From Blah to Ahhh!

We built our new home about 5 years ago and I just love it. At one point my doors were white which gave me a huge expanse of white across the front. Last summer I decided to paint the door black and just love it. But something was still lacking.

The last few summers I have bought real trees and placed on both sides of the door but sadly, they have died. So this year I got smart!

I know what some of you are thinking. Gasp, fake trees!! But they look so real and I planted vinca vine and impatiens around the sides.

I love the way they turned out!


  1. I like it too!


  2. Hi there, thank you SO much for stopping by my blog and leaving such a sweet note about my master bedroom redo! As a fellow red lover, I'm sure you can understand it being hard to break away from those colors for the blues in the bedroom! I'm sure touches of it in your master would look gorgeous with your tans/creams! It's a fun change, I must say. I LOVE your new topiaries ... they make your already beautiful entrance look that much grander! I look forward to seeing your other upcoming projects. Take care, Becca
