Knock Knock

Sunday, July 12, 2009 | Category: Decorating, Design Inspiration


Doors.  Let’s face it, we all go thru them day in and day out.  Whether it be the front door, the back door, the office door, the closet door, or even the revolving door (for good or bad).  A door is like “hello” – it’s the first impression one makes.  Why not make it the right impression?


I love this door (both doors!) – it’s so clean and bright and I love the paneling on the front door with the single digit and the door hardware.


These closet doors are just beautiful – with the light filtering in and the intricate detail.


Pretty blue and a nice proportion of glass panes with bottom paneling.


An easy DIY project for many doors – black, white, and mirrored.


Another door with detailed paneling and contrasting paint colors.


Such pretty closet (or linen) doors in this bathroom!


These cloet doors are painted a fun high gloss kelly green – a good fit for the detail on these doors.


Painted closet doors with wallpaper(or hand painted?) insets – very pretty.


Going metallic – doors and ceiling with the walled mirrors.


Old patina doors with European style doorknob.


Both the front gate and door entry are Art Deco in architectural style.


These big wide double doors make me think farmhouse with the x lower paneling and upper glass panes.


Wallpapering a room?  If it’s the right pattern then it’s great for the back of the door for a seamless look.


Another wallpapered door – this on a pair of closet doors.


Mirrored doors like these are great for a small room to expand the space – if you don’t mind all the reflection!


Intricate wood doors like these can be an eclectic addition to any home.  I have had clients find great doors while traveling and have them imported to be installed as a front door or even a separation of rooms such as in this photograph.


Last but not least, a beautiful pair of painted doors to adorn this hallway…along with a guard dog for whomever comes knocking!
