What A Red Door Means In Scotland

Months ago I had come across this great post..sent myself a link to the page, marked it with purple flag (meaning urgent follow-up, HA!), then it slid right off my radar. Until this past week, when talk of door-painting suddenly seemed to become a very hot topic.

What Does Your Front Door Say About You is a broad look at some of the colors that front doors are painted, and what they mean. Went back, re-read the post, then trolled around Susan's own site, and it was absolutely delightful.

Between Naps on the Porch is a blog Susan Herin created out of love for all things home: Decorating, tablescapes, recipes-you name it.

I like it for several reasons-it's professional, detailed, creative and tasteful. Like M*****, without the whole smug-thing. And this was before we had even e-connected, she is just as delightful. live and in person!

Visit, enjoy, even bookmark, and may a red door be in your future, too!

Our spaces affect us profoundly...and so many other parts in our life fall into place when our spaces and possessions serve us in the best way they can. But getting there is much more than a pursuit of pleasing aesthetics.

 

Decorating and Staging are different, but much of the skill sets overlap, and each creates unique solutions that considers the needs, goals, resources, expectations, hopes and dreams of each client.

Bettering Westchester, Putnam and lower Fairfield counties since 1981, The Refreshed Home works collaboratively, and brings a thoughtful approach to the creative process. Proud to make a difference, as well as make a living. Offering specialty services such as remote and buyer consults, listing photo/video styling, guided and accompanied shopping, and accessory rental. We get in, get out, and you get on with your life.  Talk to me TODAY about how we can better your space!

Marie ~ I went back to the link and read her post.  My front door is puple and thank goodness it doesn't face northwest...it faces east.  I am still waiting for the opportunities to come aknocking!

Hi Marie--I was holding my breathe as I read down the post--because I want to paint my front door red.  Well, I like the answer; however, I would prefer to get the benefits of a yellow front door.  But yellow is never going to fly here!

Dawn-am very curious about the 'why' purple and northwest doors don;t mix. If I could, I would do purple in a heartbeat ( I live in a coop, and charcaol grey is the standard...uggggg)

Janet-now I am curious-why wouldn;t yellow work in your area?

Marie, my house in Illinois has a red front door...guess I better change that since I don't want a lot of people showing up thinking they can spend the night.  My house here in Alabama has a white front door...I know I better change that color right away :))

Marie, I have a red front door. Interestingly, the description describes me and my home to a tee. That's what I want my home to always be...welcoming.

Marie, if the white door representation is any ones perception of me...they are sorely miss-guided :))

Tammie-from what I've read of yours, I had you pegged as a yellow AND red door!

Marie, I'm just curious...is there a color that says "STAY AWAY", easily agitated owner behind this door?

Nick-you are so funny with this! My personal observation is that orange/peach is kind of an oddly perceived color, as is Grey Poupon gold and weird pinky-browns. Of course, stickers from NRA, or Bull Mastiff Breeders' Association or a quarantine notice will all do the job nicely too :)

Marie, I was just up north and thought I'd take a photo of my front door for your post...gotta do something about the color because of it's hidden meaning.
