Beautiful lantern, I was wondering if you have two hanging lights, 1 on porch and 1 in foyer, which one hangs high and which one hangs low?

@rosesoldani - the answer to that question depends on the style of the light and your home. Many people like to see both fixtures through the transom above the door, so these were hung in reference to that.

Thank you for your compliment! The door surround was crafted on site by a carpenter. The actual door itself may be listed in the Southern Living Resource Guide:

Re link: Thanks for providing a link to the 2012 Southern Living Idea House Resource Guide. FYI, the link provided did not work on my smart phone as it is to a dropbox location. It did work on my computer (perhaps because I have a dropbox account there). Thanks again!

Also, it's great you downloaded the 2012 Southern Living Idea House Resource Guide to dropbox, because the original Southern Living URL is broken.

Thanks again

Anyone know what the fourth plant is? - I can see there is fern, hydrangea, potato vine. Can anyone identify the very fine leafed fourth plant? It's best seen in the planter on the right. Thank you!

Unfortunately, we don't have it on file. It was likely picked by the interior designer.

Door Manufacturer? - The proportion of the sidelights and transom is perfect. Having trouble finding a door where the width of each pane of glass appears to be the same in both the transom and sidelights, especially with impact glass. Would you be able to recall the door name and/or Manufacturer? Thanks in advance for any clues you might provide.

This was an Idea House for Southern Living magazine and many of the materials and products were provided by sponsors. Marvin Windows and Doors was a sponsor, but we can't say for sure that they provided the door. I took a quick look through the document below and could not confirm.

We'd have to pull detailed construction drawings to get those dimensions, and will see if they are easily accessible or archived. But, this is a Southern Living Idea House. They may be able to answer your question quicker than we can. Here's a link.

I believe it is Hardie, but since this was an Idea House many of the products were specified by the magazine and not our selections. I am not sure if the question is answered in this, but try the resource guide for the home:

In this case, the door was a lovely heart pine, so the interior was left natural. Unfortunately, I don't have a photo.

No, unfortunately I can't confirm the source. However, I've been told that Restoration Hardware has something similar.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Mitchell Parker added this to Photos of 2013: The Most Popular Farmhouse Spaces
1. If first impressions are everything, then the entryway is one of the most important elements of a home. We all want to feel uplifted when we get home after a long day, and we want guests to feel welcome when they come over. Here oversize planters, antique-style light fixtures and a crisp white exterior paint made this the most saved farmhouse photo uploaded in 2013. See more photos of this homePaint: Natural Choice, Sherwin-Williams; flooring: Transcend decking in Gravel Path, Trex; wall lanterns: Williamsburg 16-inch Flush Mount in Natural Gas, Bevolo; hanging lantern: French Quarter 21-inch on Yoke Bracket in Electric, Bevolo; doormat: braided coir, double wide, Restoration Hardware
Brenna Malmberg added this to Entry Refresh: Step Into the Holiday Season With a New Welcome Mat
Keep It NaturalIf the entry is already bursting with details, such as eye-catching hardware and light fixtures, a neutral mat will help keep the attention on them. Natural doesn’t have to mean boring. A woven texture ups the visual interest of the natural doormat seen here.
Lauren Dunec Design added this to Get the Look: New England Garden Style
Seasonal containers. Add colorful pots to either side of the front door to create a welcoming entry, just as these New England-style containers do outside a home in Atlanta. Choose containers in sleek black or fresh white for a traditional look. Fill the pots to the brim with trailing vines and bright blooms in spring and summer, and replace with evergreens in fall and winter.5 Container Gardens for Fall, the Holidays and Beyond
