entrance exam

A home's entrance says a lot about a person. This Gloucester client was looking for a custom design that would celebrate her new seaside home, and provide another reason to go "overboard," with all things beach related. Since she would be hosting an upcoming wedding shower for her daughter, my client was hoping to show off her new home to family and friends. Isn't it funny how a gathering of any kind can help to get your butt in gear?

This photo of the outdoor space, supplied by the client, made me think that we were going to need some plants with height for the urn designs. A site visit, including a tour of the inside of the client's beautiful home, provided me with a pretty good idea of what she had in mind.

An elegant and understated use of greens and touches of white was the perfect complement against a teal green door, and the classic black urns didn't hurt either. Using the hog brush wreath as a base, I selected a combo of faux grasses, hydrangea, trailing succulents, queen annes lace, an upscale burlap-y ribbon along with some foraged elements including driftwood, starfish, and a clam shell from my personal collection.

The blue crab door knocker just takes it up a knock (get it?), making this entrance exam an A+.
