Welcome to Your Week {21}

Welcome to your week!  Since Summer is in full swing, I thought I would share some great back door entrances that lead to some pretty fabulous outdoor spaces.  In our home, we enter through our back door much more often than our front.  We love making each entrance have the same inviting and welcoming feel for our guests and our family.


This kitchen cottage addition offers a great view of the patio directly off the kitchen.  It would lend itself perfectly to entertaining guests.

The French doors of this very tropical entrance are painted to match one of the old tiles found on the outside of this home.  The vibrant color mixes so well with the lush landscaping and creates a bright and fun entrance.  I’m especially loving the large succulents to the right of the doors.

This last patio is incredible, isn’t it?  From the doors to the shutters to the beams and tiled patio–it’s perfect!

Welcome to Your Week {14}

Welcome to your week–on a Tuesday!  Hope you had a fabulous holiday weekend and that it was the perfect end to your Summer.

This oversize Dutch front door is from a home in Connecticut designed by Miles Redd.  The front of the door is painted a lemon yellow, while the inside of the door is a lacquered dark blue.  The contrast is boldly beautiful and makes for a dramatic entry.

A few more photos of this lovely home, including the mudroom painted in Farrow & Ball’s Olive and a couple views of the front walkway and porch.

Happy Tuesday!

Welcome to Your Week {13}

Welcome to your week!  I’m sorry it has been awhile since I have visited with you here.  This summer has been a very full and fun one for our family.  Can you believe it is almost September?  Looking forward to fall and cooler temperatures coming our way shortly.


Today I am sharing the perfect shade of blue for a door in Kefalonia, Greece.  I think the hand painted detail on the doorknob it the perfect touch as well.  Happy Monday everyone!

Welcome to Your Week {12}

It has been a little while since we welcomed in the week together, so I thought we would go with a painted door this week.  The color of this door is Benjamin Moore’s Wythe Blue, which happens to be their Color of the Year for 2012.  I think the color on the door and shutters adds so much to the exterior of this beautiful home.  This particular shade has such a calming effect.  What are some of your favorite colors for front doors?
