What color should I paint my front door? This is the question we’ve asked ourselves time and again, no matter the house. This time around it’s a particularly exciting decision, because the house in question is (drumroll, please…) our new office! Yep, team CS in on the move and it’s about time. We’ve drastically outgrown Camille’s house over the past few years as our inventory of props, computers, and team members continues to grow! We broke ground on remodeling a 100-year old Austin bungalow right before the holidays, and our contractor team is busy transforming the space into the office of our dreams. The biggest exterior decision? Looking through the best front door paint colors to find our perfect statement shade. Most of our research led us to believe that you can pull of just about ANY color on a front door as long as the rest of the house is fairly neutral. Right now we’re leaning towards dusty pink, but that dark teal is pretty sexy, too. Which color is your favorite?

    Fire engine red or even the pink or the jade….I love them all, but unfortunately I can only paint mine on the inside….but these color gave me plenty to think about and then some.

    I love colourful front doors – the coral and dusty pink options are my favourite! My current door is a deep brown (boring, I know) but I was originally thinking to do a deep purple. Unfortunately fibreglass doors only come in limited colours.

    I was sold on the dusty pink or the bright peach …. but then you had to thrown in that gorgeous teal.
    Such an exciting project — can’t wait to see how you transform the house!

    Ooooh I love them all but I’m particularly partial to the dark blue, dark teal or the red. Our doors are white (boring, but classic) but I’ve repeatedly told my husband that in our future home the doors will be red!

    I love to use the fire engine read on my front door, but actually on the inside due to HOA regulations, but what manufacturer produces this color paint?
