Help us sell our house: what color to re-paint the door?


The casa.

This is our house. In the coming weeks, we'll be putting it on the market. The house is a one-story ranch with yellow brick, a grey roof and black shutters... and its front door needs a new coat of paint. 

I'm perplexed about what color to repaint the door. 

What do you guys think? Do you have a suggestion we haven't thought of?

well, i love love love red doors. but it's kind of hard for me to picture what it would look like with the yellowish brick. maybe awesome? black might be kinda cool, too.

See, it's perplexing! I THINK I like red but am not sure I can commit. I bet it will end up black or white... I'd kind of love black. Help!

I kind of adore the green. But I'm always a sucker for green and blue... I might be biased.

I think that the red would look good, but with the color of your house I'd go with black...

Just when black was edging out, Lilu throws in a curveball. Thanks, ladies!

Ok HERE it is.........Black would be elegant......specially since you have that black iron work which by the way reminds me of New Orleans :)
If you want to go wild and want to grab attantion go with a Chatreuse color door.........maybe a little more into the green then the yellow, but stay away from red, since you have yellow brick......
WHITE is boring.......take it from somebody that had a white door for 20 years.
That is my opinion and I will stick to it :)
