Front Door Narrative

Contrasts are a potent tool in the garden.


This mirror & curving lines of the light fixture balance the squares of the front door.  Exactly what I would have chosen.  And the scale of the frontdoor handle is pure sweetness.
.
This frontdoor starts the narrative of the interior.
.
Every front door has a narrative.  Whether the owner thinks so or not.

Pic via Cote de Texas.  If the door were palladian then a square/rectangular mirror would be best.  Do not forget to use 'contrast' in your quiver of tools.

I dream of living in a climate where this is the exterior of my house. Beautiful.

"Quiver of tools" . . . what a perfectly descriptive phrase. I so enjoy your pithy posts.
