Design Dare: A Brightly Painted Front Door?

Friends of ours painted the front door of their coach house an audacious shade of lime green and it looked fantastic. Glossy, cheerful, and completely unexpected - just the right note to welcome guests in from a gray Chicago winter and right in step during the joyous summer. It made us wonder, if this looks so great, why don't more people go for a brightly painted front door. Is it really THAT much of a design dare?
