An Entrance to A Merry & Bright Christmas

There’s no doubt when you approach my Sister-in-law’s home you know this family loves whimsy and color.
Gina recently changed her front doors from green to blue. To achieve this look she painted the doors blue (Sorry, we can’t find the color! I’ll edit this as soon as we find the name of the paint color.) then glazed them with Martha Stewart’s Metallic Glaze in Polished Silver. I just love how these turned out! So pretty! Gorgeous job Gina!

 The large garland above her doors is actually a bright shrimp color but may read as red in the photo. I found out later that the large turquoise bow that sits top and center had blown off. I knew something was missing! 🙂
I had to share (I asked first) this family photo with you guys. I LOVE this photo! It makes me smile everytime I see it.

This photo was taken by photographer Angel Porch in an area of Oklahoma City, near the Red Cup coffee house, known as Red Cup Square.

I hope you are all enjoying the last few days before Christmas. I’m finally beginning to feel like I have things under control…mostly.
Merry Christmas!

    Gina’s entry is beautiful…I especially love the huge ornaments hanging from the garland! All the decorations are so perfectly Gina. 🙂 And the family photo is adorable; it makes me smile, too.

    What a fun picture, Sonya! The outside looks just as great as the inside. Is her front door similar in color to the blue you painted yours? The decor is perfect for letting you know what you will find inside! Gina really found some great colored things I would never have thought of for Christmas!

    I love all of the wonderful color!! The planter (urn) is gorgeous! Did your sister-in-law paint? If so, I am begging for a tutorial? =)

    Hi Sonya! OH, your sister’s home looks amazing! I’m sure she is a fun gal! I love their snap in front of the colorful wall!
    Merry Christmas and be a sweetie,

    Okay, the question is–Where did she find that colored garland?? I spy yet another cherub. I like that she used simple wreaths under the colorful garland. They add just the right touch. It’s nice to see the family behind the color. Merry Christmas, dear friend!
