:: Ravishing Red Front Doors ::

Tuesday Tips

Bright red door opens to a beauitful coastal entryway and a happy pupThe front door is one of the first things seen when you look at a home. It can add curb appeal and style to the house. A red front door, however, offers more than just curb appeal and style. Not only does the hue immediately grab the eye and draw you into the home, but it could signify more than just a style choice.

During American Colonial and Civil War times the red door was a symbol of safety. It meant that it was a safe place to stay and rest during travel and times of war.

In Feng Shui, a red front door means ‘welcome’ and red is the color of prosperity and abundance. Use the color of your front door to bring positive energy to yourself and your guests.

Another meaning behind a red painted front door is the Scottish tradition of a paid off mortgage. It’s a fun, semi-subtle way of saying you officially own your home and you’re debt free.

Colors sometimes carry meanings and so do objects. It’s a fun way to say something without actually saying it. If you’ve got free time you should look up more color and object meanings that have to with the home
