Doors- glossy black or cheery color?

Ive never lived with a glossy black door, they are very London glamorous/ swanky and preppy, and of course practical – but i wonder if in person they are a bit foreboding? Certainly a cheery color greeting you is more inviting?

One thought on “Doors- glossy black or cheery color?”

  1. i had a glossy black door for 10 years on my grey greek revival with white trim and it looked great. last year i painted it ben moore's razzle dazzle pink and now it looks fabulous!
