Each Respectfully Restored home’s front and back doors are painted the trademark FW Heritage red – red doors into a home means it is a place full of vibrancy, life, positive energy and excitement.
In almost every culture, the color red means “Welcome”. In Feng Shui, a red door draws the chi (positive energy) into the house. In early America, a red door was always a sign of welcome to the passing horse and buggy traveler.
In Catholicism, the red door on a chapel symbolizes the blood of Christ and other martyrs, signifying that the ground beyond the door (inside the church) is holy, and a sanctuary from physical and spiritual evils. And the same goes in Ireland, where a red door wards off ghosts and evil spirits.
