Listening to your Front Door

What does your front door say about you and what is inside?
Does it say: Come in! Go away?  Welcome! Don't stop here!

According to Debbie Zimmer, color expert at the Paint Quality Institute,
color has a psychological component through which we often communicate
our moods, feelings, emotions, and personality. One way we do that is
through the paint colors we choose, even on the exterior of our home.
Here is a look at some colorful front doors and what they say about their

GREEN door says healthy and harmonious, the color gives off good
vibes and tells all who enter that your home is a safe haven.
A BLUE door is the most popular door color. Blue suggests that you
see your home as a refuge. Calm, serene, and relaxing; the perfect retreat
from an often harsh and demanding world.

  If your door is BROWN, it can convey warmth and stability, but
darker shades suggest that you like privacy, maybe even to
RED is the color of passion. Regarded as a powerful “punch” color, it welcomes
visitors to a vibrant home. One that says the home within is a place, full of life,
energy, and excitement.
Those who paint the front door BLACK are communicating something entirely
different about their homes. A black front door projects strength,
sophistication, power, and authority, indicating to all who enter or even those
who pass by that the home is a serious place inhabited by a person
of substance.
The color of your front door is limited only by your daring and imagination! 
Now we know....
Ever walk into a room with some purpose in mind, only to completely forget what
that purpose was? Turns out, DOORS themselves are to blame for these strange
memory lapses.
Psychologists at the University of Notre Dame have discovered that passing
through a doorway triggers what's known as an event boundary in the mind,
separating one set of thoughts and memories from the next.
Your brain files away the thoughts you had in the previous room and prepares a
blank slate for the new locale.
It's not aging, it's the damn door! Thank goodness for studies like this.
