What color is your front door?

Right now the door at our potential new house (I will not remove potential until after we close :)) is a sort of red. Not red red though, like burgundy red. I just don't think I'm feeling it. 

I've been looking to pinterest for inspiration. 

The potential house is white with black shutters (which can obviously be changed if I wanted to) and a black roof. I really want the door to pop but not be crazy. It just wouldn't fit with the feel of the house (it was built in the 30s) if I did anything too crazy. 

These are some of the doors I really liked:

I think I would prefer something darker that would hold up better and not show dirt as much. I like the idea of a blue or green door, but I'm not sure if the options I've seen are too bright or not. I'm thinking it might be better to go with a deeper green or blue. But then will it look almost black?

I'm probably over thinking this but at least it's a fun thing to think about!

What color is your front door? What color have you always wanted to paint it but your scared to?

Our door is the ugly, old dark hunter-ish green color. I hate it. I want to paint our door BRIGHT orange! =) Like our wedding color, not like Clemson. Just to be clear, haha.

I think you should go with lime green! :)
