You never get a second chance to make a first impression….so make sure your front door is just as chic as the lacquered walls and tailored windows in your dining room! It is easy to over look what your guest first see if you come in your home most times with loads of groceries or dragging kids…but take a minute to walk outside and welcome yourself into your own home to see what welcome your guests are greeted with. I am not advocating swathing your front door in curtians or rolling out an actual red carpet…but maybe a splash of color on the door, chic planters, a cool bench…and if your capetner is already on call, maybe some great woodwork:) Make sure your guests know what they are walking into!
