I don't know if you've already heard, but David Erwin (over at Erwin House) has started a business that sells 1950s-inspired doors called Crestview Doors. Until now, I had not really considered the need for a new front door. The one we currently have is fine (although I don't believe that it is original to the home), painted white with eight square panels, it really screams boring. Well, needless to say, I am now seriously thinking about purchasing one of those doors. Here is a very primitive "drawing" of my current front door (was this style even popular in the 1950s?):
Walking through my neighborhood, I can see that many of the homes still retain their original front door - many of which resemble those at Crestview Doors perfectly. I love all the doors, but one style in particular (The Woodrow) completely enthralls me. I first saw it in this home that was for sale a few months ago (near my own home):
I love this door!!! I don't know why, I just do...I must have it.
