Red for "da ji da li" 大吉大利
Took us about three seconds to decide that we want the front door red.
The purpose was to make our nest look lively and young, and red has always been a popular color.
There were burgundy and bright red, we went for the bright. I personally think the red matches perfect with the lintel.
Some say it looks like a huge red envelope used for Chinese New Year, but wouldn't it be nice if your could see this door that reminds you of the most celebrated festival in Chinese culture everyday?
The satisfying result of our front door is the work of this "handsome bird" and our amazing artist friend Luka.
