sneak peek best of: front doors

by Grace Bonney

this summer anne, amy and i have been spending a good chunk of time re-tagging design*sponge’s hundreds of archived sneak peeks so they’ll be more search-able when the redesign launches. after having so much fun re-living some of the peeks from years passed (we’ve posted over 500 now, yipes!) we thought it would be great to share some of our favorite “best of” picks, ranging from exteriors and porches to bedrooms, kitchens, kids rooms, and even great pet shots. we’ll be sharing our roundups throughout the summer, and today i could think of no better way to kick things off than with a look at the front of our favorite homes- front doors! i’ve chosen 25 of my favorite front doors, and i hope they’ll inspire you (and welcome you!) as much as they have for me.
