Curb Appeal: Craftsman With Pink Front Door

Not even Seattle can dampen the mood of this cheerful Craftsman. A bright pink door and hanging planters perk up the navy blue exterior, while a porch swing, wicker chairs and a white coffee table create an adorable sitting area. The original brick wall is a nice touch, too, as it showcases some of the home's 1918 character.

Craftsman Front Porch and Pink Door

In rainy Seattle, a covered outdoor space is a must. The punchy pink front door was this porch's design jumping off point. Hanging planters pick up the bold color. Armchairs, a coffee table and a porch swing make a comfortable sitting area. Paint colors: Shake siding: Behr Poppy Seed; Front door: Sherwin Williams Amaryllis; Stairs and porch base: Sherwin Williams Tricorn Black

Craftsman Front Porch Before

This Craftsman home had plenty of charm, but its front porch delivered a dated first impression. It needed new, updated finishes (that protected the original brick) and accessories that would let it be a hangout spot.

Craftsman Front Porch and Yard

The owners of this 1918 Craftsman home wanted a front yard and porch that would be instantly welcoming. The original exterior's green stucco was switched out to navy blue siding that paired handsomely with the home's cream-colored trim. For a cohesive look from yard to porch, designers used planters painted the same pale gray as the chairs and porch floor. Chairs, faux tile floor and flower pot paint color: Sherwin Williams Silver Plate

Pink Front Door and Porch

A front door in a unique or bold color (or both!) instantly wakes up the front porch. For this 1918 Craftsman home, pink is the star. Front door paint color: Sherwin Williams Amaryllis; Small rug: Target

Brick Wall With Basket Art

A 5-foot stretch of brick wall is the visual center of this front porch. To make it an attractive focal point, designers added a large wall hanging and lots of plants. Woven wall hanging: Pottery Barn; Bench: Target

Craftsman Front Porch With Pink Flowers

Wicker chairs are painted the same light gray as this porch's faux tile floor for cohesiveness. An outdoor rug helps pull the sitting area together. Rug: World Market

Front Porch Sitting Area With Wicker Chairs

A white-and-gray faux tile floor lightens the overall look of this front porch. The sitting area has a friendly mix of vintage, custom-painted and new furniture. The floor stencil: Dizzy Duck Designs.

Front Porch Sitting Area With Swing

This front porch's sitting area has boho flair with a porch swing, wall hanging and cozy textiles in a mix of patterns. The swing is the same creamy white as the porch's trim. Porch swing: Wayfair; Area rug: World Market; Blanket: Memento Style

Front Porch With Grill

One of the perks of this front porch makeover is that there's now space for a grill. Next to it, a bar cart has all the ingredients for cocktail hour as well as a plant or two. Bar cart: Target
