We rarely have the opportunity to make a good first impression twice… In any case, that’s what we can say to ourselves when decorating the entrance to the house. And it is mainly a question of dosage according to your tastes and the style of your home: many colors or not, more or less flowering plants, structured or bucolic atmosphere… Which of these inspirations will you favor?

1. A flower crown

The crown is not the prerogative of the winter season! On the contrary, it can even be a pleasant surprise at other times of the year. Made of fresh or dried flowers, it brings a romantic and poetic touch .

2. Minimalist

Perfect for those who want a bit of greenery without spending too much time in the garden. Boxwood is a safe bet and is a simple and sober way to structure your entrance.
