A new home to decorate! Starting with... the front porch!

Let the games begin!  We're packing up and getting ready to move into our new home.  So of course, I'm ponding how to add those special touches.  So let's start with the front entry.  It's a classic colonial style and since Mike and I tend to lean toward traditional decor it's perfect.  Of course, I'd like to add a little pizzazz.  

How about a burgundy red front door?  I bought a brass pineapple door knocker a while back.  I think it would be perfect!  I already have two urn planters that would look nice on either side of the front door.

I'm not crazy about the little black numbers.Maybe I can come up with a way to do the house numbers in an interesting way.  Any ideas?

I found a couple of options.
credit to: for this idea.  She painted these using enamel paint. 
Vinyl numbers available at the Picadilly Peddler's Etsy shop for $10 

Here's the same concept but on a red door using a white paint pen.

Another cute idea...
This idea came from The Happy Homebody's Blog.

  There was one more idea but I can't find the picture.  So I guess I'll be back later with more!
Give me your feedback on which you think will look best.  And do you think the red door is the best color pick???

Thanks for visiting!  If you haven't already, join my followers group so we can keep in touch!

Make it a GREAT day!

Such a beautiful house! Congratulations. I love the idea of a red door, I'm always attracted to red doors, and I'm sure the pineapple door knocker and urns will be wonderful. Not too sure about the numbers options, kinda like it the way it is now. Enjoy customizing!
