Roses are Red-- Violets are Blue-- What Front Door Color Screams You?

Let’s face it---we are all a little exhausted of this wintry weather and extreme cold and ready to move on to bigger, bolder, BRIGHTER things.  Our houses at this time are feeling rather small, drab and even blah.  But with spring right around the corner surely you have had plenty of time to think about how to spice things up.

Spring is the time to make change---give your home a facelift.  First things first, why not tackle the front door.  Doing so will even land you out of the house and soaking up the sun and milder temperatures.

The front door serves as a focal point to the exterior fa├žade of your home---it is where people begin developing their first impressions of what is to come.  The front door serves as the passage and egress with which energy, prosperity, and opportunities begin and also end.  With that said what color screams you?

Cultures all over the world associate meanings with various colors.  Have a look:

Blue



Blue is believed to bring serenity, tranquility, positive liveliness, and abundance.

Yellow

Now what are you waiting for...be inspired :) With all of the color options and their symbolism you really cant go wrong.

Happy Home.  Happy Life.
