I feel that it is an extension of the rest of the house, and think of it as another room of a home.
Simple houses look like homes when the have a front porch out front.
However, there are other accessories to the front of the house that I believe can make it more "homey" as well.
Now,the other day I received my House Beautiful Magazine,and instead of cleaning my house like I should, I sat outside on my porch in my patio chair and read the magazine.
(Believe me, the dishes and laundry didn't go anywhere while I was sitting there.....unfortunately:)
I have always loved brightly colored front doors, and the magazine spoke about colors that you could paint your front door.
So, I have collected a few inspiring photos for you.
Here are a few paint samples that I think would be lovely colors on a front door
If you are not into sea blue or tulip red how about a sweet yellow or a calming green?
Here are some door pics
My all time favorite doors have to be a Tulip Red door and a French Blue (like the following)
So, when was the last time you said to someone "I just adore my front porch light"
Um, never, right?
But, why shouldnt we?
Its right there on the front of our house,welcoming guests and waiting for us when we arrive home after dark.
So, shouldnt it also be wonderful?
Here are a few really nice ones.
