That "Welcome" from your Front Door!
Did you know your front door talks about you to everyone who passes by? Whether you have a single family home or an apartment your front door is the first impression you have to offer a newcomer. So what are you doing about it?
OUTSIDE THE DOOR:
Even if you live in an apartment, you can have a painted urn in black, marigold yellow or ivy green, filled with a long lasting shrub surrounded by annuals of color spilling over the sides. Or even place one on either side of the door to help draw the eye to the front door and create a natural colorful frame. This creates a resort like environment which is fresh and inviting!
There is NO law that states you have to have a white, black or dark green door. Picture a pale blue front door to give that pastel cottagey feel,
Or how about a purple door? Why
not? As easily as this can be changed, after all, its just paint, tailor the front door to your particular exterior to separate you from the rest on the block! Be original and set your personality ahead of just another "mindset".
Personally, I like the yellow and grey combination. Nothing like a dazzling lemon yellow door on a home painted charcoal grey. And give it a great knocker, one that stands out from the pack!
Dare to be different, did someone say pumpkin????
