I always laugh when I see dogs that look like their owners. Chihuahuas and models. Pitbulls and bikers. Poodles and rich old women. Of course, there are exceptions to every rule, but sometimes, the choice in a pet is such an unconscious and telling description of who you really are...
The same can be said for your front door. It's the first thing people see when they look at your house. In a way, it's a conjecture of who lives inside. If I see a $5000 stainless steel Neoporte door, I immediately think…modernist with expendable income. A vintage salvaged door…maybe an artist or designer. Quirky holiday lights says festive and fun. And a door with a "No Solicitors" sign? Well, that's a no brainer…curmudgeon who hates puppies and babies, for sure.
What does my front door look like? Absolutely plain and boring. What does your front door say about you?
