My house currently has black shutters and doors. I am having the house repainted this spring and have started playing around with ideas on any changes. Choice number one for my new front door color was coral. Here is the post.
Another idea I have in mind is to stay with the black but use an ultra high gloss paint. I love Hollandlac Brilliant for front doors. This marine grade paint is so glossy it is reflective like a mirror. It comes in a zillion colors, but in black it would look like black patent leather! My favorite colors are in their Classic Euoropean Collection - if you have been to Europe and marveled at their gorgeous shiny doors, you know what I am referring to. Check out Tulip Red, Coach Green, and Navy Blue - such classics! If you are looking to repaint your front door, check out this paint. It will be the best $ you've ever spent on your home.
Here is my inspiration board for the front door painted in high gloss black with Chinoiserie touches in the top photo. Very formal and elegant. Extra credit for leaving a comment identifying the first door sans Chinoiserie. Update - Great job Brandon!
