Extra points to who knows where that reference came from. Or maybe it’s from several places but I’m thinking of someone in particular. Anyway, how glorious it is to have a shiny new front door! We went from this:
I couldn’t be more enamored with the color – Red Delicious from Glidden for those wondering. The name is even catchy! We also replaced our storm door with a full glass one. It quite noticeable from the street, which I like.
From a Feng Shui perspective, the front door is the “mouth of chi,” and where opportunities find you. It’s a pretty vital part of any house. And it’s very auspicious to have it a different color from the house and the trim. Red is a good color for luck, but whatever you choose, make it one you love. I’ve always wanted a red front door so this was a no-brainer for me. This is the second one I’ve had; my pre-married house also had a red front door.
It’s all dressed up for the holidays too with a nice wreath. Would you like a close up? Okay, here you go!
All in all, I think this front door will definitely be inviting the opportunities in. It’s getting some attention already.
As for me, I can’t help but smile when I am sitting at the stop light across from the house as I come home. I really feel like it’s welcoming me. That is my wish for you: for your front door to do the same. Whether it be a nice color or a cute wreath, do something that inspires you!
Oh, and for those of you still stuck on the opening sentence – I was thinking of Stacy from What Not to Wear. She often exclaims that when people show off their new look.
