The last three pictures are of the same house but different doors. In the Feng Shui philosophy, the front door is the most important part of your house because that is where the "chi" (energy) comes in. I'm not even sure which one of these doors is used as the front entrance but the owner did a fabulous job with the color, the rich wood and shutters, the pavers, and completing the look with an Italian terra cotta urn. Whether you believe in Feng Shui or not, any realtor will tell you how important the front entrance to a house is. The first impression sets the tone for everything else. This entrance says, "Please, come in. Let me get you a glass of Chianti and a plate of olives." Why thank you...I think I will!
