Love these plants for the front planter box - create a sense of privacy at the front door. Shade loving container gardening, planters for front porch, ferns, hydrangea and sweet potato vine. Gorgeous and welcoming.
Looks like my house - idea for trimming shiplap around my windows and transoms White horizontal paneling, in that cave of a mudroom. This would be inviting and look very pretty with your door knob hanger.
