Recently, our neighborhood walks have taken us beyond our normal routes and left us dazzled by the explosion of color we’ve discovered on front doors near and far. Bravo to those who use bold strokes of blue, yellow, orange and green to make a lasting first impression. Here are a few of our favorite sightings. — Meda Kessler
A reddish-orange door contrasts beautifully with brick painted a deep charcoal and the white trim, patio furniture and mailbox.
Emerald green is a fresh choice, especially when paired with porch plants and white brick.
A bold chartreuse trimmed in white makes a statement against brick painted a light blue-gray.
Vibrant orange is a popular accent color for midcentury homes like this one, painted a pale blue with stacked stone accents.
Classic turquoise is freshly modern contrasted with white trim and dark blue-gray siding.
Navy blue adds depth to brick painted in a light gray. Gold painted door decor stands out nicely on the dark shade.
Sunny yellow shines against a medium gray background with white trim. Bold accents include a black mailbox and house numbers.
A lively shade of blue paired with a butter yellow door and white trim garners attention in a good way.
