The goal for a well designed entrance is to set the tone for what lies ahead.  Starting with the front door and carrying through to inside that entrance. It doesn’t matter if you have a veranda, portico or a single step you can add your own touches of interest.

Don’t forget these elements- color and finish of the door, the hardware (door knocker or unique door bell, finish of hinges and door latches and knobs, lighting, plants, plants in an interesting container- when planning your “this is my house” statement! Once inside, the lighting, flooring, and pieces reflect the look of the rest of your “nest”.
