the one about a stylish door

Having a welcoming stylish door to your home is just part of taking of your house to me. I could walk up to a house with a plain white door and the people inside could be wonderful, inviting, warm, the best of friends. They probably are. I know that, and I do not judge. But walking up to a bright blue door with a green wreath lets me know they’re also a bit eclectic. Walking up to a large wooden door with a wreath floral wreath lets me know they’re earthy, rustic. Walking up to a black door with a monogram let’s me know they’re modern.

When you’re renting, that wreath becomes even more important. The front door of a rental could be any color, have any number of dents or scratches, and who knows how old it might be. I’ve had rust colored doors, red doors, orange doors, white doors, grey doors, doors that I’m pretty sure are a hundred years old, and doors that I’m pretty sure should be condemned. But I always have a pretty wreath on my door.



I almost always make my own wreath and find a jazzy door mat from Target to go with it. That wreath up there is my recent creation, and the how to is over on My Crafty Spot today. The watercolor coffee filter flowers were so easy to make. I want to make more, but have no reason to. It’s unfortunate.

How do you keep your door stylish?

    YES! I totally agree with you on this. There’s just something so warm and inviting about a beautifully styled entryway. I’m excited about a lot of things about moving into a new house soon, but one of the areas I’m most excited to make my own is the entryway. I love this wreath idea! I plan to make a few for each season and holiday!
