As with interiors, the outside of your home needs layers to make it interesting and welcoming from the street. Here are some things to think about to add some fabulous layering to the outside of your home.
The front door is such and important focal point to your home. Make the most of it with doors that compliment the style of your home.
Can't figure out what style door will look best? Start by evaluating the style of your home. This is a great website to help you figure it out - House Styles Index
Think of your door hardware as the first opportunity to let your personal style and taste shine. This is one of the easiest things to change and with huge results.
To shutter or not to shutter that is the question . . .
I love the looks of shutters. I think they are such a pretty layer.
But this is gorgeous too!
Also known as "shutter dogs" these add a bit of jewelry to the shutters. They also turn a so so shutter into something that looks expensive and important.
There are so many materials to choose from with railings, an the styles are endless.
Not only is this an easy fix, it is one of the least expensive ways to update your curb appeal. In fact they are so affordable, you can switch them out seasonally.
I also love the look of vines softening the entryway of a home.
Now is the perfect time of year to sit down and really think about your curb appeal (with a hot cup of chocolate). Make a plan using these simple ideas. Once the weather warms up, you'll be ready to make the changes! M.
