:: 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

Tuesday Tips

bold blue accents on a white nuetral base in this cozy family roomLooking to bring more color into your home? Then you’re in the right place because we’ve got 3 quick tips on playing with bright color in your home!

1. Start with the neutral. 

If you want your bright decor to really stand out use a neutral base to let it shine. Avoid creating competition within your decor. There only needs to be one star and that’s the bright color you choose to accent.

2. Be consistent.

Use the color in every space of the home. There’s no need for every room to have large amounts of the color you choose to accent, but dropping little splashes in each room can help carry the color palette throughout the home. It keeps the design consistent and let’s your eye easily flow from one room to the next.

3. Mix it up.

Not all hues are not created equal. Use this to your design advantage by focusing on your primary colors and complimenting them with different shades of the hue. This way you can let your primary colors shine while still filling the room with more decor.
