Ok, I have a decorating pet peeve. Boring front doors. Let’s face it, the entry is the first place your decorating style is showcased, and it is a main contributor to your curb appeal as well. So many people just accept a cheesy front door picked by their builder, or the former owner, and don’t stop to consider how much it contributes to the overall feel of your home. So pull out the paintbrush and a few accessories and try these front door ideas! Can’t you just see a holiday wreath on these front doors? This isn’t hard, and front door decor & design are details that count!
