How simple and beautiful is this? I am absolutely loving this pink door and even better it's a dutch door! I love how the color of the door does most of the "talking" while the two flowers flanking the doorway complement the color perfectly.  If you have a statement color on your doorway, keep the flowers simple. Let the door be the center point while the flowers will just add an extra life to the space.  Making sure to complement the flowers to the color of your door adds just that extra little touch to make it perfect!

Invest in some great planters

If you are a regular reader then you already know that I happen to be obsessed with decorating with blue and white. I find the colors to be so beautiful and elegant and instantly bring life into a space. So when I saw these chinoiserie planters flanking a front door, I about died. These are so stunning! The green trees just bring so much color against the black and white colors of the front door and trim. These would be a great addition to anyone with a neutral front door looking to bring more color to their entrance, perfect for spring! You could also add bright tulips or hydrengias if you are looking for flowers instead of trees and these planters would still look great!
