The New House Saga: Decorating the Outside of our Front Entry

The front entry needs something.

What that is, I am not sure. 

Granted, we are going into winter soon, so I won't have to worry about anything but keeping the sidewalk and stoop clear of snow, but it just feels like it needs something.  Something to make it feel more like a home.

A bright red metal star?  A colorful outdoor rug?  A small metal table and chair - painted a super bright color?  Even a large planter with a few smaller ones around it would help brighten up the space come spring.  The area doesn't get much sun (a bit of early morning) so it would need to be shade tolerant plants.

The space isn't that large, but it is big enough that it does need something in that corner. 

Maybe a straw bale and corn shuck for fall/winter?  That could look nice. 

Any suggestions?

Then, what color should we paint the door?  The house is yellow and has a brown roof.  I want something bright.

  1. You could do a bench along the long wall on the right if it isn't too much in the way. I had a friend with a similar walk up path do that and it looked good. And then a planter or something on the porch? A cheery blue for the door? I don't know, but I'm enjoying your thought process because we will have to be making the same kind of decisions with our new house soon!
