my front door

The September 2012 issue of House Beautiful features eleven fabulous front doors from the likes of Miles Redd, Windsor Smith and Lars Bolander…having just completed a major outdoor renovation this summer, I thought it would be fun to feature my front door today! Freshly painted with a coat of high gloss blank paint and adorned with an antique English door knocker, its masculine weight provides a lovely contrast to the beachy bramble colored shingles and clean white trim…the lantern is a new addition to our door-scape…during the day, it offers a much needed sculptural presence, balancing well with the color and texture of the twig wreath…at night, it glows with a soft warm light, perfect for drinks at the cafe table or for welcoming dinner guests!
