Stylish Craftsman Front Doors
Many Craftsman-style homes are fairly neutral in color scheme and material selection, so a front door can be used to offer contrast. Here, bright turquoise offers a stamp of vivid color to this front door, styled with the multiple window panes of the style's signature doors.
Tried-and-true details add an extra-special touch to this lovely Craftsman-style home, including wood accents on the stucco face, tapered columns, and exposed rafter tails.

All About the Accents
