Sometimes we can be so focused on making our rooms spectacular, that we often forget to lavish attention on one of the key features; the door.
Often seen as just a connecting device between two adjoining rooms, the door is actually something that can have a dramatic effect upon the way you see your interiors.
This boldly painted door illustrates the power that a bit of imagination can have in drastically altering the mood of a room. The vibrant use of colour is a great way to introduce different shades without changing the feel of the room itself. And by painting the inner edge a contrasting shade, it carefully complements the poster on the wall in a surprising and playful fashion.
Whereas this door is given depth through each area being assigned a different and complementary colour tone that is continued on the wall, and makes the door so much more than being merely functional!
And why have just one door, when you can have two! These beautifully distressed double doors with frosted glass are a perfectly enticing entrance to the chic bathroom. And the black paint job is made so much more lush by the bright white walls!
Sometimes you’ll just want to keep on painting regardless of where the door stops, which is what must have happened in this room below. The striking pattern extends playfully from the eye-hole, over the door trim and makes the whole doorway seem larger than life!
However, one thing we know is that if in doubt, return to white. As shown in this excellently styled Scandinavian interior that paints its double doors a beautifully soft white that melts into the walls and provides a clean and effortless gateway into the next room.
