Front Entry

Entry- Golden archways, literally. The arches are of course more Greek (who drew artistically from Egypt however), and tie in well with the grand plants and beautiful gold doorway. This is gold done boldly but not ostentatiously. If doors are the portal into a house's soul then I am definitely curious about what lies within.
These weathered stairs look as if they've been walked on many times. They feel welcoming and as if they've earned their spot of honor in front of this home.

Is there a technique for weathering new concrete, or must it just get better with age?

Good question??
I have heard of spraying buttermilk on concrete to grow moss to get that old weathered look, may not be what you are looking for?
Have you googled it?

And speaking of inviting, how about welcoming guests with a glamorous gold front door! It's a little extra oomph that's not overly extravagant.
Shawn Gauthier added this to Go Bold With Gold
If the outside of your home needs a desperate dose of chic, use gold for the front doors. Your visitors will be greeted in style.

Highlight architectural features. Choose an architectural detail in your home to highlight with gold. The door frame in this photo goes from unseen to front-and-center with gold leaf.
