Style Secret: Barn-Inspired ElementsRemember your mom scolding you about whether you were born in a barn? She may have been onto something. Not only are sliding barn doors, Dutch doors and other details borrowed from outbuildings ultrafunctional, they feel apt and appropriate with rustic style. Inspired addition: These doors already are showy, so this is your chance to have a little fun with hardware. Choose a dramatic rail treatment for a sliding barn door or oversize, shapely hinges for a Dutch door. If you really want to make them stand out, paint or stain the doors in a color that contrasts with the walls.
I love this idea. The sliding wood door is made of unstained reclaimed wood, and it's set against a wall paneled with the same reclaimed wood. So this barn door blends in, making the wall and door look like one visual element.
