There is a lot of symbolism and meaning attributed to door colours by different cultures. Some cultures believe that the door is the mouth to the home. This entry point is where opportunities find us.
Listen to what the fine folks at Houzz.com had to say about door colours:
“Throughout history, blue has often represented sky, water and abundance. Blue is also considered a great Feng Shui color. If you want your home’s curb appeal to suggest a feeling of abundance and prosperity, consider painting your front door a beautiful blue
Yellow is a color that evokes mental clarity, perception, understanding, wisdom, confidence, curiosity, humor and merriment. Wow, I’d like some of that coming into my home…wouldn’t you?
How about a green door? Green is always a great choice for the front door since it’s a color that is said to represent balance, peace, compassion, growth, renewal, and harmony.
Surprisingly, purple is a pretty popular color for front doors. It’s symbolizes energy and is thought to invite many opportunities into your home.
Some folks even believe you can improve your opportunities…or whatever aspect of your life that relates to the doors direction, or the direction it faces, simply by painting your front door purple. Whether you’re hoping for a better career or better health, some say purple will help.
There is only one exception with purple, and that is the northwest-facing front door. Better to paint this door gold, white, silver, or gray.
In Feng Shui, a red front door means “welcome.” Interestingly, in early American tradition, it meant the very same thing. In fact, if a home had a red front door, tired travelers who might be traveling by horse and buggy would know the home was a place where they would be welcomed to stop and spend the night or rest.”
