To join in with Thursday Doors with Vasco da Frampton, um I mean Norm 2.0, I have two doors “looking out.”
And now – part 2
Have you ever wondered what door colors might suggest?
Here is one author’s take on door color meanings:
In case you cannot read the sheet (it is small – sorry – and I passed the book on – it was an old color and design book) and so here is some of the info:
Door Color Meanings
Black Door = serious, wise, sophisticated
White Door = Protective, fair, strong
Red = Creative, passionate, dynamic
Yellow = happy, welcoming, positive
Orange = Sociable, young, warm
Green = Honest, healthy, calm
Turquoise = Peaceful, meditative, lively
Blue = relaxing, calm, quiet
Purple = restful, spiritual, impulsive
Pink = Lively, fun, caring
I am not sure I agree with all of those meanings, but I can see the associations.
And to wrap up this post, I have some comics:
To see more doors for this week or to join in, go here – where Vasco has some nice color in his doors today – and there is also the blue frog to connect with those who have shared posts.
Jesh (here) added in her take on colors and I thought this was so good that I wanted to add it here – and not just because Jesh is an artist and think on colors probably more than most – but I just really liked how she noted the colors
“orange is that it’s screaming for attention. Yellow I associate with lemons, Purple reminds me or the courage and classy (view) of royalty. Pink is to me watered down red.
And for me – I think the color depends on the “type” door and the neighborhood (if you live in one) and what fits in (or doesn’t fir in – if that is your aim to not fit in – :).
