The dramatic color of red. Bold and vibrant, the color red holds dramatic variation within its various shades and hues. And when painted in thick coats of glossy appeal on the doorways to our interiors? Stunning. Alas, it is the deep blue-red lipstick hue that my attention seeks. Whether you view the dramatic crimson red shade as one of elegance and sophistication or the cherry red vibrancy and energetic delight, the painted red hue on the exterior front door certainly deserves our focus.

The painted red door is linked with many associations and connotations over the course of history. Yet perhaps the painted coat of bright red hue coating the front door that relayed the old early American tradition of a sign of “welcome” still presents the same impact from the curbside today. Of note, history states that travelers journeying by horse drawn carriage would know a home was a welcome place to rest by the coating of the painted red front door. Perhaps, the red front door not only stands out as striking curb appeal, but still boldly sends the fearless, energetic greeting of “Welcome”. Alas, a visual appreciation of this brilliant hued painted door

The brilliant and bold red painted exterior door is a classic, indeed…
