    Great post! I LOVE that first door. So stylish!

  2. LindsB says:

    I wish I didnt live in an apartment when these posts come up, I would LOVE to do a fun color on my front door. I would go with orange..suprise, suprise right.

    I'm thinking of painting the inside of my door a chic glossy black, I wonder how the landlord would feel about that?

  3. sonya audrey says:

    Oh, I'd love to add a pop of color to my front door. 🙂 Maybe green…or yellow!

  4. Alexandria~~The Mommy says:

    My favorite door is the pink one!

    Hmmm….wonder what my landlord will think if I do this??

  5. urbansardines says:

    I'm with Lindsay in apartmentville… it's so sad. Such are the downsides of living in an expensive city :-). Did you see the door knockers on "The Designer's Attic" they are simply awesome!
    I would get a cool door knocker if I had my own door!!

  6. Dagny @ Beautiful Living says:

    That Miles Redd door is, as you know, my absolute fave!!! The green door below it is also stunning though!! Great post! 😀


  7. Erin says:

    Fab post! So many great ideas. I love having a unique, welcoming door. Paint is perfect, but I never even thought about having cool numbers. I love the etching in the glass!

  8. journeychic says:

    These are great ideas! Makes me wish I wasn't in a condo assoc. Even though they're cool, I don't know if I can paint my door. Will have to ask. Ours is pretty boring.

  9. Scientific Housewife says:

    Great post, they are great ways to update a boring front door.

  10. The Wife of a Fisherman says:

    I recently painted our front door a high gloss black and added a door knocker. it made a huge difference and cost almost nothing!

  11. Mrs. Limestone says:

    Wonder what paint was used on that front door – it just pops right off the screen.

  12. Maria says:

    Such great creative ideas on a budget, thanks for the big lots tip too…ill check it out!

  13. Ms. Bright says:

    Fantastic post, Camila!
    I have looked at that same pic of Miles Reed's front door today, too!
    I painted the ext. of ours Festoon Aqua (SW 0019) last year and couldn't be happier. I'm about to paint the inside gloss black, since I just did this to the 2 in our mudroom and it's beyond killer!

  14. Katie says:

    how fun! i love entryways!

  15. Red Lipstick Style says:

    Entry ways are wonderful. I'm stumped on my courtyard, however, I need to make it more private (if you have any ideas?! 😉

  16. court. says:

    paint it all black! I'm super-jealous seeing as the door to my rental is PUMPKIN. ewie.

  17. Lavender and Lilies says:

    I love the ideas for the door numbers. Adorable.

  18. ::levina:: says:

    swooning over that first door.

    btw…you've got a great blog 🙂

  19. Maria Killam says:

    Excellent suggestions! I love that hot pink door! Wow, I need to run out and paint my front door now!

  20. Hopeless Chest says:

    I love those brightly painted front doors. Maybe I'll paint the front door in my sun porch… when I move in. It will have to coordinate with the red-orange orignal brick though :S

  21. Becolorful says:

    Loved this post. I was thinking about doing a front door myself since I am debating painting my front door. It sounds crazy but I am thinking of a bright golden yellow. Our home is traditional white with black or charcoal shutters. Currently the door is a cranberry and has been for about six years. I'm thinking it is tim to mix it up but I never thought about bright green. Very interesting. Now I am even more confused 🙂

  22. Averill says:

    Our front door is stained wood…and it's nice but nothing special. I'd love to paint it a bright blue a la Redd's door but would have to go through HOA first (ugh).

    When I was in Dublin I saw street after street of GORGEOUS front doors. I only wish I had thought to take pictures of them all! Serious perfection.

  23. Blueprint Bliss says:

    great post! love, love that first image.

  24. Cristin says:

    How funny! I am working on a post regarding painting a front door and have a couple of these images (couldn't pass up using Mile's).

    Lovely post!!!


  25. Double Glazing Birmingham says:

    Impressive design! These doors come with a variety of detail choices from type of wood, style of design, color, texture, glass panes, and varnishing.

My living room is one of the rooms that evolved drastically from when we first moved one. Originally I painted the walls chocolate brown and did accents of white, blue and orange. That lasted maybe 2 years.

Our dining room sat empty for months. Okay maybe it was empty for just a handful of weeks and then we couldn’t take it anymore and put in a folding table and plastic outdoor chairs, but in my mind that was still empty.

On the main floor of our house we have a Florida room. Being that it’s a Florida room it is a considered a 3 season room, because there is no heat in the room. The previous owners used it as an indoor patio with outdoor furniture and it looked like this when we moved in.


Fall is the perfect season to host an outdoor movie night in your backyard! It’s that time of year when outdoor furniture is still outside and it gets dark earlier than the summer which means your little kiddos can enjoy the movie night as well. It’s so nice to transform your backyard with cozy blankets, […]

round up of budget friendly bar carts

Can you believe it’s already November? Before we know it Thanks No. 1 Modern bar cart with patterned sides that looks great as is, but would also look amazing painted a pop of color! Plus it’s only $157. No. 2 This lucite bar cart is a personal favorite of mine. Look at those chic lines! […]

For the longest time our backyard was mainly just grass and a little small area where we laid down some pavers so that we could set out a little plastic table/chairs during the summer. Not exactly ideal for entertaining. For the past couple of years we have wanted to build a deck and enjoy the […]
