenery can increase the curb appeal of any home, but that doesn’t mean your front door has to play second fiddle. There’s something about plum that makes it feel whimsical and daring but historical and classic at the same time.
This door is definitive proof that sometimes you’re just a can of paint away from a stop-and-gawk front door. A high-impact hue can sometimes be a cause for restraint in other areas. Case in point: this door’s industrial lights and simple yet stylized house numbers.
