Wenn's zur Architektur des Hauses passt und zu dem, was sich vor dem Haus befindet, finde ich diese Tueren super. Das kleine Toepferhaus im letzten Bild ist sehr charmant!

@jtaylo7 - I think the color on the darker colored wing chair, as well as the throw pillows on the sofa, are the direction to go - some kind of deep gray or taupe. Friendly but elegant, it would blend well with the gray tones in the brick and the mortar.

My neighbor used a stock beadboard from Lowes and it did not hold up well. After 5 yrs, she ended up replacing her beadboard with tile. However, I have had it in my own personal bathroom (over two years now) and it's holding up great! I purchased my beadboard from Nantucket Beadboard (www.beadboard.com). I got their MRI-TM material which is a premium grade, moisture resistant fiberboard. I also got it pre-primed and painted in myself. Here's a photo of my bathroom here on Houzz.
