I need your design help!

In early spring, Michael and I made a list of the things we'd like to do around the house. At the top of the list was improving our curb appeal. We got a new retaining wall built on our parkway (the area between the sidewalk and the street) and had it planted with shade-loving perennials:

Then, I used my mad gardening skills to plant a window box:

And a pot for our front porch:

Next up is replacing our ugly door. I had the door guy out yesterday, and the process seems relatively painless, but we need to pick the color.Here is where I need your help. Michael wants a really nice wood door. Most of the really nice houses in our neighborhood have gorgeous wood doors. And I love them. But most of those houses are built of darker brick and don't have green windows. Since we are stuck with our green windows (and our green porch, though that is paint-able), I think we need to embrace the green.

I did my best to mock up the two door options. The green looks slightly off, here, but I saw an actual sample yesterday, and it does match the windows perfectly. So... what say you Internet? Green door or wood door?
