This story comes from our neighbors in Missouri, but discussion of paint color is locationally universal: “What does your front door say about you?” asked the St. Louis Post-Dispatch earlier this month. 


Interesting question, if you’re into home design. (I am, for obvious reasons.) 


Apparently — at least according to Nathan Fischer, Ace Hardware’s national design expert — your front door color is an expression of your story, and your personal style. It can be your sensible suit, or your unique feathered hat, so to speak. 


So if you buy the idea, the color you choose for your front door can say a whole lot about you. If you don’t buy the idea, well… let’s talk about it anyway, because I think it’s fun.


Below, I’ve picked out some homes on the market in the Middle Tennessee area now, with doors that, according to the experts tapped for the Post-Dispatch story, will say very specific things about the people who buy them:
