Photo #142 of 365 - The Red Door
I love this Sante Fe style home with its red door leading to a beautiful courtyard! Made me wonder where the tradition started. A red door means “welcome. ” Early American tradition says if a family had a red front door tired travelers traveling by horse and buggy would know that a home was a welcoming place to rest. They would be able to spend the night there.
