Germany: Inspiring Exteriors

2 Comments

Your front door is one of the first things that people see when they approach your house. It tells guests a little bit about your personality, your home, and can make a stunning first impression. On my recent trip to Germany, I couldn’t help but notice the incredible doors, flower boxes, and windows, ranging from ornate to rustic. Enjoy my photos:

  1. I was doing “door watching” in old wooden churches in Lithuanian countryside, old houses downtown Vilnius as a student, also in Fez and Marrakesh later. It is amazing how important the appearance of the entrance door is! Love the first pic and the yellow mailbox. For me the flower pots and boxes look so cozy and welcoming.

    • I’m a door watcher too! I would love to see pictures of the old churches in Lithuania. The door really sets the tone for the entire house. I agree about the flower boxes. They’re one of my favorite things about German exteriors. They add color and a sense of comfort.
