The whole world is a play! When you get an entrance right like any of these, with such a strong sense of invitation, one is drawn in. Even the dark green gates, you want to know what is behind. Such beauty, such poise, such high art in all of them, rustic country cottage to imposing town house.
And this beauty is very much made on purpose and understood and definitely not an accident! Good design!!
