Thus the homey |>oet epitomized the traditional American spirit of lateh-slring hospitality. Americans long have - prided themselves on a heritage of cordial nclghborllness, yet many of us have allowed our doorways to become actually uninviting — mute repudiations of our doormat slogans. Here in California, particularly, we arc breaking faith with the founding fathers, for hospitality and inviting architecture of early California arc legend. .You've never seen an uninviting doorway In a California mission or in one of our the front door early homes.

If you stopped to analyze these doorways you'd discover It is the little things that lend a note of nformal cordiality— a recri-bottom- ed chair placed conveniently neai by, ^a reverent figurine set quietly on a coiner shelf, big hinges boldly embracing a timbered door, a ring of copper keys hunj; carelessly aside, a candle lamp beside the staircase door, dccals, bright panels an entwining plant atop the lintel These are the simple things that extend a welcoming hand HirougV a doorway.

No place In the home is there an opportunity for dramatization nnd an emphasis upon our personal whims and hobbies as In our doorways, niid'-.j'ct they are the most abused and neglected portion of mast households. For front ciooi's the possibilities arc limitless. Beginning on the outside, you can add real individuality with some bright paint and a little courage. Paint the panels a daring color, or different colors if you're really a nonconformist. Cut a border stencil or buy one at the dime store and go to work on a fancy border In contrasting colors. Have you thought of the possibility of lettering your initials on the door — the first in the. upper left corner and the other In ihe lower right?

Antique lamps hung over or to the side of your front doors, of course, are old stand-bys, as are artistic hingeplates.
