The LBD - Little Black Door

The LBD makes every house a little bit better in my opinion. It adds architectural detail and glamour all at once. It's a staple for the exterior...

I would be the happiest girl in the world to come home to this front door everyday. Turquoise and black. Wish there were more front doors done the English way and less Northwest hippy dippy.
Or double french doors instead of the standard six panel or craftsman door.

Hello double french doors, pea gravel and topiaries. Heaven.
The door elevates the entire house.

This picture needs no explanation.







But black doors really add drama and dimension to an interior space.

Amazing doors to an even more amazing closet.


Even barn doors look better in black.

These black french doors (instead of the usual white) make the black and white kitchen less predictable and add warmth.

These Windsor Smith rooms need no introduction. Her use of strong dark navy or black makes a statement and adds great architectural detail to the rooms.

So what are you waiting for - grab that can of black glossy paint and start transforming your drab white into the LBD.

I think this is the best blog post I've ever seen, ever. LOVE it. I specify black doors, window, trim, etc whenever I can for myself and for clients. Stellar post! Thanks
