While I was in Denver over spring break I had the opportunity to meet these two wonderful people, Madison and Mark. They are opening a coffee shop very soon that will serve as a lot more than a place to get DELICIOUS coffee. 

Purple Door Coffee is a nonprofit that exists to provide excellent coffee alongside job training, employment, and community for youth and young adults working to exit life on the streets. This project is meeting a great need in downtown Denver and I am so excited to see it all come to fruition with the grand opening in April. To learn more about the journey of Purple Door Coffee read this storify story or click the photo to get to their official website. 

Please signal boost this, friends! I want every person in or near Denver with a tumblr to know about this and hopefully, start buying their coffee there. 

The Meaning of a Purple Door ☽○☾

As children our mother had a variety of Old Wives tales she would say. Some she may have made up herself…heck the woman has her own language at times, I swear, but that’s what makes her our magnificent Crone. I got curious as to if there was any meaning behind this one, so I did a general search and this is what I found.

A purple door represents wealth, honor and royalty. Having a purple front door lets others know that you are living a prosperous life. It does not necessarily mean that you are wealthy monetarily, but you are rich in your quality of life and well being. You are also honorable.

A purple door can show your open mindedness. The color purple in the practice of feng shui is the only color that you can place in any direction. This shows that purple is a versatile color. The color purple also is not a common front door color depending on where you live. So when you paint your front door purple, you are telling people that you are open minded and versatile to life’s possibilities. You think outside the box.

A purple door can bring a sense of calm. If the shade of purple you choose for your door has some blue hues in it as well, this can bring a sense of calm and have a peaceful affect on your front door space. There is a lot of good energy surrounding the color purple. Think about how you’ll feel if you come home to a front door that is painted purple.
