Red Door

The picture above is of our front door last summer. As you know a few weeks ago I ask all my blogger friends to recommend a new color for it.  Most everyone suggested red. Exactly the color I was thinking. I took the plunge and painted our front door red. We love it!


The color is Red Garnet by Glidden. We put a new foot plate at the bottom and eventually we'd like to get a new door handle.  This color really makes our front door pop.


From Memorial Day til after July 4th I decorate the front porch with red, white and blue. 


In the last week temperatures have been in the low to middle 90's and very humid here in northeastern Oklahoma. I hope this isn't a foretaste of what's to come for the rest of the summer. I hope it's cool where you are and you have a great weekend.

That's a perfect color for the door and will go well with both your current and your Christmas decorations. I hate that humid weather. You will hear me complain even about the dry heat here pretty soon, but that humidity, horrible.--Inger

Love the color. It really does pop!! Wish it was cooler here but I'm in Alabama and the humidity is here to stay for a while.

I love a red door!! I was just reading that in Feng Shui, a red front door means “welcome” and creates good energy. In early American tradition when a family had a red front door tired travelers traveling by horse and buggy would know that a home was a welcoming place to rest, and in Scotland, homeowners would paint their front door red to signify that they had paid off their mortgage. ~~See, you just can't go wrong with a red door!!~~
