5 festive front doors in Calgary

The first impression of your home isn't forged in the foyer – it's set from the street. This winter, boost curbside charm by taking cues from homeowners in Calgary's tony Mount Royal neighbourhood. Decked out with fresh greenery, inspired container arrangements and statement-making wreaths, their beautifully decorated front doors serve as templates for celebrating the season in style.

What's better than a pair of planters flanking a doorway? Well, four, of course! And when they're as big and bountiful as Ann Calvert's festive containers, there's really no need for a wreath. Made from zinc, the tall planters have a charming vintage patina that's perfectly suited to the home's stately mix of traditional Lutyens and Arts and Crafts styles.
