Hey guys, wow the first weeks of Summer are flying by! Between my son's travel baseball and my daughter's diving team...we've been non stop.
Well I'm very excited to be a contributor for another article in the Charlotte Observer tomorrow in their Home Design section! And the subject is - Front Door Curb Appeal! So today I thought I'd share our front door refresh!
The easiest way to make a front entrance more welcoming is by giving your front door a fresh coat of paint. Thankfully our black painted door cleaned up nice so that will be another project for another year ;)
I did however plant new plants in our urns. I used sweet potato vine and red petunias. However this vine grows so fast, it's taken over and now the flowers are hardly visible. What I need are colorful flowers that are tall and that will be visible above the vine - so this week-end I'm on the hunt for those.
A few months ago we added new carriage style lights to our brick colonial home (in three separate entrances) and are loving this classic look. I also hung a very large American flag by our front door. I like how the large scale of the flag adds balance and proportion to our tall portico. And of course I love supporting our Troops! #USA #Proud
Because flags and door mats fade over time, to save money I usually purchase these at either Lowe's or even Target and switch them out every year or two. So with just a few new outdoor accessories our front entrance is now warm and welcoming for our family, friends and neighbors!
