Whether bright and bold or subtle and subdued, the color of your front door is a statement in itself. And an important one—it's about more than just curb appeal. After all, it's the first thing guests see before you even open the door. Not to mention how often it comes up when giving directions (hello, folks with yellow doors!) Maybe you're devoted to the classics with your glossy black door. Or you've carved out your own Mayberry with a sunny yellow door (adorned with lush hanging baskets and planters, of course.) Maybe you're timeless with patriotic red. Whatever it is, when it comes to front doors, there are endless excellent options. If you're looking for a new one, we've got some ideas here. If you've made your pick, find out just what your front door says about you.

Inside you'll find ginger jars and old family heirlooms. You're grounded, peaceful, and dedicated to your (fixed) principles. But it's not all serious all the time—you make a mean bloody mary.

You're a sucker for classic romantic gestures, and you're quite thoughtful and generous yourself. You may raise a house full of guys, but everybody's pillow has a monogram and drink has a garnish.
