While it’s always fun to liven up your perspective views with a pop of color, sometimes there is significance in message your aesthetic communicates.  In Scotland a red door signifies that your home mortgage has been paid off while in Feng Shui the red door indicates a warm “Welcome”.    Other colors might indicate a personal strength: 

Light Blue – hopeful and positive

Deep Blue – grounded, peaceful and dedicated to your principles

Yellow – your door matches your sunny disposition

Pink – classic romantic

I’m not sure what my stained front door communicates other than my appreciation for tradition, for now that’s what I’m most comfortable with.  However, when it’s time to paint my door red I just may do it.
