Painted interior doors...

A few years back I noticed a trend, as we all did, in painted interior doors. Growing up I never paid any attention to interior decor let alone doors. It seems I can't get enough of them. Is it a trend? Is it here to stay? Has it been here all along, and I'm just noticing now?

Black is my choice for painted interior doors. If you're thinking about taking the plunge, but
find yourself hesitating, try starting with your front door.

I like black doors!

Still doubting? Look at the image above. Would it have the same impact in white?

Here's a fearless use of color to make this room feel like your living in pop art.

Pink doors.

Could you?
 I could!

Above is a photo of my painted doors. Seeing that my floors are 
an earth colored slate, with a heavy green tone, black was
way to harsh. Instead I opted for a very, very, dark green/black.
It looks black in the photo, but our eyes read it as much softer and it's
more complimentary in person.

Thanks for stopping in,

  2. Thank you! It's hard when you live in a production home to make it stylish and chic! I've always said " a can of paint can change your life". I find it true....
