I often like to start off the day with an early morning walk to take in all of the beauty and design that surrounds us. I love to stumble across luring entry gates; it is interesting to see how people treat the openings to their private estates. Whether grand or simple, an entrance is the perfect opportunity to add a dose of intrigue or drama to a home.

A dramatic iron gate adds protection and curiosity.

The overhanging trees allow a protective, gate-like, covering to this quaint entry.

There is something inviting about a white fence; it’s so peaceful.

This clever little mailbox caught my eye.  Do you think it’s a replica of what’s beyond the gate?

This final home took a modern approach on the timeless white picket fence.

Take a morning stroll around your neighborhood and let me know what type of entries or gates you find.  What intrigues you?
