Awhile back we shared the most popular styles of windows, and readers loved it! So we thought it is only apt to go ahead and list our most beloved door designs. In today’s post, you will find wonderful selections that outline nature, play with contemporary contours, define industrial beauty, and most of all, establish signature personalities.
If you have no idea where to start in your home renovation, I would recommend you begin at the front steps of your house. While there might be dozens of decor ideas bouncing around your head, it is vitally important for you to key in on one. Building a home is much like piecing together a puzzle. In order to appreciate the grand picture, you need start with one little piece and follow through with the building momentum. And in the eyes of a designer, the front door is that first piece of a complex puzzle.
Back when chariots were the main mode of transportation, people did not have the option to choose the door that best represented their personal style. That was then, this is now. Today, there are so many door possibilities that we are often stuck with indecision, without a clue as to which selection would best complement our interior. To help remedy your designer’s block, I am going to share a few tips from my little black book of style!

Crossing The Divide
Whenever I’m a guest at someone’s home, the first thing I do is lock eyes with the backyard patio and garden. I like to see how my friends positioned their plants and patio furniture. With so much of the focus on small details, many of us forget how important it is to have a suitable gateway that connects the outside and inside environments.
