This door is very similar but has more detail in the grooves. I like the one in this picture better. The simpler the better for me. Would love to know how to get it. I am ready to order today!

The trim around the door is sangria and the door itself is cottage red.

Sorry for the confusion. The trim around the door was custom colored to match the window trim. The windows are by Kolbe and are in their color called Basil. The color of the door is Sangria 2006-20. We originally tried Cottage Red but changed to the Sangria. When we referred to the color as Cottage Red when answering questions on Houzz we looked at an old note by mistake. The colors are similar and both work well to create a statement front door. I hope that clarifies things!

The house color is Benjamin Moore OC-120 SeaShell and yes, the color closest to the front door is E-22 Cottage Red. The trim was color matched from Kolbe windows color Basil.

It seems like such a simple feature, but having the right door on your home can have a huge statement. One of my friends put a big, solid, rustic looking door in his home and it changed the entire look of his home. It is pretty crazy what a huge difference a small change can make. Thanks for the picture. http://www.jandjbuildingproducts.ca/doors?page=shop.browse&category_id=4

Love the door, is it custom or can I order it online or with my contractor? I like the square sticking.

These great square pots are from a local artisan named Laird Plumleigh. He makes really beautiful pottery and tiles. He also made the beautiful backsplash in the kitchen of this home and the tiles at the fireplace as well. Here is his website so you can check out more of his work. His inventory is always changing: http://lairdplumleigh.com/products/pottery/

Hi, thanks for your inquiry. The lockset is the Wilshire Entry Set from Emtek. The exterior finish is oil rubbed bronze. We did a split finish for the hardware on the house. The exterior is all oil rubbed bronze which works well with the exterior colors, while the interior is all satin nickel which coordinates with the interior finishes.

Love the door and house. However, what kind of brick did you use? - We're doing a white house and trying to figure out white brick. I think we've decided on Georgian reclaimed. This looks a lot like it. The brick you used is lovely and I'm hoping it's either the same or similar. Thank you, Windy

Hi Windy,
There was an existing brick pathway here though it was narrower than the current one. We did rebuild the step at the front door also. The existing brick had been there for decades so had a nice worn look. The mason took several bricks to the brick yard and found a line of bricks that looked similar in color and size. Those were Bessemer style by Boral Brick Co. He chose several different colors from different batches to try to emulate the existing brick variety, then mixed them in with the old brick as he laid the new path and step.

The inside of the door is painted white to match the rest of the doors throughout the house. The exterior does not need to match the interior. Here is a photo of the door from the other side:

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Harris added this to Houzz Tour: Updates Honor a 1930s Cottage's History
When Teddy Roosevelt's post-presidency secretary built this home for his own retirement in 1936, the cottage was only 700 square feet; over the years, it had expanded to 1,300, and Gatling's renovation added an additional 600. The couple nixed the idea of a second floor; they want to grow old here, and there was not room for an elevator. They looked at many colors for the front door and found the perfect red in a Matisse painting at the Museum of Modern Art. Gatling had the paint custom-matched to Matisse's hue.
Annie Thornton added this to Photo Flip: 77 Front Doors to Welcome You Home
7. Red bromeliads, a walkway of aged brick and a warm red door add to this clean and classic front entry in San Diego. Door paint: Sangria, Benjamin Moore
