What does your front door say?
I don’t know about you, but I agonized and fretted quite a bit over this decision when I last had my home painted. I knew whatever color I chose, I’d be living with it for a long time. In the end, I chose a bold color and so far, I still love it. :-)
Did you know many cultures associate rather complex meanings to the colors we choose for our home, especially the color we choose to paint our front door? The front door is thought to be the “mouth” of the home, the entry point where energy, abundance and opportunities may find us. Wow...that’s a pretty big responsibility to hang on a front door!
I thought it would be fun to explore some of the symbolism and beliefs associated with the colors we sometimes choose for our front doors.
In Scotland, homeowners paint their front door red to signify they have paid off their mortgage.
So, what is your favorite color for a front door? Attach a photo of your door with your comment, if you can. I'd love to see the color you chose!
