If you follow me on Instagram, you might have seen this gorgeous, “woven” gate.
This wooden gate from the Dorland Company caught my eye and started me thinking about how the front door isn’t always the first impression your home makes…. Sometimes it is the front gate.
A gate’s design provides a hint of what to expect in the home. Is it modern? Traditional? Contemporary? This lovely warm contemporary compound in Santa Monica Canyon uses natural materials throughout the home, so the fence and gate are incorporate the same wood tones all the way to the curb.
This modern take on a classic pattern features rusted steel in 2×6 strips wraps around itself in an elongated Greek Key pattern.
How about a pop of color?
This charming wooden gate in Santa Monica is anything but ho-hum.
This lovely wooden gate’s design stands alone but still manages to put a spotlight on the home’s beautiful porch and front door.
Does your home have a gate? Are you inspired to get a new one?
