So, you love the idea of having a purple front door? Me too! Adding this splash of color to your home has some beautiful meaning behind it, too. The color purple can represent a lot of things, including creativity, wealth, and honor!
I just recently bought a cape-cod style 1 1/2 story home. I’ve been excited to paint a purple front door since I first pulled up, way before I made an offer. My mind spun with ideas. The house needs TLC, love, personality. The front door needs to make a statement, but also shouldn’t offend anyone… or be too weird to fit into the neighborhood.
I’ve read that purple front doors can promote good health, and success in your career. I’m sold. Not only is a purple front door unique, but I love the message behind it. The exact color I chose is “Purple Energy” — a new Clark & Kensington color found at Ace Hardware. They just recently had a marketing campaign surrounding it (bottom of post).
In many cultures, purple is associated with royalty and wealth. It is a spiritual color, often worn by pastors and priests. Some people believe that purple fosters creativity. In a room, purple feels regal and majestic.

Here are some other little-known representations of purple:

A purple front door can show your open mindedness. The color purple in the practice of feng shui is the only color that you can place in any direction. This shows that purple is a versatile color.

A purple front door can bring a sense of calm. If the shade of purple you choose for your door has some blue hues in it as well, this can bring a sense of calm and have a peaceful affect on your front door space.
