Design Inspiration Friday: Painted Interior Doors

Many designers paint their interior doors a color or black because it gives the room and door a more sophisticated look. The idea really harks back to old historical homes. When I think of painted doors I think of black doors in pre-war London, Colonial times, or Jane Austin time period. I recently painted our front door on the inside a black and it's made a big difference (I'll show you soon). I plan on painting more doors in our home and rounded up some beautiful examples.
Even painting the trim around a white door gives a room a richer look.

Jenny transformed a plain door by adding molding and then painting the whole thing a bright yellow. Genius!

love the yellow door
I really love the element of a surprise of color. This pocket door looks amazing with the rug and the gray tones in the kitchen.
White Walls, Wood Floor, Black Doors
I've seen a lot of black millwork painted around doors and think this is an amazing look too without it being too dark since there are all the window panes.

  1. Great inspiration, Tracy - I love that nailhead trim!

  2. These are great sets of doors, Tracy! I also read that in Feng Shui, once you paint your front door color red it can give the family prosperity, happiness and good fortune. Sweet, right? It’s amazing how colors can turn a simple door into a sophisticated one. Thanks for sharing!
