    it's difficult to see the detail due to the size of the picture, but I do love wrought iron and think its great you are trying to make a statement at your entrance. But I think with the oval window and the oblong one, there is too much vertical going on that is too similar in size. Maybe try some shelves (adding horizontals) and some greenery?? Or a very tall plant that is as high as the door. And then move that gorgeous iron artwork to a spot where it's not competing so much...

    I agree trying to figure out what wrought iron you are talking about with th eimage being so iti the large round piece?
  • I agree with the others that it is competing with the front door. How about a tall plant stand with a nice fern for that space and paint the door a color, a red maybe? I would make the front door the focal point.

    I would put a horizontal planter beside the door with differing heights of plants to offset and add weight to that side of the porch. The other idea is to add a wrought iron bench under the piece for the same reason it would add some weight to the bottom and extend the doors height. What I am trying to convey is that it is empty below the iron piece and the door is large. I would also paint the door another color so it yellow, soft pumpkin, medium apple green, or teal blue or your favorite color...

    I think you need to paint the door a more exciting color! and paint your trim...too white! With the front door a brighter or deeper color the piece won't compete with the door. Could the wrought iron piece be turned horizontally? I'm sorry--kind of hard to see.

    I would use an iron piece that has a ledge attached to insert potted flowers or greenery. If the space is large enough, I would add a decorative bench under the iron piece to break up some of the vertical symmetry.....the bench would bring in a horizontal design aspect.

    Another idea to add weight to the iron piece would be to add a large rectangular frame around the iron piece. I would also add the bench underneath.

    To distract from all the ovals I would mount the wrought iron piece onto some reclaimed wood. Maybe an old picket fence. Be sure its square and maybe paint it? To add some color? In my opion your front door would look amazing painted in an accent color.

    Or put all of this together...Paint the door, add a front to the cast iron to make it into a window box sort of thing, and a nice bench maybe the color of the door....

    I have this door minus the side light. Had painted it all green, husband and I did not like. I ended up just painting the oval on the door green to match my shutters with the door white. I also have green window flower boxes. I agree with the others about the bench or something to add interest. Do I see black at the top around the ceiling? How about black around the oval and a black wrought iron bench. Or....Red door to bring a pop and black wrought iron bench....The more I envision it I think I like that best!!Good luck!

    Keep the door! put a large collum on each side of the door. I would then put a slider in further down on the right and add some kind of red printed tile. A cute wooden chair would look awesome too
