Front Entries

Front entries into a house....

It's the first thing that you see from the road verge. It conveys a lot about somebody and their taste. What do you like? Modern, Shabby chic, Federation, Hamptons... A home needs to reflect who you are. It needs to say 'welcome home'; 'welcome back'; 'come sit for a while'. Some say 'don't enter'; 'don't stay long'. The more I looked the more variety of styles I found. Some were rather drab, some said 'look at me'; some showed some fun, a sense of mirth, whilst others show preciseness, minimalism. What ever you choose as an entrance, make sure it conveys who you are and what you want it to say to those who'll come to visit.

What do you want your entrance to say about you?

And just a thought for you, if you choose a neutral colour for your exterior walls, like maybe white, go out there with your front door colour, you can always change it.  It's a lot cheaper to change the colour of your front door than what it is to change the colour of the whole exterior of your house.  Just sayin'.
