I finally explored Houzz and there are some great images and inspiration there..be sure and check it out..for now, a few of my faves below!
I first saw the idea of shelves around a door years ago in Traditional Home, it was a dining room..i have never forgotten..wish I had that image, but this one is pretty great too! I would have done books above the door instead of the leaded glass but that is just me;
And I have posted before about my love for old signs, I would love to find an old one that says “grocery” or “city cafe.” Authentic and worn like this one.
yum…dark ceilings and check floors. I love check floors. AND THAT GREEN DOOR. I nearly painted the back of my front door an apple green when Drew was a baby because I spent so much time sitting in a certain kitchen chair feeding him and staring at the back of the front door. More recently, I am trying to talk a client into painting the back of an interior door in her bedroom that is front and center. It really does add interest and drama. Notice how the trim around the door is white not the green but the door “jam”/inside is the green.
