This Old House, Charlestown Greek Rival Row HouseTraditional Entry, Boston
Lovely front entrance with delft blue paint and brass accents. Front doors should say welcome and thank you for visiting, I think this does just that!
What Houzz contributors are saying:
1. Paint the front door. It’s far less commitment than painting the exterior and has more bang for the buck. While you’re choosing a paint color, consider whether you want to update the hardware as well — shiny new hardware can give your home a fresh look, and you can change the locks at the same time (always a good idea when you buy a house), so it’s a win-win.
These two photos may initially appear dissimilar; however, they are more alike than you might realize. Scale is the differentiator, but they are both rooted in traditional architecture and they function similarly. An entrance door is centered within each foyer and each has a chandelier, albeit of considerably different magnitudes. Each also has a beautiful table, upon which rests a vase of flowers. Mirrors allow the play of light and provide reflection, and color adds emphasis. These elements are common to many entries. Attention to the scale of the details and the execution of the design make them successful here.Design your entry with an architect on Houzz
