My New Red Door

A white brick ranch home with a red door is a classic choice for an exterior design.

All of our exterior projects including the most recent ones (LINK) including our roof and cupola have been to expand on the charm of our traditional cottage ranch home.  I had been toying around with the idea of painting our door for awhile.  The porch is small and recessed and the black door did not draw your eye in. Instead, it got lost in a dark hole.

I love the idea of pastel colors like light blue, sage green or pink but our house with its new black roof, shutters, and fountain seemed to be crying out for classic red! 

We chose Benjamin Moore Heritage Red (LINK) because of it’s rich bold tone.

Two coats was all it needed!

    Amy- your home is just beautiful! And you give us such inspiration. Thank you!! Your door looks great by the way. My door is currently white- but we need to replace it anyway and plan to paint a color when we do. My home is blue and white and has shutters also. Still trying to decide on a color for door. Such a fun great idea though. You picked right I think with red for your house and feel. Thanks again for your great ideas.
