The doors in St. Johns Newfoundland, Canada are very colorful. The reason for this is quite obvious to me.
Located in Atlantic, Canada, Newfoundland has many months of cold, weather and gray days. Nevertheless locals are trying to brighten their environment with bright, warm colors to keep their spirit high. Red is a favorite color, being the warmest in the spectrum, and not only here, but all over Atlantic Canada.
Newfoundlanders are generally very nice and friendly people, and this trait is shown on the way they live too. They paint their walls, doors and windows and they ornate as much as they can their living spaces.
St. Johns Newfoundland is one of the most colorful places I have ever seen. Here are some interesting doors I’ve seen on the Battery Hill, the oldest historic part of the city. Some are new or restored, some need some work:
Here below you can see two collage-posters of some colorful doors and windows in St. John’s, Newfoundland. I made uploaded them to my Fine Art America gallery, and they are available as art prints:

Wow, gotta love those primary colors. Makes a great poster.
Very colorful indeed and it is great to see them all in a poster! Good story as well about the colors. I can see how people would welcome the warmth from their brightly painted houses. Although how would we explain this street in Devon on the southwest coast of England. Quite pleasant for most of the year.
