I don’t know about you, but I have never seen a red door that I didn’t like.
Suffice it to say, I find red doors quite fascinating, inviting and majestic—for some reason. What is it about red doors that make it so luxurious? I did a little digging and here’s what I’ve found…
In Chinese tradition, red is the color of luck and happiness.
In Feng Shui and in early American tradition, a red front door means “welcome”.
In Scotland, a red front door means the mortgage of the home has been paid off.
Furthermore, red is often used by luxury brands because it signifies power, passion, excitement and courage. For example:
- Christian Louboutin and YSL fought for the rights to the iconic red sole and the former won.
- Luxury car companies Porsche, Maserati, Bugatti and Ferrari are have red in their logos and company colors.
- Elizabeth Arden’s red door has been a Fifth Avenue landmark since 1910. The red door is so iconic, in the 1930s it was said that “there are only three American names that are known in every single corner of the globe: Singer sewing machines, Coca Cola, and Elizabeth Arden.”
Warm and welcoming, rich and splendid—these sure sound like the kind of ambiance Dello Mano has. Have you experienced the luxury that’s on the other side of our red door?
