The History of Red
In Feng Shui, a red front door means “welcome.” As the color draws you in, it also adds interest and defines a space and point of entry.
In ancient Egypt, the color red was honored and associated with life, health, and victory. The Egyptians would color themselves with red ochre during celebrations; women using red ochre and henna to redden their cheeks and lips, color their hair and paint their nails.
Greek, Roman, and Asian cultures have used red since the 12th century to signify love, power, dominance, and stature.
There’s No Place Like a “Staged” Home!
And let’s not forget about wearing red shoes! Dorothy from the “Wizard of Oz” had a few fellows following her lead in those powerful and sparkly ruby red slippers, as she led them down the yellow brick road. It’s no wonder why the Wicked Witch was so keen on possessing them!
