Would You Rather...Wednesday

Thanks for all the great feedback on last week's Would You Rather... Jeff has added a letterpress tray side table to his to-do list. We'll share pics soon!

This week's Would You Rather is more of a home decor question. I've always loved different color front doors. Why have a boring ol' white door like everybody else, when you can have a bright blue, yellow or teal green? Or, what about orange?

A couple of years ago, we painted our front door red. It had nothing to do with our future ambitions. We debated between several colors (most of the inside of our home is blue and it's by far our fave color). In the end, we liked the brightness of red (and it goes well with the color of our house).

Little did I know, in Feng Shui, a red front door means “welcome.” Interestingly, in early American tradition, it means the very same thing. In fact, if a home had a red front door, tired travelers who might be traveling by horse and buggy would know the home was a place where they would be welcomed to stop and spend the night or rest.

So...this week's question is this -- whether you've already taken your favorite hue to your front door or are still thinking about taking the plunge, Would You Rather go green? Or blue? Or RDFCo. red? Click here to head on over to our Facebook page and vote (or leave me your thoughts below!)

(And, if you are considering red, here's a couple of my favorite red doors.)
