Peppercorn

Peppercorn’s rich, charcoal shade is a color that’s friends with everyone. Whether it’s paired with white-washed brick or wreaths of greenery, this neutral hue makes it easy to coordinate your door with the rest of your home.

Waterscape

Need a little laundry motivation? Just like this Cavapoo, we love the way an airy shade of blue can brighten a room. Waterscape is perfect for bringing a cheerful look to everyday spaces like the laundry room.

Sprout

Instead of using white to contrast a darker exterior, try a pastel to create the same effect. Sprout’s pale shade of green on this Dutch door creates an inviting palette that makes your door a focal point.

Quite Coral

A splash of coral color is a fun way to make your home feel bright and inviting year-round. These double doors in Quite Coral make a bold statement that pairs beautifully with natural accessories like potted greenery and jute rugs.

White Truffle

A hallway full of doors is the perfect place to get creative with color. A soft shade like White Truffle brings a subtle hint of pink that pops against classic neutrals like a crisp white.

  2. Is there a colour called Chinese red? We have a gazebo that has a moon gate and I thought the colour was called this by the designer.

  3. Thinking of painting front door and shutters Peppercorn SW7674, question I have a walnut paneled garage door, would that look good?

    • Sherwin-Williams

      Hello Kathy! Peppercorn is a nice gray/black and using it on your house would fit in with the Modern Farmhouse look that is very popular now. A saturated navy would complement the walnut garage door much better. Any of the navy blues below would really highlight and make your walnut door “pop”. Take a look at:
      Naval SW 6244
      Charcoal Blue SW 2739
      Mineral Gray SW 2740

  6. Hello…we are working on our church parsonage which has white vinyl siding. I like the peppercorn for the shutters. What do you recommend for the front door? Thank you.

  8. We just made a room into an office. The color now is dark teal. Too dark for that room with no windows. Can you suggest a good office color preferably something light. There is windows in double doors but that is it. We love blues

      • Our cottage style house is painted dorian grey on all the lap siding, with dovetail on the shingled accents and black fox trim. Our front door is currently monarch gold. All in satin finish i want to repaint the front door black fox but am considering a semigloss. Help…is that a bad idea?

          Hello Kimberly! In order to make your door “pop”, consider a clean, crisp white, similar to Extra White SW 7006. A white door will also allow you to switch out with dark iron accents or season wreaths.

  9. Does Peppercorn come in matte and gloss finishes?

  10. What would be a good color for a door, if the brick house is painted mossy, sage green color?

    • Sherwin-Williams

      Hello Natalia! A dark chocolate brown would look stunning. Take a look at:
      Rookwood Dark Brown SW 2808
      Plantation Shutters SW 7520
      Sable SW 6083

  11. We just moved into a house that has a front door not made of real wood. It’s probably fiberglass.
    I would really like to paint it peppercorn ,but don’t know if it will adhere. Thoughts?

  12. We live in a brick house that has a light yellow tone. With a deep brown roof. Would peppercorn look good on the front door?

    • Sherwin-Williams

      Hi Deb! We recommend unifying the palette by considering a dark chocolate front door. Take a look at:

      Rookwood Dark Brown SW 2808
      Plantation Shutters SW 7520
      Sable SW 6083

      Sherwin-Williams
  13. I plan on painting my house a sage green. It has a white (not bright!) metal roof, and white trim. What do you suggest for door color?

    • Sherwin-Williams

      Hi Cheri! A dark chocolate brown door would look stunning. Take a look at:

      Plantation Shutters SW 7520
      Sable SW 6083
      Rookwood Dark Brown SW 2808

  14. Unsure of how to get the color consultation. Building new home and trying to narrow down the color choices. Trying to be bold and use blue for garage doors and front door. This is a lake home and want “fun” casual sophistication.

  15. The siding on my house is a pale yellow and I have some darker gray shutters on the windows. My front door is just an off white and I wanted to paint it. If I paint it peppercorn, do I put that same color on the inside of the door or would that make my small living room too dark with wall colors of comfort gray?

    • Sherwin-Williams

      Hi Wanda! You are correct, Peppercorn on the inside would be too dark. We agree that you should paint the inside a color – it adds and unexpected pop of color. A better option would be a color similar to the soft pale yellow of your siding. This color would create a cohesive palette linking outside and inside; this yellow would complement the comfort gray of your living room as well.

  16. We are trying to make our home feel more modern traditional after a full kitchen renovation. Colors don’t seem to go now. Considering painting the fireplace a crisp white, and add an accent wall for a nice pop! Thoughts on modern traditional colors to bring together a kitchen/living room open concept floor plan?

    • Sherwin-Williams

      Hi Kerri! A white fireplace is a beautiful idea and is a quintessential look for a modern traditional look. This white fireplace lends itself to any color family. What other colors are in your space in terms of: flooring, upholstery, window treatments and accessories?
