While we are always blown away by the incredible way that interior designers can transform the inside of any building, sometimes, it's nice to be able to step back and appreciate the work of talented architects as well, from the outside! Spectacular inside spaces are one thing and gorgeous gardens are terrific too, but to really drink in design genius to the max, you need to admire home entrances, which is why we're going to show you 36 that we find utterly beguiling, right now! If you are on the lookout for some entrance inspiration, you're going to find more than you could ever dream of in this article, so how about we get started?

2. Stone clad walls are impossible to forget!
