When walking, biking or driving, a good looking front entrance of a home can catch our eye along a streetscape. We tend to look, and look again. What is it that makes us “look again”? Is it the landscaping, the architecture, the exterior paint colors, a waving flag, an inviting sitting area, or a bold front door that creates interest and a positive first impression? It’s all subjective, of course. We each have been conditioned or trained in some way over the years to see what attracts us to a certain style of home we reference as well-designed or well-put together.
In Davis we have an eclectic assortment of architectural style amidst the different neighborhoods in every direction of the city. Whatever the architectural design or color palette, solar panels or not, xeriscape landscaping or lush garden with drip-system, duplex or country property – our home is an extenstion of ourselves to some end. Granted, the almighty dollar is a huge factor between our dreams and reality for real estate and everything that goes inside and out. However, there are plenty of examples within our city limits of great style no matter what the square footage or lot size. Good design doesn’t have to be expensive. Remember, a good first impression always starts with a smile. Is your house smiling today?
To launch the first entry of my blog let’s take a “look-see” at just a few of my favorite Davis front entries and porches. These homes make a great first impression faster than you can say, “Welcome Home!”
Do you have a favorite house in Davis? Or, maybe a front door entry you admire? Send me a picture and some details about it; I’d love to read your email at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
