Basement Door is now the Dowager's Porch

It's common to see a basement door with lawn.  And nothing else.

Mother-in-law Suite doesn't aptly describe this rendition.

Common furnishings, off the shelf shutters, a simple arbor, concrete pavers & voila !

Color theme was chosen and leveraged with punches of yellow.

Boxwoods, liriope, hollies prettier AND easier to maintain than ubiquitous lawn.  Notice, above, the garbage can?

Between driveway & Dowager's Porch is a tiny foyer, above.  Gravel, above, pure brilliance.
Most basement doors are the throw-away-zone.  Worse, the criminal zone.

I do love outdoor curtains. They bring such an "indoor" feel.

I can see Susanne's touches all throughout this post and the new one. I love her style, I just wish someone would have featured her more in books/magazines or done another HGTV show on her.
