Red door and sidewalk flower border add charm Registered & Protected

When framed correctly like the photo above, a red door can become a formal focal point. Add to that this flower hedge border on the sidewalk and you’ve got a winning entry combination. The two topiary planters are just icing on the cake don’t you think?

It just gets better with the black wrought iron window boxes, shutters, and stained glass accents around the red door. An American flag adds that cozy neighborhood feeling which is becoming lost these days. Sad that folks don’t realize how much our great flag can add to the landscaping. Would this be as charming without it?

Ferns, a touch of red, and the inner courtyard with the meandering walkway are most certainly setting off the ornate pattern in the fence.

Peering beyond the fence we see a hedge and subtle presence of the red impatiens.  All drawing your eye to the fountain beyond.

And of course on the other side, the walkway continues revealing a gate adorned with this pretty design.

Tread softly and quietly on the brick path. Doesn’t it make you want to open the gate and see what is waiting on the other side? I did.

    I’d love to know what color this is…paint colors give me anxiety.

      Christy, Thank you for visiting my site. I am not sure of the color but think it’s pretty too. I understand about having color panic. I do too. Got to get it right or it drives me nuts.

      I’m not sure Christy because I only captured the photo. Color is tricky for me too. I have to create a bunch of samples before I can decide.

    Love the red door, but could it work with forest green shutters?

      Yes it definitely could. Sorry so late in responding. I’ve been very sick since 2012.

    Such a beautiful home, and the Red Door is just the right touch.


  6. I like how your photographs told a story. And of course, you know, I love the wonderful porch, red front door and all the gems in between. Nice, Anna.

    I love the red door …. and the red brick walk way to the side gate really makes the house a home!
