Quirky & Colourful Entrance

A symmetrical house is elevated by an equally balanced garden.

This home's soft grey palette creates a calm, neutral canvas for a gutsy bright yellow door. To keep the focus on the eye-catching entrance, the surrounding garden was kept simple and green. Perennials like sandcherry and "Limelight" hydrangeas add depth and variation, and better integrate the house to the street. Beds of hostas and impatiens edge either side of the walkway and draw the eye toward a welcoming seagrass stair runner.
