Interior Black Doors

After seeing Carmel from Our Fifth House share her black interior doors-I can’t get it out of my head! They turned out beautiful!  So I contacted my sweet blogging friend Kristy from Hyphen Interiors, who happens to work magic with her mad photoshop skills and asked her to “make my door black”.



So what do you think??  I was worried the white shutters would look weird with the black door, but I actually kind of like it.  Now to convince the hubs…….. Of course once I jump on this black door thing everyone will probably be moving back to white doors & the black will be soooo last year.

    Love it! Looks great! 🙂

  2. That looks awesome! Nice work!

  3. I’ve painted two of my interior doors black, and just bought the paint to do the rest! My front and back door have been black (my trim is white too) for well over a year and I still love it so much! I think the contrast really steps up the style factor. Your mock-up looks fantastic!

  4. I love the contrast with the shutters…looks very crisp! We recently painted all our exterior doors black (outside and inside)and have white trim too. I love the look and now I can’t see the kiddo’s dirty finger prints all over the doors anymore!

  5. Love love love the black door. Cassie at Hi Sugarplum has one too and it looks smokin’ hot. We have a dark stained wood door which provides a lot of contrast next to our white plantation shutters- I love it every day! Do it, do it, do it! : )

  6. I like it and I think it’s bold. I also think the contrast makes the white shutters really POP! Go for it! It’s only paint!

  7. I love it! I just thought….I’m totally doing that…then realized our front & back doors are already black. Ha! Who knew? 😉

    I love it…in the middle of a huge remodel and have been considering painting ours black when it all over and done with. follow me on wordpress and see what I ultimately decide

  9. paint it!! i painted the inside of our front door black (check my entrance hall pic in the house tour) — love it! only suggestion i have is to not go solid, pure black. It tends to get cold. I’m thinking of repainting with a little more warmth and charcoal. Also, if your door gets all day sun, it can be hotter to the touch with the black, and could bubble. Just passing along what I’ve picked up! 🙂

    I did the black door thing a couple of years ago and I absolutely love it.(actually I painted my office/library door black chalkboard about 5 years ago) I don’t think I’ll care if the trend swings back to white 🙂 The doors downstairs are black satin and upstairs the doors are black chalkboard paint and we can write each other messages, welcome notes on the guest bedroom doors, etc. It is such fun. Try it, you’ll like it! marcie

    I was thinking about doing the same thing to our front door — both inside and out! Our set up is similar with the windows on both sides. I am going to pull the trigger! Now I just need to find the perfect color!

  14. Haha! Just saw the mock up I did. Cool – love to hear what other say. I love it! It adds a lot to the space.
