TUESDAY FINDS: DRESS UP YOUR ADDRESS BY PAINTING YOUR FRONT DOOR

Did you know that dreaming about a door represents new opportunities and change? Hey, I’m no dream expert, but maybe it’s actually your front door trying to tell you “Opportunity is knocking and I’m ready for a change!”

Giving your front door some paint love is one of my favourite ways to create a first impression and make a lasting design statement. It also brings new life to your home. In fact, a big, beautiful splash of curb appeal at the entryway can lift up the whole exterior of your house, drawing more attention to cool but often-overlooked architectural details – not to mention those adorable flowers you spent the weekend planting out front.

Like I always say, you can’t judge a book by its cover, but you can judge an awesome home by the colour of its front door.
