Curb Appeal - Input Needed!

Curb appeal is incredibly important when you're selling a house.  Whether it's the first look people get when they look at a house online, or when they do a drive by, the house has to look inviting to make potential buyers want to come in.

So that might (or might not!) explain why I'm agonizing over a fall wreath for the front door.  I bought two of them, but just can't make up my mind.  So I'd love your input.  Which do you like better?  Left or right?

  1. I think the one on the right - it looks more substantial, and you need that beside the mailbox. Otherwise it could get a little lost

  2. I like the one on the left... the fuller one. I think the other one looks skimpy in that space.

  6. The left.
    Prior to reading the text of the post, I thought you were going to mention that the dead bolt and lockset weren't the same finish as the house numbers, mailbox and light fixture. You might not notice from the curb, though. :)

    1. Ha ha. It's a really nice, solid brass lockset that came with the house. And since I'm not a fan of matchy-matchy, I like the mix with the oil rubbed brass accents (and of course the mailbox has brass highlights on it!).

  7. Left is more formal, Right is more whimsical!

  8. I like right. I'm guessing this exercise is not helping!

    1. You're right!!! And everyone is coming up with the same thoughts I have. I like them both, but for different reasons!

  9. On the right. It doesn't overwhelm the door.

  10. The one on the left...a substantial door...needs a substantial wreath. :)

  11. The right...I agree the one on the left is too over whelming...too chunky... LOL

  12. The right...the other one is nice, but so formal. The right has a warm feel.

  13. If you didn't have them side-by-side, anyone would probably agree either look nice & would be fine. But since you present them as you do, I think the right looks "classy," in the way you decorate all your projects! The left makes the door look a bit top-heavy. Enjoy following your blog & watching you breathe new life into these wonderful old homes!

  14. I'm with the left, based on size. Both are great colors.

  15. You know, at first I was going to say Left, because I like it's shape. The more round, consistent shape with the softer leaf things pleases me.

    But looking closer, I rather like the color of the red/orange one on the right. It feels more like "Fall" than the one on the left, and it's very true that it's smaller shape doesn't take over the door completely.

  16. I like the bittersweet on the right :)

  17. I agree the left looks a little top heavy, but the fuller wreath with tidy edges looks better overall. Maybe it could be balanced with a brass kickplate? Love the door color

  18. the right --the color looks so good with the blue door

    ReplyDelete
  19. The right one will def make more of an impression from the 'curb,' as well as, bringing out the blue in the door!

  20. I always prefer a wreath with a looser feel, so I like the one on the right. If you keep the one on the left, try hanging it slightly lower (as the right one is). They both are nice and substantial!

    ReplyDelete
  21. This little blog request is going to make it worse for you:) That being said I LOVE the one on the right.....Love the color pop, the loose whimsical feel.....good luck. I did good on the help you asked for with the paint choices:) haha.

    Love your updates....keep them coming!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Haha... this is what you get for asking!

    On another door/house, I'd go with the bittersweet (right), but on this door and with that mailbox, I'd go with the more substantial, more formal one of the left. Move it down a bit lower though.

    So much for crowdsourcing, huh?

  23. I like them both as well but I think the right pops more. The color is more vibrant and seems like it draws you in more than the left one although the left one is really nice too. You can't go wrong with either one.

  24. Love the one on the right. The color pops and it looks cleaner and more chic. Good luck!

  25. I like the one with the orange sprigs. the leafy one looks like it came out of someone's attic - they actually remind me of styling that was popular in the late 90s.... fyi left/right were switched between Feedly and the website...
