clas­sic red

A door that pops gives this pretty porch invit­ing rus­tic ap­peal.

1. Pa­tri­otic Punch

Sur­rounded by orig­i­nal brick­work and framed in black, the red front door of this Toronto home takes cen­tre stage. The bright hue is proudly Cana­dian and, when paired with brushed nickel hard­ware, takes on a modern look.

2. Tiny Twigs

When the door makes a state­ment on its own, a sub­dued adorn­ment is the way to go. A rus­tic twig wreath em­bel­lished with play­ful plaid rib­bon en­hances the stoop’s win­try style and adds whimsy without clash­ing or tak­ing over.

3. Green Gar­nishes

A gar­land graces the porch rail­ings and is met by a tall planter at the bot­tom of the stairs – it’s lush and won­der­fully stylish.

4. Bold Bucket

A care­free gath­er­ing of win­ter greens ar­ranged in a folksy scar­let bucket makes for a coun­try-chic dis­play.

5. Sweet Sips

There’s no bet­ter way to keep warm out­doors than bundling up and sip­ping de­li­cious hot choco­late. This sweet pre­sen­ta­tion is ut­terly tempt­ing for kids and adults alike. Mini marsh­mal­lows, any­one?

6. Coun­try Com­forts

Clas­si­cally rus­tic Muskoka chairs lend cot­tagey ap­peal and pro­vide the ul­ti­mate spot to lean back and re­lax al­fresco. Cana­di­ana-themed toss cush­ions of­fer a play­ful nod to our na­tion.
