Going Dutch.

I like to keep a mental (and Pinterest) file of all the details that would make up my dream home- from furniture to paint colors, trim styles and doors. Yep, doors. Especially a good, cozy, dramatic, lovely dutch door. I love the look and function of these doors and thought I’d gather together some great examples of employing dutch doors in various style homes.

How about the bold exterior color showing when you open the top of the door? So great.

Clean, modern farmhouse style.

I really wish I could bake cookies in here right now.

Check out the diagonal planking on the exterior of this one.

I posted this house a few weeks ago but could not help posting it’s pure perfection again.

I adore the combination of brass, green, white and blue patterned pottery here.

Dutch doors are GENIUS if you have pets- you can corral them into a space while not feeling like you’ve locked them in.

My parents have an interior dutch door on their laundry room and it’s the perfect spot for time outs for the dogs when they too rowdy- you can still hear them but keep them contained.  Same goes for kids- they are kind of fabulous on playrooms- you can hear everything but know they are safely in a specific room!
