The stained front door and boxwood wreath enhances the cottage-style aesthetic of this metro Atlanta home. Interior designer Anisa Darnell selected a wooden door and stained it for a warm and weathered look. A modern lantern contrasts with the stone exterior and boxwoods in tall planters, she says.
The weathered-finish gate serves both an aesthetic and functional purpose to the space. It creates a dramatic focal point as well as a practical entrance for staging of events. Wisteria frames the peaks of the pavilion, giving it a storybook quality that fits well with the beautiful flower garden and the structure's cottage feel. In an effort to maintain a seamless span, the wooden beams used in the timber frame we hollowed out and reinforced with steel.
