Are these custom made doors? - I have a stone house with a small front door and sidelights...I cannot get this door out of my head...I want it for my house, or something similar. Where is it from? I live in Ontario, Canada.

i am likely going to be choosing maibec/bleaching oil for my home. do you happen to know how soon after installation this picture was taken? my understanding is that the color changes over time, so would be interesting to see more recent pictures to understand how it has weathered over time

What Houzz contributors are saying:

"We were inspired by Boston's Back Bay and South End neighborhoods with their black trim and ornate cornice work, and the classic water-front shingle style," says LDa's principal architect Douglas Dick. "The goal was to create a more tailored and less casual overall effect."
Bold gestures and oversized elements, especially at the entrance and porches, add to a Shingle-style home's grandness. See more of this house
Becky Harris added this to Fresh Start: Paint the Front Door
Black: Glossy black lets everyone know that this is not your average beach house. It accentuates all of the trim in an unexpected away, right down to the studded black doors.See the rest of this home
Like planting outlines of ground cover in a patio or training vines to frame a window or door, the color you choose for a home's exterior trim can dramatically alter its appearance for the better. The use of glossy black to emphasize the beautiful millwork and oval window on this home is inspired. Consider how to use the positive-negative shapes of your architecture to create a similar effect.More:Old-School Design: Frame Your Garden View
