the door was beautifully made by some local artisans....the diagonal wood piece is lighter than the rest of the door boards, and purely decorative on each side.... and doesn't affect the functionality of the door or how it will age. Also, the entire door is a lightweight pine.

No offence, but this is not a door built by professionals. There are fill marks all over the surface where nailed/screwed. The bracing, whilst it may not be structurally necessary for this particular door, is not just a decorative detail. Bracing on such a door is part of its historical functional design, it's to do with how load is transferred from the outer edge of the door to the inner to prevent the door dropping over time. It's all about making a quality door, honest in its design details.

Hi Elaine,
You could order the Arlington Sconce here to achieve a similar look, and even opt for a different finish!

the lights were from Lowes, but yes you can also purchase the one above from Barn Light Electric (and they're a better quality)

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Harris added this to Houzz Tour: Warm Country Charm
Continuing the thread of a touch of country in the new addition, custom knotty pine barn doors were used in Luke's room. This one opens to a small office off his room.
Shawn Gauthier added this to Your Doors: Make a Grand Entrance
Mix the rustic with the relevant by using barn doors in your home. You can either have one custom made with a specific wood species of your choice, or go hunting through flea markets or salvage yards for a door you can refurbish at little cost.
Scheer & Co. added this to How to Jazz Up a Solid-Front Door
Go for a different approach with a basic door: Strip it down (or keep it in, or close to, its natural state) to highlight the structure of the door or a nice wood.
Jen Jafarzadeh L'Italien added this to Natural Beauty: Gorgeous, Unpainted Wood Doors
This unstained wood door was custom-built and inspired by barn doors. It feels less like a barn door since it's hinged to the doorway rather than being a sliding door.Tip: Furniture maker Cliff Spencer is one source for getting your very own custom-built wood barn door.
Becky Harris added this to Renewed Classic: Gooseneck Barn Lights
A simple barn light adds a rustic feel, yet its industrial look is inherently modern. It's a great choice for modern country, cottage, new traditional and transitional styles.
Tiffany Carboni added this to Over-the-Door Shelves Offer Sneaky Storage
Trophies have a tendency to take up precious bookcase space, and their awkward, pointed shapes can make them painful on a desk. Give that oversize collection its own place where it can be admired without endangering anyone. Again, make sure each trophy is secured, so a slammed door won't turn any into a projectile.
