There are only so many things you can do to dress up the façade of your home without turning it into something from National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation; one of the more creative ways to make your home festive year-round is to brighten your doorway with a little paint. The front door is what welcomes people into your home, and there are a multitude of beautiful colors to add a little pizazz to your front door without being garish. Take into account the color and material on the exterior of your home, and have one of the experts at your local paint store help you find the perfectly complimentary hue. It is a charming way to make your home more inviting, and add a little personality. For more color ideas see this article from “This Old House“.
