design: colorful doors

about a block away from my grandparents' vacation house there is a grey house with a beautiful purple door.  when i was younger, i always knew we were almost at our destination when i saw that purple door & would start to get really excited when we passed it.  consequently, i now have a love of funky, brightly colored front doors.  i think they are not only fun but also practical -- i mean, who would ever drive past the "house withthe purple door" & forget it's yours?! 
just take a look at some examples of brightly colored doors...
