the door series: a craftsman teal dream

My file of amazing front doors is growing. I stumbled upon this beauty in the Apartment Therapy archives. It’s just one shot in an amazing house tour of Steve and Dana’s beautifully renovated craftsman house outside of Atlanta. (You must click through to see the rest!) What a wonderful idea — put a modern door on a classic house and give it a vivid hue. This one came from Crestview doors, which specializes in mod doors that belong on mid-century ranches. The color is the aptly named Tantalizing Teal by Sherwin Williams. What do you think: Would you put a modern door on your old house?

I’m all for putting a modern twist on anything, classic homes included. Small, bold design elements often breathe new life into old homes and clothing!

What a brilliant door design!

Upper window or grown-ups, lower window for kids and bottom window for doggie!

Everyone gets to look out and still retain some visual privacy. Could this be simply accidental?
