Red Door in Savannah Georgia

I love this picture my husband took in downtown Savannah the other day.  Red doors make me happy.  They are meant to be welcoming, which probably explains why I usually want to walk through them.

In Feng Shui the front door is the mouth of chi — this is where energy enters the home and a red door welcomes good energy.  But red doors are not just for the Chinese.

In American culture we also paint doors red.  In our horse and buggy days a red door signified a welcoming place for weary travelers to spend the night.

In the land of my ancestors — the Scottish paint their front doors red to advertise that they are now mortgage free.

I’m a little sad that the door to my apartment is brown.  I don’t even want to know what that represents, but it does make me happy to think of this little red door downtown.
