When we think about a painted door, the front door is usually the most obvious one that comes to mind.  A painted front door is a great way to make a statement and creating a welcoming feel when guests arrive.  Painting our internal doors, is a different story altogether, as not many of us would even consider it.   I recently came across a few fabulously funky doors, so have a look at the possibilities!

yellow greay and blue triangular patterned door

This door is hidden behind shapes that extend out to the wall.  In doing this, the whole area becomes a feature wall that makes the room appear a lot bigger.

Even an ordinary closet door can become a work of art by applying a few shapes and the right colour combination.

Play it safe with black and white, always elegant, fashionable and eye catching.

blue and yellow pastels barn door

Who said a barn door needs to be stained timber?  A beautiful piece of art created to be effectively utilised as a door.  Great talking point!

I adore the use of pattern to create this harmonious look;  allowing the eye to travel upwards to the top of the staircase.

What it the most adventurous colour you’ve ever painted a door?

Cheerio ’til next time!
