Red is the colour of assertiveness, luck and prosperity. Many Chinese like to paint their front doors red, to invite these qualities into their lives.
Red is also quite simply a wonderful, vibrant colour to have in one’s home. Some people like painting a feature wall red. Some like whole rooms in that colour, while others choose to use red as an accent colour.
Red is dramatic. Red is romantic. Red is hard to miss. Red certainly makes a statement.
Here are just some of my favourite red doors, that I’ve found on Pinterest and pinned to my board “Doors”. All credit and copyright belong to the various original photographers, that goes without saying.
