One of my favorite details in the house: the horizontal lines on the interior doors. They echo the horizontal lines on our front door as well as the customized lines on our windows.

These are from Lynden Door’s Denman line.

Just like in our kitchen, I wanted the doors in the house to be simple, but opting for bright white instead of natural wood. The purpose of this was to avoid the house going too dark with all the brick and dark wood in the common areas.

Trim is essentially complete, so all of our closet doors arrived just in time.

For the doors, we decided to shop local, and we could not have made a better decision. The salespeople were knowledgeable, helpful, and went out of their way to talk me through the details. It was such a different experience than when we ordered our front door from a big-box store.

Lesson learned. Shop local.
