Our Front Door

This is our front door now.  It needs to be repainted.  We can repaint it the same color of green or go with another color.  I'd like to go with another color if we can figure what color to paint it.  This is where I would like to ask for your help. 

This is the color of the brick on our home.  A mixture of black, brown, tan and a light orange are the colors in the brick. As you can see, light, light grey and a darker grey are the colors of the trim. 

The front porch is sheltered by a partial roof and an overhanging maple tree. In a few weeks I'll plant flowers in reds and pinks all across the front flowerbeds.  I want a front door that pops when one sees it from the street. I've thought about black but that might darken the front porch. I am not a white door person.  Please help me make a decision on a color choice.  Any ideas?

I'm adding a picture of our home from the street so you can get a clear view of the front.  The front porch is where you see the maple tree.  It took me months to decide on a paint color for one of our bedrooms and I don't want to take that long to decide on the front door.  I'd like to get it done by next week if possible.

Your brick looks much like ours. Our front door is a kind of peachy-pink color but not at all pastel. Sorry, I don't remember the name of it. I wish I had a photo of our front door on my blog somewhere but I don't. The color would blend nicely with the color of your tree's leaves and your brick though.

A nice shade of red is always good!

For the door, I say deep wine/burgundy AND even though you did not ask, I would paint the shutters black.

Your house looks nice!

Or Yellow...but red is probably the best since you will have pink and red flowers. But yellow would be so pretty in the fall!
