Hi Everyone! I have a serious case of front door envy this time of year. I blame it on our trip to Dublin and a recent trip to Charleston. The doors in Dublin and Charleston are legendary with pops of color that give us a window into what is behind those front doors. Speaking of Charleston, my son is interested in a college in this amazing city so I may get my front door envy fix over four years.
Our front door is eighteen years old and gets the bulk of afternoon sun in the mile high city. During the winter, a constant breeze blows under the front door as a result of the temperature fluctuations during the day. This past winter, I resorted to shoving bubble wrap between the bottom of the door and the threshold.
Fast forward to this month with new windows scheduled to be installed in two weeks. All of sudden, a new door just made it to the top of the project list. I stretched the front door’s lifecycle when I painted over the stained door here. That was such a fun project. I didn’t paint the side windows, but I thought about it. Here’s a photo of our front door. Trust me, the front door photographs better at a distance. Those cornstalks cover those dated side windows.
Front Door Envy…
How do you like the white trim with the stained front door? I would prefer it either all white or all stain. You? I love those planters! What types of flowers are those?
Love these front doors and stone columns to frame the door.
This door solves my issue with the first front door photo. I prefer the commitment to the stain around the entire door. What do you think?
I see a trend with my favorite front doors. I love the horizontal row of windows that add more light to the interior entry.
I found this photo on Pinterest and as a realtor immediately noticed the lockbox on the door. Check out the home across the street in the door’s reflection.
Here’s a fun twist with paired arched doors. I love these doors but don’t know if I love the length of the glass. That’s a lot of public viewing into the entry. Thoughts?
This home reminds me of a Colorado mountain home. It is located in the mountains, but not the Colorado mountains. This home is in a community in the Carolina mountains. I love everything about the front of the home. Now I have front porch column envy! Stay tuned! Comments, please! I want feedback on my front door envy favorites.
