I love the periwinkle, emerald city and daffodil doors the best! I think they would all be great on any home!

I like how you suggest keeping the rest of your house pretty neutral if you are going to do a daring color for the front door. My wife and I are thinking about getting a replacement door installed because ours is getting pretty beat up. I want to add a bit more life to the house, so hopefully my wife will let me paint it something bright and eye catching. http://www.archdesignwd.com
