Red is a frequent choice for homes with a traditional look, fitting with brick, molding and columns painted white. "The old-fashioned, welcoming color for a front door is red," says Bruce Holliday of Landscape Plans Plus.
A hallmark of Southwestern architectural style, this adobe home exterior features Pueblo Revival design with a flat roof and rounded exterior walls. A bright red front door and window frames pop against the brown exterior, giving the home character.
The fire engine red double front doors of this classic home provide a sophisticated contrast to its white and black exterior. Ornamental shrubbery and grasses grow in front of the home in mulched garden beds.
Cape Cod-style architecture, complete with gables, columned porches and wood shingle siding, gives this home a stately, traditional presence. Meanwhile, the red front door turns the entry into a focal point.
