The new anodized aluminum swing front door with glass panels allows natural light inside and offers a look at the amazing views enjoyed from this home’s waterfront location. Large black porcelain pavers line the steps up to the front door and help define the entry.
The entry to the courtyard shows how the front bubbling urn fountain features are centered with the walkway and front door, and how the dual fountains frame the walkway, all working together to provide a soothing, yet dramatic space.
Since the home's materials were neutral, adding a wide variety of planting colors soften the walls and ground plane and provide the contrast in color that was desperately needed.

Landscaping clearly articulates the entry statement even prior to encountering the front door in front of this neoclassical-style home. A row of cypress trees and paver driveway with a diamond grass pattern are as dramatic as the home itself.
This entryway offers a dramatic and memorable welcome. Stunning chevron flooring, textured wallpaper and a mod oversized light fixture really make a meaningful impact.

The Craftsman-style home received a complete remodel, which improves circulation by creating a central hall from the entry door that leads to the main spaces of the house. The sweeping ceilings are 10 feet tall, and the hall is lined with rich paneled columns.
A brown metal dining table and chairs accessorizes this classic porch area. Red brick flooring and a painted wood ceiling with ceiling fans roots this porch in a traditional design. Large white columns and French doors create a dramatic entry.
