Inland by Sherwin Williams

Inland is a medium-to-dark sage green that creates a natural, earthy vibe. Sage greens are muted and offer a more subdued option than a forest green; they also pair beautifully with cream colors if you want to pair a sage door with a cream trim.

Peacock Feather by Behr

Peacock Feather is a bright teal that’s as showy and eye-catching as its namesake. Put it next to red brick and it will really pop!

Mole’s Breath by Farrow & Ball

Mole’s Breath is a medium-toned stormy gray that sits on the warmer side of the gray spectrum. This gray has enough body to partner red brick and still stand out, making it a great pick for a front door color.  

Final Thoughts

Red brick can come in a lot of different shades of red and orange, making it seem tricky to coordinate with front door colors. But if you keep it simple with neutrals like black, cream, or navy, or choose catchy cool shades like teal, hunter green, and sage, you’ll create a front door focal point with a lot of curb appeal. Happy painting!
