You Had Me at Hello – 4 Ways To Create A Vintage, Shabby Chic Front Door

While a lot of time and money is spent on interior decorations, the front door is often neglected.

The entrance to your home sets the first impression and the entire mood and ambience that you and your guests expect from your home.

If you’re looking to achieve a warm and cozy, shabby chic vibe at your entrance and front door, here are a few home décor tips to get you started.

Simple front doors can be made to look interesting and homey with the addition of wreaths and baskets around them. Not only do they help give the entrance a burst of color and freshness, but it’s also a very simple way to upgrade it. You may choose a simple faux olive wreath or more decorative Magnolia Acres wreath to achieve the farmhouse and cottage style look.

Lanterns are a sure way to give your entrance rustic, cozy and farmhouse style feels. With a few lanterns hanging on the side of your front door by the porch, or placed next to it, you can bring out that rustic and warm country-style feel of  your front door.

You can also choose a candle lantern with a chimney from our collection selected to add to the welcoming accents of your entrance.

Play with some colors!
Don’t be afraid to get a little playful and cheeky. A colorful front door is another way to make your home stand out and look welcoming. Pastel colors ranging from soft yellows and subtle browns are often complementary with the darker, earthy shades of farmhouse style homes .

Outdoor Plants and Home Décor 
What stands out about cottage style and barn-like entrances is the addition of greenery to them. Outdoor plants and accessories can be one of the most praised features of your home’s front door. You can add one of our Cement Planters or clay and metal pots for your outdoor plants and place them on our Hand-Carved Wooden Pillar to add a rustic, shabby chic feel.
