  1. Regarding the paint color for a red brick ranch....the trick is to take a brick to the paint store and hold it up to the swatches. I found the perfect red to go with my previous red brick house.
    Now I'm looking for a color for my stone house! Shades of beige, cranberry (Which I hate) and grey. Believe it or not, when I took the sample to the store, the best color was a peachy melon!!!! Not sure I can go that way.

  2. Your examples are seldom helpful because you show them on un-typical houses. How about showing how some of these fancy fix-its would improve a boring, normal ranch house (without the $10,000 worth of landscaping and costly windows and doors hiding its bones).

    1. Amen!!!!

    2. so true. I have never seen a great door color on a red brick ranch house

    3. Amen. I have an old Victorian and I don’t have the money to do all that stuff but I can paint a door.

  3. I really like everything, porch dogs and yellow door of the modern! I especially like the side screen door trim matches! I could live there, if, they left the dogs! When living in CT. I had a Pumpkin Orange door!raf

  4. I like best burgundy

  5. I loved these doors and their color, shows us a way to think outside the box, thank you.

  6. Most of them don't work at all...sorry.

  7. on the right house, yes!
