You've heard it said, you eat with your eyes first. We make judgments on if we will like something from our first glimpse at it. The same is true for our homes. When someone comes to our home for the first time, they make a judgment on what they think of our house based on the curb appeal.

In today's post, we'd love to provide you some helpful tips on creating breathtaking curb appeal. We've gathered together some gorgeous homes and think you'll feel inspired by their beauty.

Curb Appeal

So much makes up the perfect curb appeal. From the front door, to greenery and so much more.  Let's get to knocking on our first door because there's so much about it that's so inviting.

A welcome mat is a must at the front door.

Not just so that those who enter have a place to wipe off their shoes, but because it can say so much.

Welcome might be the wording on this mat, but take it all in.

The layering of rug and mat show an attention to detail and you get the feeling this home holds more beauty just beyond the front door.

Chell & Chad's home is beautiful!

Do those rocking chairs on the porch not make you want to sit down with a good friend and a cup of sweet tea and gossip the afternoon away?

The boxwood topiaries are also eye catching.

Jodie and Julie have a blog called The Design Twins. This is Jodie's front door.

Hello classic black and white! What a beauty this is!

The way the crates create different heights adds a staggered dramatic effect. It allows the colors from the flowers to stand out in a lovely way.

“Welcome Y'all” is how we welcome friends here in the south.

Have you been to a painting party where you get to pick a door hanger?

This cute mason jar full of hydrangeas is one of those projects and makes this door look super inviting.

And boots with flowers guarantee an adorable farmhouse behind that front door.

Little Farmstead

We introduced Julie's home to you a few weeks back in our Chicken Nesting Boxes post.

In that post we saw the inside of her home, but we didn't get to set our eyes on the outside.

Don't you wish you could smell the fragrance through this picture?  These wisteria vines give off a breathtaking curb appeal for sure!
