Wreaths are never a no go.  They are perfect at any time of year and they are all a front door or entrance needs, nothing better IMO.

There are even seasonal wreath subscription services where every 3-4 months you are shipped a new, season appropriate wreath.  

If you do the wreaths I’d skip the sign so it dies t become too busy.  The wreaths alone are enough and tasteful.  But flanking lanterns/scones would be nice.

A seasonally-appropriate wreath is always a good choice! I prefer to keep my paint scheme neutral and jazz it up with bright accessories. I’m also a fan of symmetry so that first photo makes me giddy.

We have 3 wreaths that I rotate on our front doors, Xmas/winter, fall and spring/summer.  We have double doors too, but only put one on the stationary door.

I would look into Feng Shui principles and do something that supports energy flow (but I’m always looking for ways to support energy flow).

I just did some stuff for my entryway and a few of the pointers I found said you should look for a great new welcome mat that is the width of your entryway. It also mentioned putting plants or something on either side of the door for symmetry and balance. We also put up a windchime since we live in an area with pretty regular wind/breezes.

Speaking of wind- that welcome sign is cute- do you have to worry about wind blowing it over?

I love two wreaths on black/greenblack front doors.

Since you have double dooors, I also love wrought iron planters on either side with a shaped small bush or tree you can put lights in over the holidays and underplant for the warmer months to add color and look good year round.

I dunno what’s typical, but that’s just what we do.   This is my spring/summer wreath.

Wreaths on the door all year must be US  thing ?  We only do them at Christmas here in Australia. Interesting…

I absolutely love wreaths. We have an embarrassing number of them.

Agree with PPs that you can just choose more summery ones.
