I found these great planters for either side of the front door at Garden Ridge (new name At Home.) So I would have not to replace every season, I decided to go with boxwoods and ivy for the plantings. I purchased the boxwoods at Great Big Green House. It was a little bit of an upfront investment but hopefully it will save money over time.
I currently have a shell door knocker. It matches my shell bathroom sinks but that is for another blog post! I have ordered this one in solid brass from House of Antique Hardware.
I also have plans to paint the front door a fun color! I am leaning towards a teal color.
Here are some inspiration pictures...
And one of these days, we would like to add more bushes to create a bed along the front of the house. My mom suggested relocating those large box woods to the end of each side of the house. But that seems like a major project....they are pretty big but also growing into the banister.
