Rocky Ledge Entry with View

We have gotten many questions about the stairs: They were custom designed and built in place by the builder - and are not available commercially. The entry doors were also custom made. The floors are constructed of a baked white oak surface-treated with an ebony analine dye. The stair handrails are painted black with a polyurethane top coat.

I'm not sure about the floors, but Benjamin Moore's Decorators White is a similar color to the walls and trim.

I love the newell post. It is custom and if so where was it made? Or any suggestions where to find similar ones.

A local woodworker could turn a similar custom newel post for you.

any custom door company could make the doors - just be prepared for sticker shock when you buy the clavos.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

The clients love visiting the One&Only Palmilla resort in Mexico, and gave the team an inspiration photo of some of the studded doors at the resort. This technique was used on several doors throughout the house, including those on the carriage-style front entry. The general style of these doors is very similar to those on more traditional shingle homes, with additional dramatic detailing. Doors: Custom, solid mahoganyRug: Steven KingSide table: Furniture Guild
Lisa Frederick added this to Great Materials: Warm, Wonderful Pewter
Pewter nailheads in a bold pattern define a pair of black doors and set the tone for what lies beyond.
Scheer & Co. added this to 16 Dream Doors
These custom solid mahogany doors by Blue Anchor Millwork have been embellished with custom bronze nail heads, which really makes these showstoppers.
Shawn Gauthier added this to Add a Metallic Edge with Nailhead Trim
Feel free to take nailheads out of their upholstery comfort zone as well. What an incredibly chic application on these front doors!
Becky Harris added this to 5 Smashing Black and White Homes
1. An oceanfront house in Massachusetts. Upon entering this striking oceanside home north of Boston, one immediately knows that LDA Architecture and Interiors has not designed a typical beach house.
Trend twist: Decorating the doors. Whether with carvings, door knockers, leather or upholstry nails, doors make a strong statement in the film, and the same pair of doors helped us make the jumps from set to set.
Play off a staircase's varying heights. This tablescape gives the eyes a lot of places to rest. From the gourd-shaped base to the tops of the stems, it fits into the staggered stairs behind it.
Studly. The studded doors at a resort in Mexico inspired these custom-made doors in a Massachusetts coastal home.

By now everyone knows that it's pretty easy and inexpensive to switch up the look of a room by changing out throw pillow covers, a lamp or two, artwork and a rug. However, to pull this off you need a versatile base. Using black and white as a base makes these switch-ups very easy and is visually striking. Get ideas for how to do this from these five houses that use black and white as a starting point. 1.
