What blue or green for a door on a red brick 80s house

There are some glass panes.

We also have a garage door to match.

At the moment it is a slightly queasy green from the old owner, not teal, it's quite a nice colour but I want to freshen it up. I liked the look of too blue (dulux)

I like this door here, but wonder if it might be too dark for an assuming 80s house!

I also like this blue too.

Any other suggestions? And also do you go matt, gloss?

What about cook's blue for a front door and garage door?

It's the lowest one in the middle

I like the first one.

I think the front door can be the one you go a bit mad with anyway. Do think about what colour outdoor light you'll be putting up though and what colour garden planters you'll have.

There's a 1990's house near us with a white upvc door, a white wall lamp and 3 tall white planters with jazzy colour plants all grouped together. It looks great. They've really made the best of a pretty mundane door.

If you have a look at door furniture too, there's so many different finishes now.

You mean the first photo of the bathroom door?

The front door one. I prefer dark colours though, I have manor house grey in my lounge!.

How about this sort of blue?

It's beautiful but I think I want something a bit lighter because it's going on the garage door as well.
What's that paint called?
