Bright Green Entry With Unstained Wood Front Door and White Trim
The light, unstained wood front door fits perfectly with the fresh, bright look of this home's entryway. The light green walls surround the space with a positive energy. A white column, white trim and window seat fill the space with clean lines and sharp design.
"Colorful produce is a fragrant and easy way to add style to the entry," stylist Matthew Mead says. "Inexpensive fruits like green apples, tangelos and lemons" add interest everywhere, from centerpieces to the staircase, and create engaging focal points, he says. "Berries and sprigs of evergreen add a festive touch." Photo courtesy of Matthew Mead
