Knock, knock...


Since we all have one and they are the first thing that a person sees when they visit your home, today it's all about making an entrance!

Front doors can be large and architectural -

On the left:   pivot door from Portella Iron Doors and entry door from Keratuer

In the centre: "Modern Front Door" from Modern Furniture

On the right:  beautiful timber and glass entry door from Noosa Door Centre, modern entry door by Keratuer and"Lumina" entrance door from Corinthian Doors

or more traditional in style -

Clockwise from the top left: "Ealy House" front door,  historic Seaport home entrance, fresh in white - door via tiennie knits, a lovely Heritage Door, a beautiful door via This Old House and farmhouse front door via Nibs Blog

They can be made of glass -

Images: a beautiful entrance at this Westlake home, gorgeous yellow door from Sarah's Party Perfect, a pair of beachy white doors at Hale Laka, contemporary glass door from Kuhl Doors and a dramatic entrance in charcoal from Daily Home Renovation Tips

Look beautiful in natural timber -

Left: "Logie" Highland Cottage

Centre: Christy's Thrifty Decorating

To the right: 1920's oak front door and 19th Century pine front door both from UK Architectural Heritage

or equally as lovely when painted -

All the colours of the rainbow: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet!

So, if you haven't already, what are you waiting for? Time to make a statement with your  front door! I think I might be taking to mine with a paint brush in the not too distant future.

And don't forget -

  1. You are so right, first impressions are very important. I love the double sided doors.

  2. These are all so lovely, it would be so fun to have pink front door!

  3. Hi Stephie: I lovely the door with natural timber look. I like so much to see the wood grain in the door. But Pink front door is perfect for a girl bedroom.
    Many hugs mine and of my Mum.

  4. all these doors and Helen Keller quote...beautiful!

  5. Thanks e!

    I would really love to paint my front door yellow or pink but it won't go with the house :(

    I think I can get away with green though - I can't wait to get started!
