Front Door Make-Over, Blue is the New Black

“There is always one moment in childhood when the door opens and lets the future in”, stated the novelist Graham Greene.  It seemed a particularly good quote to remember as I perused the photos proud parents posted of their kids on Facebook this week.  Back to school is one of the best times to get fresh photos of kids wearing their newest fashion statements at the front door.  I’ve included a few from the Stewart, Kaufusi, and Colquitt families in my post.  Olivia’s striped blue & white backpack is available in our Tai Pan Trading stores!

The front door is such a beautiful backdrop for so many of life’s special moments. I was inspired by these charming pictures to update my own front door, perfect timing to maximize the curb appeal of my Fall and Halloween decorating that is just around the corner.
