Front Door Drama

I have such a thing for front doors. I’ve always wanted to do a coffee table book of just photographs of gorgeous front doors from around the world. I don’t really know why I feel so inspired by them, but I do. Perhaps because it’s the first hint of what kind of decor and style is to be found inside the home? Your front door (and the surrounding area) can be a great place to express yourself. I tried doing a bold front door when we bought our house (also referred to as The McDonald’s Door Incident) and failed miserably. But as of late I’m tempted to try again with another color. So for inspiration, here are a slew of great door colors to consider and I’ll suggest some tips for picking a color at the bottom!

A Boathouse of One’s Own.

You really should go out and pick up the new House Beautiful if you don’t have one already.  It’s the small spaces issue, which in my opinion, is always one of their best every year! And in this issue one particular space made me just freak out.  It’s a tiny boat house on Nantucket designed by the Boston-based designer Gary McBournie. Let me say that this is simply the owner’s boathouse- used for entertaining after boating and sometimes to house some of the crew. They have a large house in town that they actually live in. I mean….I would be over the moon to just have this tiny house as my vacation house! This is a prime example of #lifeaintfair. :)

A Renovation I’m Dying to See

I read yesterday that actress Michelle Williams has bought this HUGE historic home in Brooklyn, NY that is in dire need of a major renovations- and I for one can’t wait to see what she does with it!  This home is more grand than I personally would want for myself, but I love the insane architectural details and grand rooms.

Gotta get rid of that hideous siding and return it to white clapboard (in my opinion).

Look at that front door!

Now, the current decor is quite the eyesore- but can’t you see the potential?? Or can you not? It’s interesting that some people can visualize a room wiped of dated decor and see what it COULD be and some who cannot (and those people are always on HGTV).

Kips Bay Showhouse

Last week I had a couple meetings in NYC and so I got the chance to stop by the Kips Bay Decorator’s Showhouse and check out what the designers had done this year.  I have to say, the most breathtaking, amazing work was done in the spiral staircase running the entire height of the five floor townhome.  Every inch was hung gallery wall style over a beautiful grey and white wallpaper and it was STUNNING.  Done by Philip Mitchell Design, it was, hands-down, my favorite space in the whole house.  Take a peek…

Obsessed with the mix of art- abstract, landscape, photography…you name it, it looks amazing all mixed together.

This was a HUGE job as this staircase was insane.
