Enhancing the Sense of Arrival

Simple elements that trigger a unique sense of place; beautifully painted doors, subtle lighting, detailed plantings. Mental images come to mind of a sampling of significant thresholds; the multi-colored splendor of San Francisco’s Victorian houses; the bright Georgian doors of Dublin; sun-bleached wooden doorways of the warmer zones; London’s graphic gloss-black painted doors displaying the traditional bell-shaped lion’s head knocker, and brass digits; the breezy elegance of the French door; the double height door of a grand, glass entry to a modern house.

Much has been said about the importance of a memorable first impression. Entry points are the most important part of a facade, every decision made should be considered for its support and accent. Whether it’s the back or front entrance— regard the energy your portal can convey to visitors—and yourself. Abundance; seasonal awareness; welcoming whimsy; secluded shelter; or realtor-ready curb appeal.
