Try a rich, bold, mid-tone blue for bungalows, craftsman-style homes, and cottages. While these homes are historically associated with earth tones like brown and green, their strong lines and deep porches can stand up to cobalt’s zing.

There’s a meme that goes, “You can’t please everyone; you’re not an avocado.” So what happens when you paint your white door an avocado green? We’re betting you’ll be the gathering place of the neighborhood.

Got a traditional brick home? Paint the front door black. This refined tone will give your home instant curb appeal — plus an attractive, stately look.
