Are you in the mood for a dramatic change, something that won’t break your budget but will still give you that sudden jolt, that renewed feeling around your house?
What about a Black Door? According to Feng Shui theory, you should definitely consider a black door if your home is facing North. You can read more about this here.
Black doors look elegant and make a beautiful backdrop to those seasonal wreaths you have. I love the colors of this green boxwood against the black wood.
Do you already have a black front door? According to this quiz on blogthings, a black door personality is one that is elegant, fashionable, likes power, and can be hard to know. Does this sound like You?
Wow, how about these front doors? Look how fresh and clean this entry looks. Can someone please make my house look this tidy?
Now this is starting to look like Home. Someone left the door open, the flies are getting in, and there are random shoes left in odd places. But, I sure love those bohemian-looking colors behind the door.

If you’re still hesitant about taking the bold step with a black front door, you can always find a place inside your home to experiment. Painting inexpensive interior doors makes a strong impact. Very chic.

I especially love black when it’s paired with white.

Hey, what about the pantry door? (Now if only I had one)
Do you have any boring closet doors that need sprucing up? Only I’m not sure about that high gloss, what do you think?
Ok. Here’s my version, in my own humble abode. Only, I wish I could find my Before photo with the white French doors…but this is all I have…
…a quick shot after I painted them black, only with my home’s old golden wall color.
Final photo: My Entry Way (with my black doors)
My last step was to add some Beadboard in the entrance to establish more of a separate space, (yes, I have one of those open floor plans) and a coat of white paint so that my black doors would really pop. That’s it. And I have noticed a difference, besides the visual change.
I like the feeling I get when I sit in my office and look through these doors now, it actually adds a calming effect. Really.
What do you think? Have I convinced you about the allure and drama of the color black?
I hope I gave you some ideas….Have a wonderful day, friends, more later.
