Nothing says “welcome” like a gorgeous and well-maintained front door. Farrow and Ball has long been a favored brand for decor enthusiasts throughout the United States and Europe because of its high quality. The paint reflects light in all the right places and gives a rich, saturated color that highlights the carpentry beneath.
A freshly painted door, whether in a rich hue, one that’s bright and colorful or soft and subdued – makes a statement about those that reside within! That design matters…

As we move into the Fall and Winter season, the front “stoop” becomes a focal point of the home. If there are three months of the year when the front door gets its close-up – it’s definitely the October/November/December time frame. People love to put out cheerful mums, freshly carved pumpkins and spooky Halloween skeletons, bats, goblins and ghouls in time for trick-or-treaters and their parents as they go from house to house. How often throughout the year does one front door get so much action? If you live in a neighborhood with kids, get ready for the neighbors with whom you’ve been meaning to catch up with all year to pop by in streams of twenty at a time on Halloween night! If that door has been at the bottom or your list, let’s start thinking about how to spruce it up! It will get plenty of action on Halloween!

Come Thanksgiving the black cats, witches and ghosts are put back into storage and it’s time for wreaths of pheasant feathers, squash, Indian corn and cornucopias to be placed around the threshold to celebrate our nation’s harvest. The front door takes on yet another inviting role welcoming guests for the Thanksgiving feast! By the time Christmas arrives, festive poinsettias and lit-up topiaries dress up the front door. The Fall and Winter holidays provide ample time and reason to make the front door the centerpiece of the home!

Are you feeling inspired yet? We are excited to announce that our friends at Farrow and Ball are holding a “FIND THE FARROW & BALL FRONT DOOR” contest on October 3, 2015 in Greenwich and Westport! Everyone loves a scavenger hunt, so we are excited to share this opportunity with our local readers in the Greenwich/Westport/Fairfield County and Westchester area! If you are reading this blog post thinking that there is no way you will have time before the holidays to pull together a paint color, buy the paint and hire a painter- listen up! This contest is for you!
On October 3rd, 2015 Farrow and Ball will be challenging our readers to “find” the Farrow & Ball painted door for your chance to win a freshly painted door. The team at Farrow & Ball will be hiding 6 doors at secret locations throughout Greenwich and Westport and sharing clues as to where you can find them via the hashtag #FindtheFBDoor on Twitter. They are giving away fantastic prizes including a professionally painted front door in the colors of your choice and in-home color consultations, as well as a multitude of sample pots to collect from local Farrow & Ball showrooms. Follow the Farrow & Ball Twitter and Instagram accounts to be the first to know! Sign up now and set your calendars to be ready the morning of October 3rd for this fun scavenger hunt.
