Decor Inspiration: A Grand Entrance...

Morning Everyone!
Today I've gone from talking about black clothes to black doors! This was helped along greatly by the arrival yesterday afternoon of a gorgeous glossy brochure on our front mat :) It featured all kinds of stylish new front doors !! I was immediately thinking up lots of ways I could convince hubs we need one badly! Fell on deaf ears I think but anyhow it gave me some lovely inspiration, and here are some fab photos I found via Pinterest ...


The simple green plants enhance the plain black door and white walls...



This black door really stands out amongst the gorgeous stonework and planting...



Loving the black with the gold decor touches here....



Glass panels in this door throw lots of light into the already spacious hallway...

I think you will agree a black door looks very classy and it lends itself well to decorating around the festive period as well! A pot of good paint, new plants and a few well chosen lights can all add a lot to make an entrance more attractive!

Enjoy your day!

  1. Love the first picture. Front doors are so expensive though, Hubs might take a bit of convincing!

  7. My front door is exactly like the second picture. When we first moved in about 2 years ago i hated it. I felt like everyone could see right in and know what we were up too. I put a wreath up and I love it!! Now I am addicted to all the sunlight that streams in!!

  17. Gorgeous. Especially the first one. Can't beat a couple of topiaries to add serious style .. and you're quite right, these doors would look beautiful when adorned with a festive wreath!

  19. I was just pondering the other day about what our front door on the inside would look like black. How ironic! Great pictures....I think they all look nice. So neat how some paint and/or some pretty greenery can sure make a difference, huh?!

    Hope you are having a great week, Anne!

  20. Anne,
    I have always had a thing for front doors. These remind me of my front door, as it is black also. Nel just made some Irish stew and posted about it. I thought you might like it since you're my dear Irish bloggy friend.

  21. We have a black front door and grey flagstones leading up to it. A verandah goes over the top along the front of the house. Sounds lovely, but the paint is peeling, the kids dump their scooters by the door , the shavings from the guinea pigs collect in a heap. You have inspired me to give it a lick of paint and tidy up!!!

  23. Anne,
    Loved this! I used to have a black door at my old home and loved it! It was especially pretty for Halloween, Christmas holidays and all the wreaths. My husband thought I was crazy when I first did it. It was a boring beige before. It really gave a lot of curb appeal.

    Have a great weekend!
