The vibrant and brilliant orange door. Painted the color of carrots, pumpkins and saffron the orange exterior door provides unexpected delight. The exterior door, layered in a hue that ranges in the color spectrum between red and yellow, the color hue orange provides a bright statement of visual interest and distinction. The color orange painted on a front door seems to illuminate the world with pure, extraordinary color. An energetic and uplifting color that perhaps brings us exhilaration and bliss.

Of course, an acknowledgement of the color’s history…
The color orange existed in Europe before the late 15th century but remained nameless. The color hue was simply referred to as “yellow-red”. Who knew? It is stated that both Spanish and Portuguese merchants brought the first orange trees to Europe from Asia during the late 15th and early 16th century and the new name was given of “naranga” which would eventually become referred to as “orange” in English. Of interest, in parts of Germany, the Netherlands, and Russia, the orange fruit was and is still said to be called the “Chinese Apple”. Again, who knew? For certain, the vibrant, brilliant orange and stunning red-orange hue demands attention. The brilliant & bold earthy hue of orange certainly shares the attention of red. Bold and bright, indeed.

A visual appreciation of the statement color of orange painted on the doors that lead to our interior worlds…

Consider the bold impact of the orange hued painted exterior door. Perhaps unexpected when found coating the door to the interior world, this color hue deserves our appreciation. Although the color orange itself is associated with the Autumn season, I state the case for this brilliant hue throughout the year. No matter the season, the painted hue of orange never fails to delight. Alas, perhaps our appreciation is greater during the season of the pumpkin, but with seasonless style the painted orange door will endure. Bright & vivid, indeed…
