I think my biggest concern is that I have a two car garage door that I also plan on painting to match the door. So while it would be easy to get by with a door painted a color that's not quite right, I don't think I could ignore a huge eyesore that would be the street-facing garage door.
I've searched yellow houses endlessly online to try to find the right color and shade, but didn't have any a-ha moments. But while driving the other day I passed an old tavern that I have been by so many times before. The Rider Tavern in Charlton, MA is painted a really pretty light yellow, and it has these great minty green doors that stand-out just enough, without being overwhelming.
I think I may have found my color. It would be pretty on a front door, and I don't think it would be to overpowering on a garage door. Plus it's not plain old white or black. Here's a picture of the tavern, as well as some great front door inspirations:
|Here it is, the Rider Tavern in Charlton, MA.|
|I love this door, and the color is very similar.|
|Purple is my favorite color!|
|This one reminds me of the beach.|
|Red doors are welcoming.|
|This is pretty also, the yellow is just a little off.|
|I love this home, it is light yellow with a dark metal roof, just like mine! It's driving me nuts that I can't see what color the front door is!|
