It is amazing how trailing flowers can add a sense of romance to any spot. Here, the simple and symmetrical entrance of this Mediterranean home is softened by the Clematis, cascading from the front porch in pink swathes delicately swaying in the summer breeze. Similarly, the ancient terra cotta urns, placed on each side of the porch, and featuring clipped boxwood, are smothered by spilling ribbons of tiny white flowers. A wonderful way to add casual elegance and charm to this stunning doorway.
