Doorway to my heart - Oh Pinteresting Wednesday

One thing I want to do when my Sean and I own our first home is have a bright and colorful front door. Why? Because to me it means this home is warm, it is inviting and it welcomes family, friends and strangers a like. I love entertaining friends at my home, as you can tell from the baked goods I make each week and I can't think of a better way to say welcome to our home than with a bright, colorful and inviting looking front door.
Doors can invite people in or they can shut the world out, they can allow neighbors to be friends or neighbors to never meet each other. I refuse to allow the latter to happen, and I want to make strangers into friends and always welcome them to my welcome with a friendly door, which is a symbol of welcoming them into my heart and my life.
Here are my pins for the week and of course linking this up over at The Vintage Apple for Oh Pinteresting Wednesday.

I love brightly painted front doors! Py parents have double front doors and they are painted bright red, also all the service doors in the garage are painted the same bright red! I just love it!

I so agree! We are going to be painting our house this fall, and right now our door is the same color as the shutters (a blue gray)...since we will be sticking with the grays and whites, I am seriously considering yellow for the door!

Krystal said...

a pink door would be SO fun!

Sarah said...

Awww Meg! This post just made my Wednesday. I had never thought about front doors this way, but now I definitely want to hop on the colorful door bandwagon! I love the blue and pink doors best, I think. They are all so pretty and inviting though!

Rod and Alex - aka: "Rolex" said...

I totally agree with you regarding bright/interesting doors! It's so important to have a door that fits with your family's personality! It's the first thing you and your guests will see when they come into your home and it just sets the tone!
Beautiful! Thanks for the photos!

I love bright front doors. I'd love to have an orange or yellow one!

Lauren said...

I love red doors especially. That was the very first thing we did when we moved into our house - painted the door red. None of that white/cream business for us :) It just gives it that warm and friendly feeling.

I love colorful doors! A friend of mine has a Welcome sticker on hers that I have been looking everywhere for. Love when it looks inviting!

Rebekah said...

I love those doors. They make such a statement! There's a house I run by in the morning and it's a double front door in bright red. It always makes me smile!

Camylla Leonardi said...

I'm totally with you on this one!! your door is the first thing a person sees! so of course it needs to look inviting!!

kira said...

I love the orange door up next to the grey. We just painted our guest room those colors.

The second door (the big red one) is definitely my favorite though!

Those are so fun! I lived in France for a year and a half and it was so fun to look at all the colorful doors!!

Jennifer @ Delightfully Noted said...

I absolutely love your analogy about bright doors and it feeling welcoming. Our's is just plain white which is odd because I am definatly a girl who loves her colors! I guess I've never committed to a paint color for the front door because I change my mind ever day!

I've always wanted a pretty purple front door. When I finally own a home, I'm busting out the paint!

amy grace said...

I LOVE a bright, colorful front door!! I wonder myself what color to paint ours - whenever we buy a house that is. I'm sure the color of the house, front yard, landscape, etc. will help decide!

Ashley said...

I'm loving all of your adorable doors! Such a cute pinning theme. Bright and fun front doors are too cute!!

dani said...

I have an obsession with red doors! Our HOA won't let us paint! :(

Nevertheless, LOVING this particular Oh Pinteresting Wednesday! :)
