HGTV host Genevieve Gorder says, “Place anything in front of black and it becomes more beautiful, more dramatic, and more noticeable.”

The team selected Clopay’s Arbor Grove Collection fiberglass front door paintedSherwin-Williams “Witching Hour”  black as the backdrop, and pumped up the surroundings with cheerful, poppy color pillows and a hardwood bench that could easily be warm weather holdovers.

Brass is definitely making a comeback, evidenced by the ornate handleset, hammered style doorbell, and Luna Clear glass pendant porch light the team picked to inject a warm, golden glow into the scene.

We love how the arch detail in the front door panel became the basis for the repeating scroll pattern on the welcome mat, doorbell, table, bench, and house numbers. It ties the entire look together.

Want to extend the glamour to your garage? Clopay’s steel black garage doors coordinate with its painted black front doors.
