Red or black?

It seems a little insignificant but it is seriously the dilemma I've been having. I'm usually not so indecisive. I knewI had to have sidelites. I didn't even blink when it came to selecting the color of the siding. But I can't nail down the color of the door.

Here is my internal dialogue:
Black is traditional and provides contrast. Black is safe. But it will show dirt, scratches and marks easily.

Red is different. A gray house with a red screams New England. But it would have to be the right red. There are so many reds to choose from, it could easily go all wrong.

And then what do you paint and what do you simply leave white. Do you only paint the door? Or do you paint the trim, the sidelites and the grills?

I was so excited for the house to look complete from the road and now I can't picture what I wanted it to look like.

Help!!! Look at the picture and let me know what you think?

(Ignore the old, broken down, off-centered porch...that is being removed...someday!)
