Creating a stylish front door can really add to the curb appeal and character of your home. I've done a few front door makeovers and I think if you consider these 3 things you can create a stylish area.
1. A BLACK FRONT DOOR
Painting a front door black is a classic look, that tends to go with many different styles and colours. The image above (from House Beautiful) shows a black door with a window. This is something else to consider if you want to add more light on the interior of your entry.
This is a similar door from Pella with a window.
2. EXTERIOR LIGHTING
Adding some beautiful exterior lighting also enhances the look. This sconce is similar to the one shown above, from Circa Lighting.
3. ADD URNS OR GREENERY
If you have the space to add two urns or stylish planters on either side of the front door it adds symmetry and balance to the area. Like the image above, the greenery on either side of the door adds so much to this house. The height and colour really works to create a charming area. A stylish planter or topiary from Restoration Hardware (this is 'preserved' boxwood but can only live outside in the summer). Check with your local garden store for a suitable exterior greenery for your area.
