Be inspired by your travels. "My inspiration for this carved front door came from my travels in Paris," says Marie Meko of Gabberts Design Studio. "I truly enjoy walking the streets of the city because I get so energized and inspired by everything I see. Among the great hidden treasures are all the sumptuous and still private Left Bank residences. One of the most memorable things for me is the incredible wooden doors that line the streets. They're intricately carved and wonderfully detailed, and make you long to see what's on the other side."
