Our powder bath door
I'm loving my new dark doors.
I've talked about this subject here before. It is something that I frequently tell my clients to do to their doors to help with the 'builder-basic' plague.
I wanted black doors, a la Thomas O'Brien, for my home and had my husband promptly paint ALL of the downstairs doors black. We set up a "paint room" in the garage that somewhat resembled a Dexter 'kill room'. My sweet husband painted all of those doors black and had them all ready to install in the house. Meanwhile, I was checking in on my Austin project, which I specified a dark door color for, and the minute I saw the color I picked for her doors I wanted it too and immediately thought "I have to change the color, like now, and Frank is going to kill me...and he's already got a kill room set up!". Soo, I got home that evening and politely told him that I wanted to change the color, which was followed by a laugh from him, because that is the sort of thing you would joke about after someone has been painting for 3 days! I then received a blank stare for what felt like a full minute and a loud sigh. I'm pregnant, so I get a lot of sympathy these days. Well, the doors are no longer black, they are a beautiful deep browny-black color and I loooove them! Thanks babe! ;-)
The door to our pantry
Our bathroom off of the sink area
What do you think? Do you love them as much as I do?
Speaking of our bathroom...I realize I keep promising those who are asking to show more of my own home and never do :-/. Designers are so much more critical of their own spaces, and they also are rarely "complete". Here are some details of our bath. I had to clean it up to show you the doors so I thought I would throw these in :-)
I will be posting 'my nursery journal' soon. I'm the worst. I haven't committed to a single thing for the nursery yet!...and I'm 6 1/2 months! I've ordered several swatches of fabric that hopefully will inspire me. The thing about being a designer is...your own home usually gets pushed back behind client's. I'm beginning the process though, and will document it here...if you are interested :-)
Happy 'What I'm Loving' Wednesday!
