Ask A Color Expert – Front Door Accent

This is an image of a home exterior painted in Classic Silver. The main focus is the accent door painted in Royal Gold M280-4. The home has surrounding greenery with different plants.

An inquiry came in from a reader named James, who is in search of some accent colors for his exterior front door. Front doors can be  vibrant and playful, being the perfect exterior accent choice when it comes to color that will stand out for trendy curb appeal.
Hello Color Experts! I just got done painting my house in Classic Silver PPU18-11 and trim is Palais White GR-W18. I am in search of a couple ideas to paint my front door that will serve as an accent. I do not want it to be your average brown color. Please advise!

Thank you for your interest in BEHR Colors! We will be more than happy to provide you with some bold accent colors suggestions for your front door.
Grays are super versatile and pair beautifully with just about any other color, from muted neutrals to rich jewel tones to vivid brights.  If you’d like to make a statement with your front door consider one of these colors: Royal Gold M280-4, Caribe PPU13-01,or Spiced Wine PPU1-13.

This image shows paint drops of exterior door accent options in Royal Gold, Caribe and Spiced Wine.

Colorfully yours,

      We actually have a paint visualizer on our website and we have exterior houses that you can virtually paint on. Would that be helpful?

    Hi Deanna,

    Our house is painted with the Marquee Colour Blueprint (S-470-5) and I am looking for natural colour ideas to paint our new front exterior door. I an leaning towards a warm yellow/gold tone or natural brown or grey tones. Can you recommend some door colours?
