I love that door and the sidelites. Can you tell me how wide the glass is in the middle of the door? So chic!

2. Yellow Door With a Cool Gray ExteriorThis yellow with a touch of green in it looks fantastic against the blue-gray siding. The white trim offers a crisp accent. This fresh, contemporary palette perfectly showcases the interesting architecture.
Cathy Lara added this to Houzz Tour: Openness Rules in a Warm, Modern Home
Log-filled niches (one is visible here) add texture and dimension to the straight lines and angles of the entry. "Our neighbors have been so sweet throughout the remodel, but I know that there was this fear that our home would be cold and boxy," says Brettkelly. "I'd like to think that the house is a kind of warm modern and actually complements its surroundings."
Bud Dietrich, AIA added this to Clues to Finding the Right Color for Your House
Just as the interior colors you select are expressions of your personality, so should the exterior colors be. You can use color to draw the eye in and call attention to an interesting architectural detail. You can also use color to play with scale. The same color in the door placed higher on the wall will call attention to the entry's location from blocks away, confirming that this is where you'll find the front door.
Eric Reinholdt, Architect added this to Design Workshop: Smart Ways to Store Wood Outdoors
The alcove. Recessed areas designed specifically for storing firewood are great solutions when the amount of wood to be stored is less than a cord. Located near the door and under a sheltering overhang, this firewood storage smartly integrates intermediate plates in the larger alcove. The divisions make removing logs from the stack more manageable. The plates are self-supporting at the sides, so it’s possible to remove a log from the middle section without affecting the top or bottom. The proportions of the subdivisions nicely match the door sidelights, and the wood is a pleasing textural element against the smooth siding.
