The Dynamic Entryway.....


The entry to your home is your blank canvas. What do you want it to say about you? What do you want it to say about your home? its style? its personality? the family that lives in it?
This is the opportunity we have to create something elegant, artsy, fun, laid back, conservative....you name it. Whether you do it with color, plants or accents around the door, your entry is the first thing that visitors see and the biggest impression you can make.



I've always loved the idea of playing with Front door color. It's something so affordable and can be changed every year if you have commitment issues. Finding the perfect color is a journey that says everything about who you are.



A traditional black or deep charcoal will give you the conservative classic look while a whimsical tangerine might say that you're willing to take chances in life. pretty tough to make too big an error on the door....If it's wrong? you'll know it right away and you can just head back to Benjamin Moore for another consult. Take some color matches of the home and its trim and then try those with a host of hues that appeal to you. When you get it right, the neighbors will love it.




Accents around or on the door can also give major impact for a lot less. Finding something to hang is almost as simple as a visit to Google for ideas. It's not surprising that when you need a little help with something unique, you can almost bet that the information highway has an infinite amount of pictures and suggestions on the perfect accent. Once you've seen something you love, it's easy to head out and find it or put together your own version of it.


Whether it's two symmetrical planters showcasing your entry like little soldiers, a couple of handmade cedar chairs or an amazing live wreath hanging....take the opportunity to say a little something about the people that live inside by mapping out a completely unique entrance to your palace !!
