Tone on Tone
DIY blogger Brittany Bailey (prettyhandygirl.com) knows a thing or two about home improvement, but for this project she didn’t have to lift a finger. She inherited this purple front door from the previous owners of her home and decided to keep it as is. The color, unique to Bailey’s neighborhood, pops against white trim and also picks up the color in the mosaic tile on the brick porch.

You might think coral pink would be a tough color to pull off, but it looks right at home paired with a pale cream brick. Photographer and licensed contractor Brittany Bailey loves unique front door colors, which is why she photographed this pinkish-orange door, which is a good companion for any neutral siding color — witness the recent fall fashion trend of salmon paired with olive green.
