“Your front door serves as your home’s first impression, offering a sneak peek of the style and comfort within. Going bold with your door’s paint selection is a wonderful way to add personalized character without the commitment of a full exterior remodel. Although any lively color is sure to amp up curb appeal, we lean towards classics like Farrow & Ball’s Arsenic, a vibrant mint that pairs nicely with a navy façade. For a cheerful twist on a more historic hue, try Farrow & Ball Radicchio – it’s sophisticated yet youthful and sure to impress the neighbors.” – Marie Flanigan

“A bright front door adds so much character and curb appeal and draws your eye to the door, which is the first thing people notice. A bright front door will add a lot of character to your home, and if you choose to paint it, you can do so without a lot of cost. It’s like getting a whole face lift for the price of a tube of lipstick.” – Geryl Miller
