I just realized that I’ve never shared our front door with you, which is a complete crime, because it’s adorable. Seriously. Take a look:

Yellow tulips, my favorite, are often found on our doorstep.

Because the rest of our home’s exterior is fairly subdued, a bright pop of color was in order (remember when we first painted it?) And the modern finishes up the glam factor.

And, of course, because I love a hefty dose of personality in my space, we installed a glass frosted decal to the sidelight. Here’s a closeup…

Surprise! (Please pardon that renovation dust on our window.)

With a custom steel number plate found on eBay and a super fancy entryway keypad (which runs around $150, but are so worth it!), the look is cheerful, modern and welcoming.

Come on in!

Next project for our sweet little curb? We’ll be painting the brick white, installing a modern pergola and crafting white window boxes to hold plenty of yellow tulips. Are you sensing a trend here?

Red brick be gone...

Until then, our bright front door will be welcoming guests with open arms! Happy summer!

      I can't believe this front door. A friend made a suggestion that I paint my new front door yellow and I have been seriosly considering it. I have a light blue vinyl siding. After seeing it I am going to do it. I would also like to know the brand and color name that you used.
