Curb Appeal: The Front Door
As a designer, one of the first things I'll direct my attention to is the front door. Is it a standard issue model or does it pop? Does it connect the exterior to the interior and tell something about your personality in the process? For little investment,...
Material Choices: Translucent Glass Doors
Sometimes in a space you'll need some separation, but a solid door is too much. A translucent glass door can divide space and provide ample privacy while keeping a more open feeling and letting in natural light. Here are some beautiful examples, from...
DIY Project: Upgrade That Ugly Door!
My photographer friend Christina had me over to her house recently. Naturally, she inquired as to any ideas I could offer to make her home a bit nicer. Upon entry, I wanted to say, "Well, you can start by tossing those nasty hollow-core doors out the...
Idea of the Week: Upholster a Door
This week's Houzz Tour from Lisa Borgnes-Giramonti had no shortage of inspirational ideas. In fact, narrowing it down to just one for our Idea of the Week was the real issue. But in the end, her faux-leather-clad door was the feature we all couldn't stop...
Houzz Tour: When MoMA is Your Next Door Neighbor
When Interior Designer Kristen Rivoli first visited this apartment in Cesar Pelli’s Museum Tower, it had not been renovated since it was constructed in the early 1980s. Her client is a mother of three who took over her family’s Manhattan pied-a-terre....
Automotive-Related Architecture: Modern Garage Doors
My 1955 Mid-Century modern ranch has a carport versus a garage, but when I was in the market as a house hunter, I couldn't help but get excited about choosing a retro home with a retro-modern garage door. There's something super sleek and sophisticated...
Design 2011: Black Casework, Doors and Cabinetry
We all know that black is one of the most sophisticated of colors, but for light-starved people, it's often written off as too dark for airy interiors. Last year we embraced "almost black" walls, but for 2011 I believe we will flip flop to adore black...
French Doors: Ooh La La
If you’re looking to make a grander entrance into your space, look to French doors. Both beautiful and practical, French doors allow an elegant path between two rooms. With double adjoining doors inlaid with glass, this beautiful addition opens from...
Dutch Doors: Charming and Versatile
Maybe it's from all those childhood days of watching Mr. Ed talking to Wilbur through the top half of his stable door. Whatever it is, one thing is for sure: Americans have a fondness for the Dutch door. The Dutch door (also referred to as a stable,...
Barn Doors: They're Not Just for the Farm
When was the last time you looked at a barn? I mean really looked at a barn? They are lovely structures. Simple. Rustic. Industrial. Charming in their own way. So why not bring some of that simple, rustic, industrial charm into your living space? No,...
Painted Front Doors With Personality To Spare
Lately there seems to be a buzz on the street about brightly painted front doors. There are few limitations about what color can be used (unless you have an HOA like my neighborhood) and homeowners and builders are taking full advantage of this trend....
Through The Front Door
Through various conversations I've recently had about curb appeal (and did you check out the recent ideabook on the topic?) I've thought about front doors. Literally the gateway into a home, the front is what onlookers see first from the curb, and the...
Make an Immediate Impression with a Great Front Door
The front door of your home is a place that you may or may not pay a lot of attention to. The people who come to your home won't necessarily notice it. However if you do choose to make your door stand out then they will certainly pay attention to it....
Magnifique French Doors
I was inspired by apartmenttherapy's coverage of Rainn Wilson's (Dwight on The Office) Home Office Man Cave, and the enormous window coverage throughout the room. The simple and often understated, unnoticed, affect that windows, especially French doors,...
Glass Act: Windows & Doors
If there is one thing you should NEVER cheap out on, it's windows & doors. Cheap versions will cost you in energy expenses, and will cheapen the look of your entire facade, inside and out. I'm not saying you have to go all Marc Chagall stained glass or...
