Need advice for a front door color

Hi guys,
I was hoping to get some ideas for a front door color. The house is a lighter brown with a slight reddish tint to it and has darker brown trim. The color of the door is about the same color as the house. The door is damaged and we plan on buying a new one so maybe it is time to try a different color.
Thanks in advance for any suggestions!
Here is a photo of the front of the house. Name:  01_photos-360.jpg

Hey Roman,
Visit a few paint stores that carry the major brands, they usually have color charts showing a combination of compatible color schemes. They do all the work for you, all you have to do is decide which one you want/like. Then again you can visit some of the major manufacture’s web sites and they have software that you can use on line or purchase that will allow you to bring up a picture of an exterior elevation and then enter colors from their color selections for the siding and trim of your own home. You can then experiment with door colors, and see what your home will look like with your choices. Try Benjamin Moore, Pittsburgh Paints, Sherwin-Williams, just to list a few. Have fun.
