First Impressions: What Does Your Front Door Say?

I was running errands the other day and stumbled upon a neighborhood with old, renovated houses.  The very first thing that caught my attention in most of these homes were their front doors.  Most of the doors had funky, vibrant colors - needless to say, they all looked nice, colorful and cheery.  These wonderful doors got me thinking...if you have a front door that requires painting, how do you go about choosing the right color?  After all, the front door has a big responsibility as it is thought to be the "mouth" of our homes, where energy, abundance and opportunities may find us.

On that note, I thought it would be fun to explore symbolisms and beliefs associated with the colors we sometimes choose for our front doors.

Blue:  Blue represents sky, water and abundance.




Yellow: suggests mental clarity, wisdom, confidence and merriment.


Green: is a great choice for the front door since this color represents balance, peace,  and compassion.
[I love the silver hardware on this green door.]



Red:  Last, but definitely one of the most popular colors in doors is red.



We all know that in Feng Shui a red front door means "Welcome."  It is also known that a red door holds symbolism for many faiths/religion.  What I didn't know was that in Scotland, people paint their front door red to indicate they have paid off their mortgage [I guess I'll be painting my front door red in 2037! Yikes!!]

So, what color is my front door?  I have a boring wooden stained door...

  1. Sandra, I love a great door! Our new house has a very BROWN exterior and strangely enough they chose a burgundy door. Yuck! They even went as far as buying a matching burgundy storm door. Jeesh! I think I want to remove the storm door and paint the real door Wythe Blue.

  2. I would love to paint my front door yellow. However, I think my neighbors might think I was crazy! I wish I lived in an older, hip neighborhood where it would be appreciated!

  4. Love all those doors! When we had our house painted last year, we also had them paint the front door a lovely dark turquoise. We are AZ desert dwellers with a stucco & tile townhouse, so it fits perfectly. I'm a new follower visiting from Ally at No Place Like Our Home. Welcome to the blogging world.

  7. I love the green and turquoise doors in your pictures. I've been wanting to paint my front door for some time now. But the homeowner's association has to approve it, ugh! My brick is red and I'm just not sure what color will go best with my house. Any suggestions?

    as you probably did, the web might be a lot more useful than ever before.

  36. Put together a list of qualified, credentialed roofers, plumbers,
    electricians to call in an emergency. The waterproofing underlayment is an
    extra barrier against water leakage. Therefore, when repairs are needed it is worth considering the best contractors to
    carry them out.
