Black on the Back?

12.17.2009

After seeing this post... it started the whole cycle of wanting to do something new to my house. I haven't had a project in awhile- so I'm thinking of tackling this one. Here is the front door belonging to Jenny's Mom.
Before:

and After:

While my entry is very simple and plain--- I'm contemplating painting the interior side of my door black (the exterior side is black). But now that I look at it--- I just don't know. It may be too much of a contrast in that area. What do you think?

You can see the rest of this part of my house on a tour here (if that helps you with knowing if the black will work or not).

DEFINITELY!
I always try to talk my clients into painting their front door. If you're scared of black Sherwin williams urbane bronze is a really good color. More brownish.

I think I would like it . Your house looks so cozy. Love it. Are you showing yet?

Mary said...

I think it would look great! Go for it!!!

Southern Aspirations said...

Ooh I think it would! Great call!

LindsB said...

I say why not try it, I think it would look great. Worst case you just paint it back white.

doug said...

do it.

I can't wait to see what you do. My door is like yours, just flat on a wall. I've had several colors taped up but I don't know if it would look like a black hole since it is on a wall and not an inset foyer area. I was thinking more of a black/brown or black/grey instead of solid black.

I had missed that post but the results are fantastic! It's going to look great!

Katie said...

do it!

whitealderhome said...

Do it!! I painted my door black (it's also black on the outside) and LOVE it. It now adds some punch to the entry.

My front door is black but I've never considered painting the interior black. I love it, so dramatic!

Jesse said...

I saw this post a while back too, and have been contemplating the same thing. I recently repainted the outside of my door a deep grey and think that would be a nice fit. Now to get to it.

Caitlin said...

Try a charcoal gray. We just did it for a client and it transformed the whole space.

Angie said...

I say leave it just like it is! It's stunning in a very simplistic kind of way! ;)

I think that it would look great. I like Caitlin's charcoal gray suggestion too. I can't wait to see what you do! Love your house, Brooke!

Renae said...

It will be FAB...DO IT! (like the charcoal idea as well!)

Black or charcoal. It's only paint after all. I think it'll look great, and hids the dirt and fingerprints, too. xoxo

Gwen Driscoll said...

I would paint it charcoal. If you paint the trim around the door & sidelights it will make it look more intentional and a statement. It looks awesome when its complete. We do it a lot in projects. Good luck.

OK, I'm agreeing with the charcoal grey. And maybe a wreath on the inside of the door, too. Why should the people inside not get to enjoy the beauty, too?

Design Actually said...

I think black would look great! I painted my interior door black and it made such a big difference, I say go for it! You have a beautiful & cozy home:)

PS~Erin said...

I like the idea, but my vote is for that color of the front door on Marianne's blog today (or yesterday). I'm in love with it and think it would work quite well in your space.

PS~Erin said...

Oh, and if you figure out what color it is, do share with me!!

No.35style said...

try it...i've liked the idea of black interior doors like courtney's from inside the loop for sometime now.

Geezees Custom Canvas Art said...

I like the black a lot...and the rest of your house is beautiful!

Developing Designs said...

Go for it!! It's just paint after all. :)
Apartment Therapy did a post on black doors with some great images. They are timeless and very classy, you can't go wrong. You could apply simple moldings if you wanted to give the door a little more depth. Good luck, definitely keep us posted. Happy New Year.

Like you, I also get motivated every time I see beautiful inspirations like this one. It makes me want to try something new. The last time I renovated my house, I replaced my old patio door with a French door. It’s beautiful and my family and friends found it interesting too! :) So did you try painting the entry with a black coat?
